Mountain Weather North Georgia

Real Estate Agent with

For many of you you have seen on TV  the devastation that the ice storms this year caused. If you are in Big Canoe  near the top or on Monument Road in Pickens and Dawson County you have seen downed power lines and snapped trees. It almost looks like a tornado has gone through the area. This brinks me to the point of the post.

When you are choosing a location you do not have to live on the tip top of a mountain. I am at 2500 feet and have a great view as well as cool and wonderful summers. Last summer we ran our A/C for the total of a week. So when you are considering the mountains consider North Georgia and consider 1 ridge down from the top. On those windy or stormy winter days you will be glad you did. .Here is the view I am talking about.


View from near the top of a mountain

I don't know about you but this kind of view and some shelter from high winds 600 feet above me keeps me very happy

I also think not building right in the trees protects you from fire danger,

Charlie ---- you are right, you have a beautiful view -- I'm thrilled that you love where you live -- I can understand that because I love the "flat" land.
