  1. Thanks so much for the pictures! Congrats! I'm not in the Mountains but rather in Concord, NC. It's achingly miserable to literally be in the transition zone. Had 3"of mostly sleet from the big storm. 10miles as the crow flies and there would have been 10"+. Last time I had a big snow was 2012 when I had 9".. So ready for another Piedmont surprise storm. Had 16" in 2000 in Charlotte. IT'S TIME

    I'll be able chasing snow if I have to sit at my home just 1 MILE NE of Charlotte Motor speedway and be 5miles as the crow flies from all snow. The constant 85 transition line is just wearing me out! I'm not getting any younger and I love to park at 2500ft and watch the transition as I climb a nice 5000+ hill. I got the mountain snow fever living in the shadow of Brasstown Bald Mt in Georgia. It just amazed me that a 3hr hike, and an Elevation change from 2400ft where I parked, to 4800ft at the obs deck at the top was like being in different world's. Nothing like sitting up top in clouds and 40mph winds with snow swirling all around me! I need that adventure back, but somewhere in NC.
  3. You guys,please post your pictures of the snow. Please...tjx
  4. Are their any youth hostels open this time of year y'alls way? I can't bear another Sleet Fest imby. I'm on A budget. I would love to experience a storm like this one somewhere near or in the Black Mountains? (Is Pitching a tent on the Mt.Mitchell obs deck legal?) Haha Thx for any ideas !!

    Snow of varying intensity still falling near CLT motor speedway. Probably winding down from here on out. Very nice way to end an otherwise sloppy overall event imby. Seems like Charlotte is overdue for one of those surprise 12"+ storms we get about twice a decade!!! A good 90 days left for that to happen!

    Moderate snow in SW Concord near CLT motor speedway. The ULL has already given me longer snow duration then did yesterday's Sleet Fest. Gotta LOVE the Southern Piedmont.

    Mooresville usually fares very well with snow in this set up. But the fact that it's barely December worries me a bit. I'm in Concord, my heart is already aching. About 75% of the time I'm on the wrong side of the transition zone. In fact it might actually run through my backyard. Best of luck!
