Hello Enos!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this holiday finds each of you spending time with family and friends, and may you “Gobble til you Wobble!”

This week’s weather is certainly looking to be a little warmer for the holiday. Don’t forget to make certain those heaters are in good working condition, and that you have at least one working smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector available.

Also, please don’t forget about those outside pets. It’s cold for them too. Make sure they have shelter and fresh water.

Do you see that big ball of light in the sky? I believe that is called sunshine! It’s been a while since we have witnessed this.

But, “Oh how we have missed you.” We were definitely needing some time to dry out and for the lake to have an opportunity to recede.

As of this morning, the lake level is 628.81 feet.

Buncombe: Annual Baked Potato Pile-On Oct. 27

By Karen Wootton

Enough is enough with this rain! The lake is rising and will continue to do so for about another week after the rain stops. Please, be safe if you are boating. There is a lot of debris everywhere, some submerged and some on top.

Plus, there are numerous run-offs on the road, and we like having our Buncombe families safe. So, slow down and don’t drive through high water. The water is over the lower road at the marina, no parking is allowed down there.

Please park in the lot across from the marina office. Also, the fire ants are everywhere, and so are snakes.
