I did not know that Asheville NC had that problem. . that is a big risk to take and build a home at the slope of a mountain

Susie,

Why isn't this making national news like the mudslides in California, I wonder?  Stay safe!

Proof again if you think you've got it bad just look around someone always has it worse. That is a nightmare!

Wow, that is crazy, I saw a video of a landslide and it is crazy when the earth moves or shifts.

Wow! I did not realize that it has been that long since I had visited your blog. Where is the time going? It is amazing how we are still at the whims of Mother Nature...

Gita, there will probably be more slide issues, and not too many will be covered by insurance.

Fernando, unfortunately Realtors are not FOR slope ordinances. (I won't comment about that here...)

Mike, MSNBC covered it, but not for long.

Sally, isn't that the truth!

Linda, I'm sure as a former mountain girl you can REALLY relate to the issues here.

Ross, you just can't fool with Mother Nature.

Michael, time flies when you are having fun!
