I wore shorts in during cold weather for many years following graduation...a habit I picked up on the mountain.
To this day, no matter the accumulation, I shovel snow wearing shorts. Also something I started while in college.

Being cold is one thing....being wet and cold takes it to a whole new level. Waterproof shoes in Boone are so important. ( AND WOOL)


Is Boone, NC considered a rainforest?
Did you know that Boone, NC is truly in a temperate rainforest? On average, Boone can get about 4.4 inches of rain per month. It is set 3,333 feet above sea level and that coupled with its rainforest surroundings make it a magnet for fog.Jan 30, 2021

Speaking for those of us who still spend extended periods of time up there during the winter, I'll respectfully disagree.
Not to mention how winter goes on and on and on...much like it does in the northern US.

This is true!

My Freshman year in the late 80’s, it snowed twice, 3 feet deep both times in April!

They piled up the snow in the stadium parking lot and melted all summer, like a giant iceberg!

I DID know this! Growing up in southwestern NC, we were taught this in 5th grade. You can just about count on a rain shower every day around 2-3 o'clock during the summer. It makes for really nice, cool afternoons.

I've lived in Boone full time for over thirty years, and the winters are most definitely milder than they were 20-30 years ago. Temperatures are warmer and snowfall is less. This isn't just my opinion because the data also shows this to be true.

Sure did and the number of visits to the student health services went through the roof because the stairs became slip and slides. We used to sit at the student union and count the number of falls. The town actually ran out of salt at one time. Good times.
