North Georgia’s First Snow Fall Of The Season

The Mountain Life Team Blogger December 7, 2009

First Snow of SeasonSaturday I woke to two children screaming that there was snow outside! I rolled out of the bed…….mind you on a Saturday morning, and sure enough, it had snowed. It was a snow white winter land…..well except for the roads.

I am often asked in Real Estate, “How often does it snow in the North Georgia Mountains?” My usual reply is simple, “Sadly….Atlanta usually gets more than we do!” That is true to some degree. Now we have our fair share of light dustings, and occasional ice storms, but we don’t usually receive the kind of snow that most would think being here in the higher elevations of the mountains. I would say that our biggest winter hurdle here in North Georgia would be the freezing rains. It is extremely rare to have blizzards here in North Georgia. Our last blizzard, was the Blizzard of 1993 .

So if you are looking for a home for sale in Blairsville Georgia,  or a cabin for sale in Blue Ridge, GA. and you are expecting 4′ snow drifts, or to go out snowmobiling across the Appalachian Mountains, you better head a little more West!
