Views From The Mountains: October 2012

Missed By A Mile: To Snow or Not To Snow


Big Sandy Blows Through

Being about 500 miles inland the mountains of Western North Carolina and Northeast Georgia didn’t suffer from the ill winds of Hurricane Sandy.  The big, bad wolf huffed and puffed and blew a lot of leaves around but otherwise we were, fortunately, unscathed!



In addition to blowing the patio furniture around, Sandy blew in some really cold temperatures. Maggie Valley, about an hour east of us, reported got 3” of snow overnight!  Higher elevations like Boone and Banner Elk where the bigger ski resorts are located received even more and may even open a trail or two!

I was disappointed though when I took the dogs and cats out this morning and there wasn’t so much as a speck of white on the deck, cars or yard!


One of our favorite things to see, early in the season, is the dusting of snow that appears on the tops of the mountains. Needless to say, while driving to the office, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to stop and photograph the first snow of the season.  This shot, of the Tusquittee Mountain Range was taken about a mile from our house.
