To splash o’er craggy staircased traces!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

Great Smoky Mountains by Richard WeisserAdeste swirling shrouds of lace,
And swathe in cobalt velvet grace
Each crest awash in Heaven’s dew
Each trough collects the residue
Dispatched at once to distant places,
To splash o’er craggy, staircased traces,
As tonic courses through the veins
So too comes life from mountain rains!
                (R Weisser 2014)

Mountains are one of Nature’s best water collection systems. They form a meteorological barrier that traps moisture and triggers rainfall.

And since this abundant precipitation occurs at the highest elevations, natural water delivery conduits can disperse the precious liquid to distant places.

With water comes life! The flow of fresh water is the lifeblood of the land.

 

And I am thankful for it!

Good morning Richard.  You live in a beautiful area without doubt.  We are in for a calm, sunny day with no sign of rainfall.  We are finally up to where we should be in the rain area but could use more at our home.  In fact the sprinklers are on now.

When I travel to remote locations in this area, usually following a path to a fishing hole, I usually manage to "taste" the water. 

What I really love is the definite mineral taste of fresh water in a stream.

Delightful.

In fact, when a buyer/client builds a home in my area, I always want to "taste" the water before the complicated treatment equipment is installed.

No doubt it all goes back to the wonderful well water we enjoyed on my grandparents' farm.

WE need a little life to run down on us.  Even with the record rainfall, we are getting near drought conditions again.

Indeed. Everytime we head up to the Mountains I am reminded of how pure and fresh the water is and I'm not afraid to wash my face in it. 

Nothing like our little stream that flows through the metro area!
