 Heaviest shower of the day. Things have dusted up nicely. It's 22.3 and breezy. This is probably the last of the season and it was a good way to end. I enjoyed today.
Yup, it's been a nice last hurrah. I've had flurries pretty much all day. Currently 18 with moderate snow. Should be a nice coating on everything in the morning.

Woke up at 8 and it was 9 degrees up on Lynn Lowry and right around 20 here, probably upper teens first thing this morning at day break. Wind made for a cold walk with the dogs at 10.

I have not done opening day in I can't tell you when. You do any good?

I usually don't go opening day either but time is of the essence now. I went up to South Toe in Yancey County and caught 4 including a 17 inch rainbow. I missed a rainbow closer to 20. Wading was unpleasant but water levels were about perfect. There were fewer people fishing than I have ever seen on opening day. Weather played a big part but I've seen even colder opening days.

A good time to go fishin' is when you can! Glad to see you enjoyed yourself! We'll go one of these first days, hopefully.

I was gonna go but had to help a friend move after she had paid someone $5k up front to move her and they did a halfway job and split. Maybe I'll get out tomorrow for a few.

Beautiful trout man!

Nice one! I caught a 16-18” one in an undesignated section of the Pigeon the other day while trying to catch a smallie. Hoping to get out and catch a few tomorrow for dinner.

Just getting settled back in at the house after our having our first baby. Little boy and everything went great. We were in the hospital for the duration of the worst of the cold. Was pouring snow on us walking in which was pretty cool for this weather geek.

We bottomed out at 13 at the house Friday morning after only reaching 32.7 on Thursday. Wound up with a nice dusting too after the late heavier showers.

Happy Easter everybody!

Not sure who all uses the NC EcoNet stations but they updated their website, dashboard, and added new features on Monday. 

I'm loving it so far, playing with the Mtn Research Station data. We had patchy frost yesterday morning (34.4°F) but only managed to dip down to 37.9°F this morning, no dice.

Yeah, I headed out to the Bent Creek area for some mountain biking, but it started hailing just before I got there. I saw some miserable folks riding their bikes back to their cars while getting hailed on and said "screw that."

What is that structure in the foothills, a mesolow? It keeps producing tornado warnings.

Yeah tried to post it but tapatalk wouldn't let me.

Better structure than some tropical storms from the past few years. That band on the NW side was intense.
