Leaf Season Is Here in the Mountains - 09/23/09 11:23 AM
Say good-bye to summer! Fall is officially here and in western North Carolina that means leaf season has begun. Peak leaf season runs from mid-October into early November although there is usually still plenty of color around as late as Thanksgiving as long as there are no heavy rains or winds to blow the remaining leaves to the ground. Sourwood and tulip trees traditionally kick off the season in late September with splashes of reds and yellows followed by the deep purple of the Bradford Pears (which aren't really pear trees, by the way). As we get into October, the (3 comments)
Western North Carolina Flooding - 09/21/09 09:15 PM
We live across from the Horsepasture River in Transylvania County...about 30 minutes west of Brevard. Even though we can't see the river from our front porch, we always hear it. It's typically a nice flowing mountain river that meaders through our community. Just down the street is a park where we can follow the river down to a waterfall. All that has changed after days and days of torrential rain here in western North Carolina. In the park, the river, which normally runs about 2 feet below the edge, is now spilling over at least 20 ft from where it usually (2 comments)

Where to eat when you're in Brevard, NC - 09/21/09 10:21 AM
When I visit a small town like Brevard, whether I'm there for a vacation, or just passing through, I like to look for those small out of the way places where the locals go. Chain restaurants are fine in a pinch, but it's special when good food meets local charm. That's what you'll find at a new eatery in Brevard, NC called The Gate Keepers Table. You'll find it in the WalMart shopping center on the corner of Hwy 64 and 276 which is also the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest. If you're here to visit a while, the Hampton (2 comments)
Does it have to be a TKO? - 09/07/09 10:13 AM
Negotiating a deal with "the other side" is a fundamental part of this business. Whether it's the price, the repairs, or any other part of the offer, the process of going back and forth is expected, and for some people, it's the part of the game they like most. But why do some agents and their clients feel like the only way to "win" is by a knock out punch, leaving the other side feeling beat up and bruised? I guess it's my nature, but in all aspects of life, I'd rather work towards consensus than conflict. I'd rather find that (2 comments)
Brevard NC Ranks Among Top US Cities For Raising "Outdoor Kids" - 09/03/09 07:03 AM
According to the August 2009 Backpacker Magazine, there's one more reason why Brevard, North Carolina is a great place to call home. The magazine, along with The Outdoor Foundation, have identified America's top 25 cities to beat what they call "nature deficit disorder" and Brevard ranks among the top 25 in a list that includes Bozeman, Montana; Boulder, Colorado; Burlington, Vermont and others. To come up with this list, they examined 38 seperate metrics, including non-outdoor factors such as unemployment, obestity rates, and others. The formula gave greatest consideration, though, to climate and trail-specific data. Some of the key sources for (1 comments)
