Blue Ridge Reservoid

We have not had much of a winter, or snow fall… or rain this summer.  As a result Blue Ridge Reservoir, our local waterway, has been pretty devoid of water.  Our recent fires haven’t helped much, with air support dipping into the reservoir for water needs to put out fires.

Hiking into the river bed revealed the reality of the toll the reservoir has taken, when it was clear that the waterway was not only dry, but dry long enough to be covered with a fresh green grass.

While it was a beautiful hike, it heightened our need for rain… and a good snow fall this winter.

  1. The fire activity it’s share of the water.. and just lack of snow and rain . Hopefully we’ll be able to replenish this year.
