Oct. 23, 2013. It’s snowing atop Beech Mountain on Wednesday morning.
At about 9:30 a.m., the Beech Mountain Chamber of Commerce posted on Facebook about the “First snow of the season in NC on top of Beech Mountain this morning … The 1st wet snow of the season is falling right now on Beech Mountain Ski Resort.”
Fred Pfohl of Fred’s General Mercantile added at 10:30 a.m., “We got some coming down.”
“You know it’s kind of pellets and snow, ice pellets,” Pfohl said, adding that it was snowing earlier in the morning, too, but then the sun came out.
This is, of course, nothing unusual atop Beech Mountain.
“Always in October,” Pfohl said.
Earlier in the morning, Beech Mountain Ski Resort noted that “snowmaking temps are finally here!”
