    Yep! Had 19" from 03-08 event and 24" from 03-13 event. It was the deepest snow depth I ever experienced (26").

    It was indeed in March of 1993. Most of North Carolina's greatest storms occurred between late January and early March so it's bizarre to have a huge event like this in early December... I doubt this event will reach 1993 levels (Boone saw 33 inches while Asheville saw 18 inches), but it's definitely up there with 1996 blizzard and January 2016 event.

    I still can't believe models are approaching to 20" in Asheville and Boone. That's Storm of the Century level of epic. If I didn't get 43" of snow in 5 days last winter, I'd be really salty right now.
  4. Yep, that's the biggest thing. It ALWAYS start with 15-25" medium-range model runs to get everyone hyped up only for the event to disappear because it's too warm or if the storm tracked too far north. Or if a warm nose sneaked in and turn 1-1.5" of liquid into ZR/sleetfest. The dread of disappointment is very real each event.
  5. Taking a peek at our southeast subforum, I'm honestly glad I don't have to feel huge emotional swings run-to-run anymore. Comparing to New England, winter forecasting is MUCH more of a headache and a huge pain as models are lacking consistency all the way to last minute that we enjoy up north. You're dealing with several factors such as the track of storm, the type of storm, extreme terrain of western NC mountains, and the strength of cold-air damming. The result? Extreme snow gradients everywhere.

    It's during quiet times like now that I appreciate my photography hobby that much more.

    Yeah, it's awful with the slush freezing up. I had to work hard to drive around the town tonight.

    It's nice to break a foot of snow for month of November.

    We'll probably end up around 6" when it's over with this last push. 8-9" depth on the ground.

    Latest measurement took us to 5.5". Not bad.

    It's certainly beautiful outside for sure!

    4.5" total last time I checked. Snow depth haven't change much, though, so clearing the snow board couple hours earlier definitely helped with the accuracy of snowfall total.

    It's still accumulating some here, but at pace of like 0.5" per hour or two. 4.5" for the event now.

    Rarely see them on Rt. 16 as well even though it should be enforced with visitors speeding like crazy. Anyway, approaching to 4" total here.
