Here we are, early October and the weather could not be more perfect. The temperatures are stabilizing in the lower 60’s during the days and upper 40’s at night. The lake has a cooler, relaxing vibe this time of year and you find a few folks spending a little time on the lake enjoying the quietness.  The leaves are starting their transformation here as the maple’s start to show peeks of their stunning beauty. Life here in the Fall gears down and life seems to get a little simpler as we tentatively tip toe toward winter. The sweatshirts seem cozier and the hot chocolate taste’s more delicious as the mild humidity of summer vanishes, unmissed.  We look ahead to The Autumn Glory Festival and Halloween which makes letting summer go a little bit easier. Breakdown each season of your life and make them the best ever. Deep Creek Lake gives you the opportunity and backdrop to make special memories that are sure to be tattooed deep in your mind. Come visit us here at the lake and let your worries disappear and your senses come alive.  Be one with this diamond in the rough jewel called Deep Creek Lake that we are so lucky to have here in Maryland

Springtime Weather Update Deep Creek Lake May 19, 2016. As the abundant and looming Springtime rain gives us a reprieve from its fury we start to understand again why Deep Creek Lake is such a special place to so many. On my commute to work this morning it was refreshing to see Blue Skies above me as the fog burned off the lake. You notice instantly all the springtime flowers that have been blanketed by rain over the last few weeks flexing their colors and reaching for the sky. The birds have come alive and are vibrant in their springtime splendor with the warm temperature returning like a welcomed friend.

Deep Creek Lake’s Summer Weather

Growing up in the South around the beach I know all too well about the stifling, crippling heat that blankets the Mid-Atlantic during the HOT summer months. Consider this explanation/ definition relating to heat index.Heat index (HI) is an index that combines air temperature and relative humidity in an attempt to determine the human-perceived equivalent temperature — how hot it feels, termed the felt air temperature. The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, or sweating, which evaporates and carries heat away from the body. However, when the relative humidity is high, the evaporation rate is reduced, so heat is removed from the body at a lower rate causing it to retain more heat than it would in dry air.” (Source: Wikipedia)

How does all this boring scientific gibberish about summertime heat index relate to Deep Creek Lake? Well…IT DOESN’T!!

Here at Deep Creek Lake we don’t live our summers inhaling oven-like temperatures when working in our yards or doing outdoor activities. Instead, we enjoy comfortable temperatures from May-September that run from the lower 70’s to the low 80’s with much lower humidity.  Sure there will be a week or two where we get a spike in heat for a short period of time, but rest assured that it will be short lived. There is nothing more refreshing than it being 80 degrees outside (with low humidity of course) and jumping into a 75 degree lake. Rainfall during the summer roughly averages out to about 4” per month, just enough to keep the yards green and the flower’s flexing. I know and love a lot of great cities along the Mid-Atlantic that have wonderful architecture, culture, and people that I love to visit and explore throughout the year but I have a sacred place in my heart for refreshing Deep Creek Lake in the summertime.

                                           Deep Creek Lake Snow Event

 Deep Creek Lake Major Snow Event. Alright folks, this is what we have been waiting for. There is an intense snowstorm howling across the nation that will be at our door steps while we are sleeping tonight.  We have limped through this mild fall together and now it’s time to claim the spoils of our first legitimate snow event of the year

Deep Creek Lake locals are buzzing about the possibility of the 12’+ inches of snow that is forecasted to fall from the skies over the weekend. For all of you out of town ski/snowboard junkies I have this advice for you: Drop everything you are doing at work, round up your family and friends, and high tail it to Wisp Resort before the snow starts to fall. Tomorrow you’ll be rewarded with a nourishing helping of sacred powder that Deep Creek Lake has become famous for.

 I will be getting under the covers early tonight so tomorrow morning I can race to the bottom of the chairlift with a child-like smile to see if I can be one of the first down the mountain on virgin powder. If you make it there and hear some tall snowboarder yelling at the top of his lungs bombing the run “squirrel cage” that would be me!
