Western North Carolina has been in a drought for the last few years and I can unofficially say that the Drought is Long Gone!. In Maggie Valley on friday we receieved more rain in a 60 minute period than I have ever seen! It was amazing! I thought we were all going to float away. The benefit of all this rain besides the elimination of drought conditions has been the increase in stream levels. Our waterfalls, creeks, and stream are downright gorgeous! I have posted a video below of some of the more popular waterfalls in our area. Wonder why people love to visit our area? Take a look at the video and you will see!
