Holly crap..... Charlotte has only had a thrid of the rain that Raleigh has had this month? I wouldn't have expected that. The rainest part of the state by far is the mountains (most would think it's the coast, they're a close second). Parts of the mountain region of NC get over 70 inches of rain a year.

Actually, both the wettest and the driest locations in NC are both in the Mountain Region and only 50 miles apart.

WETTEST WEATHER STATION

91.72 inches Lake Toxaway, Transylvania County annual average

DRIEST WEATHER STATION

37.32 inches Asheville (Downtown), Buncombe County annual average

I also just realized that I contradicted myself.... I said the Mountains were by FAR the rainiest, and then went on to say in the same sentance that the coast was a CLOSE second. lol

91 inches... WOW.

Welcome to North Carolina: land of the extremes. We either get too much rain or not enough.
Same goes for seasons...we hop from cold winter to hot summer in like less than 2 weeks time. We hardly ever get a Spring or Fall in the middle.

Yeah, I've definitely noticed that. I remember last year it actually snowed here in the 2nd week of MARCH, then by the next week it was almost 80. The fall colors here are definitely a dissapointment, with the exception of the mountains of course.

The Fall foliage in the mountains have been pretty much a bust for the past two seasons too. They say it's a matter of rain and temps. The right amounts at the right time. Green to brown to ground.

I wouldn't say the fall colors are a disapointment here unless you've traveled down all the roads. The drive from North Raleigh to Creedmoor is quite hilly and very beautiful in the fall. Are you really so unhappy? I'm sorry. Evenidently you've been disappointed by your move. I hope your return to your home state will be better for you. Vicki

Vicki... I think you need to read the rest of my posts. I don't hate NC and I'm not "mad at it". I just don't care to live here any more. I've given plenty of people good advice about things to do, places to live, and what to know about living here that ARE moving here.
