Big Snow in Boone, NC!

Yesterday we had the biggest snow of the season with a range of probably 4-8 inches in the High Country! It’s always a treat to get a big snow and it’s an even bigger treat to go out and play in it! The four seasons are one reason folks like living here and winter is no exception. While it doesn’t look like we’ll get anymore snow this week, the temperature will take a dive and we’ll dip below 0 degrees in the next day or two. Yikes!! This weather is great for the skiing so if you’re thinking about making a trip, come on up this weekend for great conditions and enjoy the most snow of the season!

It’s always a treat to go up to the Reserve on Sugar Mountain in February!  There’s always such exotic weather when you’re up at 5,000ft in elevation.  Today was spectacular – icy tree limbs, puffy clouds and a cobalt blue sky.  If you’re looking to buy or sell in the High Country, you’ve found the right company – Boone Real Estate!

Great Home on the New River

I just love this home on the South Fork of the New River in Glendale Springs. What could be more peaceful than sitting by the banks of the Nee River at the onset of spring!

Icy Walk at Bass Lake in Blowing Rock

Walking Dinah at Bass Lake – Blowing Rock, NC

One of the nicest things about living in Boone is the ability to drive just a few minutes and find yourself at a beautiful spot like this.  Sara and I took Dinah for a walk the other night at Bass Lake in Blowing Rock.  It was more like ice skating than walking but it was still fun!  It’s so refreshing to be in the mountains in the Winter.  It was cold on the lake but it was such a pleasant evening.

First Snow in Boone of 2014!

FirstSnowofYear-BooneNC-2014-1

It was beautiful seeing the snowflakes once again falling on our winter wonderland! It always stuns me to realize what an enchanting universe we enjoy living up here in the mountains. Invigorating is perhaps the appropriate expression to describe winter’s first snow. Stately hardwood trees, scent of wood in the air and woodsmoke curling up the chimneys, a crisp snap in the air and brilliantly blue skies all tell me that the most beautiful time of year is upon us. Come marvel at the majesty with us – come to the mountains!
