Brevard North Carolina Real Estate Blog: October 2008

Early Mountain Snow

The mountains of western North Carolina are especially spectacular this time of year. If you ask me, Fall is the best time of year. We usually start looking forward to leaf season around July. This year's Fall has been exceptional. Mother nature has treated us to another incredible display of color. Every bend in the road seems to be more beautiful than the last.morning snow

One thing we normally don't expect this time of year, however, is snow. But this morning we woke up to a dusting of the white stuff and flurries continued until mid morning when the sun began to have its way. Aside from the fact that it messed up my plans to play a bit of tennis this morning (inside courts are a wonderful thing!), the weather has heightened my natural affinity for hand made quilts, cuddly sweaters, and chili in front of a roaring fire.

We have friends who live here only part of the year and they have already gone back to their winter home in Florida where the temperatures are more to their liking. He starts to shiver when the temperatures drop below 80.  For me, though, I can't think any place I'd rather be than right here in the mountains around Brevard, North Carolina.
