The devastating impact of hurricane Sandy has yet to be measured. Millions are without power, homes have been flooded, burned, or washed away.
Yet even the governor of West Virginia said this morning – “the silver lining is that our ski resorts will open early this year thanks to the snow Sandy brought.”
Fortunately the comment was made with a contrite spirit acknowledging the horrible losses others have suffered because of this storm.
So just how much snow are we talking about? Possibly two or three feet of the white stuff!
From a forecaster’s web page: “The cold part of Hurricane Sandy that is causing problems along the East Coast could bring 1 foot or more of snow to the mountains of western North Carolina, potentially allowing the region’s ski resorts to open weeks early.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the mountains of western North Carolina until 6 a.m. Wednesday.”
Across the mountains of North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and other areas snow has been falling at a record rate. Quite a few timeshare resorts have facilities in the areas affected by the early snow. If you own a timeshare for example at the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Mountains there is a good chance you may have snow there very soon. Right now it is snowing east of Asheville and more snow is on the way.
