Winter Has Arrived on Beech Mountain

December 14, 2010

The deer were out in droves today, rooting to the ground looking for food sources.

 We had eight in the yard late this afternoon

 This six-point buck was with the group

 The views of distant mountains were crystal clear and accentuated by the coverings of snow.

 The snow sparkled like diamonds in the sun...simply beautiful.

The temperature was about 5 degrees all day with windchills of -15, which made it difficult to stay out for very long without risking damage to the skin.

We are expecting more snow, cold temperatures and high winds this week with most forecasts calling for more of the same throughout December.  Stay tuned!
