Sometimes the humidity gets high. July and August are the hottest, most humid months. Everything is air conditioned here, so it’s tolerable and life goes on as usual, even on the hottest of days. I think we adjust to the climate we live in.

The climate around Lake Norman is mild. And yes, we do have 4 seasons! Spring is long and mild and the blossoming trees, shrubs and flowers are just beautiful. Summer is long and warm, giving us a great boating season. Fall delivers some of the most fantastic colors I have ever seen and you can’t beat a drive to the mountains to experience the beauty. Winter is short and mild with a few weeks where the lows at night will dip into the twenties and sometimes teens. Skiing is as close as a 2 hour drive in the mountains to our west. The average rainfall is about 3 inches per month. Best of all,we have tons of sunshine and blue sky!

There are many folks who have moved further South in search of warmer weather, only to find it too hot, and they end up coming here. This is the perfect climate for anyone!
