Graham Counties, NC: Fontana Dam Opens Gates

Posted by Infra on Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Sluicing Fontana Dam opens gates to a bold surge of magnificent force. The spray covers both the parking lot and the trees on the other side of the lake. Icy weather makes for a fine layer of black ice on the driveway into the dam. The road closed initially but opened while we were there. The TVA person we spoke with said that two gates were closing at any moment. Hubby and I hurried to snap the photos. Aren’t you glad we did? – youvebeenreviewed on YouTube.
