The last two mornings have provided one more fog to add to the count and this morning was pretty clear except in a few valleys here and there.
Today’s fog makes it 20 for 28 mornings with fog and even though many professional weather peeps might say that there is no correlation to fogs in August and snows during the winter – I’ll go on record right now and wager that we will see 20-25 days with some snowfall this winter. That happens every winter, really. Winter lasts around 90 +/- days and with an average, annual snowfall of 80″ or so here in the High Country – we are going to see 20-25 days with some light flurries-to-heavy-snow.
The photo of the day (at the top of this post) shows clear, blue skies atop beautiful, Beech Mountain. This new camera is at the sled hill which was moved to a more ideal spot across Beech Mountain Parkway. Check out that few.
We Live in Such an Awe-Inspiring Area
The video below was shot Wednesday evening around 8:15pm and it was taken from around 350′ above Watauga Lake in East Tennessee. The photo is unedited and not retouched in any way.
I shared it on Facebook but the quality/rez is better on the YouTube share below.

ANOTHER FOGGY MORNING
It was foggy out here at the lake, but we can’t count those towards our August fog count. I checked out many of the mountain cams around the High Country and ALL of them showed dense fog this morning. So that makes it 18 of 25 foggy mornings thus far in August.
The photo capture would have shown nothing but a gray-out, so I waited until just a moment ago to capture and show you guys our NEWEST Live Streaming Camera. It is already showing some amazing views as it pans around from the sledding hill atop Beech Mountain to an awesome, zoomed view of Beech Mountain’s slopes from across Beech Mountain Parkway.
Thanks to the Town of Beech Mountain for partnering with us to provide this amazing feed.
