North Georgia Weather

What a week to be camping. I sure am glad we are in a heavy 5th wheeler. We are at Mountain View Resort in Blairsville, GA right now and the weather has been horrible. Over 4 inches of rain yesterday and today! The straight line winds have reached 50 mph and our 5th wheeler has been rocking. The wife is ready to pack up and go home! Not a good time to be traveling so we are going to sit tight. I just hope the oak tree next to us stays put. The leaves are going everywhere. One thing we cannot control is mother nature. One thing we are sure of, this unit does not leak. The rain has been going sideways most of the time and it is a quartering wind from the right front of the unit. I think that is helping! Not at a 90 degree right angle anyway. Supposed to start clearing up this evening. I hope we last that long. Some people left their awnings out at a lower angle protecting stuff from the elements while they are away. Wrong! Lots of awning damage around here.
Stay safe everyone!

We were at Mountain View about 2 months ago. I wouldn't quite call it a "Resort" though. We had to have the girl living at the Resort er ah motel move her car twice so we could get in and out between the two buildings. lol We stayed in spot #10. Took the excursion train on a Sunday. Can' say I recommend that more than once. Best thing we did besides visiting some water falls is go to Jasper and eat Mexican twice at Pueblos. Great food and margaritas!

Lots of flooding in the area. The main road to Blairsville from the airport into town was flooded and blocked off most of the afternoon. It is the Blueridge Hwy. Several of the permanent cabins next to the creek in mountain View resort had water surrounding them and the road was impassable in the campground. We talked to a permanent resident right behind us on the next lot and she said the water was waist high on her lot this past April during some heavy storms. Remind me not to buy a lot here! Lol. Got some pictures on my cell phone but have to figure out how to get them to my tablet to upload.

pictures Mountain View Resort Blairsville

Pictures taken from Mountain View Resort across the street from the Blairsville Airport on the Blue Ridge Hwy. The water was almost over the road here but has been gradually receding. Several of the roads in the resort are impassable this evening. Water levels are starting to go down so as long as we don't get any more rain, we should be ok.

Hope the rain stops and you can get out of there....

Good luck!

We arrived last night in mid Sc to rain and tornado warnings. This morning sky's are clear and cool. Looks like it moved quickly east during the night.

Not sure what Mountain View you were at but maybe it is not the same place. There is not a motel on the premises. This is the Mountain View Resort right across from the Blairsville, GA airport. There are a lot of very expensive motor homes here and this one little 5th wheeler. Sort of feel out of place! Lol
The sun is shining to blue skies this morning and the temperature was a nice 49. Let the fun begin! Water is almost back down to normal as long as no more rain dumps on us. We will be going home Friday.
Safe week to all.
