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!

Perfect snow day in Boone, NC

I think Log Cabins look the best in the snow!  Here’s a photo I took right out my front door this morning.  It snowed 8-9 inches in Blowing Rock in roughly 15 hours.  I love lounging next to the wood stove with a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground outside.  Perfect day in the High Country.

Snow Update: Big Snow in Boone, NC

Tonight we are expecting the largest amount of snow Boone has received in several years. In anticipation of the harsh weather to come, grocery shelves have been cleared, though snow has hardly accumulated with the sun in the sky. Now, settled in by the cozy wood stove, we wait to see what nature has planned for the evening. The snow is falling faster, with little wind to alter its path. Awaiting the forecasted 6-10+ inches, I will hunker down with the rest of Boone, enjoying a taste of winter, at last.

One of the coolest parts of my job is being out in the elements every season, every year.  Here I am in Echota showing condos in the snow.  We were the only ones around and I remember how calm and serene the scenery was.  It was a very fun day showing condos in Boone, NC!

Searching for Property in the Snow – Echota

Tuesday was one of those surreal days we get while showing property.  We were out looking at log cabins in the Boone/Valle Crucis area and then transitioned to rustic condos and townhomes.  It started to snow when we left the office in the morning and it just kept coming down!  BIG snowflakes floated down so elegantly and covered everything with such beauty.  There was something pure about showing properties while it was snowing and being the only ones in sight.  I haven’t had that much fun showing property in some time!

It was a chilly morning out on the South Fork in Ashe County!  Here you see a wide stretch of the New River scattered with big ice chunks floating towards Todd, NC.  Rural Ashe County real estate sure is fine!

Zero degrees in Blowing Rock, NC

It’s a cold one out there today…cold enough to freeze your nose hairs!  Nonetheless, we still had to get out for some fresh air and to check the scenery.  Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the simple things in life, but on days like this, it’s hard to miss the simple and serene beauty of Boone, North Carolina.  We love it here and so will you.

Winter Weather: Boone, NC vs Wilkesboro, NC

boonencvswilkesboronc

One of the great things about Boone, NC is the weather.  Living here you get to enjoy all 4 distinct seasons.  I took these photos yesterday afternoon within 30 minutes of each other, only 15 miles apart.  The key is the elevation change.  With Boone being around 3300 ft elevation, Wilkesboro drops off sharply coming in at roughly 1000 ft elevation.  It’s amazing how different the weather can be off the mountain!  So this summer when it’s scorching in the piedmont come on up to the High Country and enjoy the cool mountain weather of Boone, NC!
