Some 1433 vertical feet of drop in 4 miles, most occurring amid the final 2 miles, generates great power and great sound as water tumbles out of lofty Big Cherry Lake basin into Powell Valley of Wise County, Virginia.

There was a continuous wind being generated by the
overflow of water across the spillway at Big Cherry Lake.

This has been part of a very wet period following a dry May, with 13.00" to 14.00"+ of rainfall observed during the June 1 to July 15 period from the City of Norton to Big Cherry Lake.


Big Cherry Lake Basin
Part Of Wettest Area In Virginia

Wetness is no stranger to these high elevation lakes and wetlands of the sprawling High Knob Massif, as well illustrated on this website, and updated here for Big Cherry Lake Dam.

A general 42.00" to 48.00" of total precipitation has fallen across the high country from Big Cherry Lake Basin and Maple Gap northeast to High Knob Lake and the Norton Reservoirs so far this year 
( up to July 21, 2015 ).

To receive half a foot of precipitation in any given month of the year is nothing atypical for this place, where average monthly totals for nearly 7 years have been more than 6.00" .

*The current July average rainfall is 7.05"
( July 2008-Present )

These monthly totals do not include any secondary moisture sources, such as fog drip from trees and rime deposition and drop from trees, which add significant amounts of additional moisture.

A light afternoon drizzle developed at Big Cherry Lake and turned
into light rain, with embedded heavier showers, by early evening
( a general 0.05" to 0.10" of rainfall from the City of Norton to
Big Cherry Dam during the afternoon-evening ).

Although I did not take any video, you can click back-forth between these two photographs, which were taken 1 minute apart, to get an idea of the dynamic and changing nature of this tumbling mass of pounding whitewater.  It generated a continuous spray and breeze that also made it difficult to keep the camera lens clean!

Beauty In Town of Clintwood

Mayor Donald Baker and business owners in the Town of Clintwood have worked hard for years to beautify this mountain community.

Baskets of beautiful Petunias are hanging everywhere in Town.  I took a close up of these and other nice flowers while waiting on a hair cut at Sherri's Sassy Scissors.
