    Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018-19

    Sure seemed like the storms bowed out coming up the valley last night, got some intense wind near blount/knox county line! 54 mph gust as TYS?!

    TN valley heavy rain/flooding week of whenever

    My company is drilling this one right now and I am looking for the solution (lots of grout pumped under high pressure likely). Looking to be about a 150K fix!! The amount of geotechnical issues caused by the amazing rainfall is insane... I have been dealing with mud flows in Knoxville... Mud Flows!!! My office is located in Hardin Valley, just off Beaver Creek. We were very close to getting flooded. According to FEMA flood maps, the flood line was somewhere between the 100 and 500 year flood event (much closer to the 500). Just insane!

    Nice little burst of sleet in West Knoxville/Hardin Valley area. Started accumulating on cars and grass, but seems to be switching to mostly rain now. Raw weather none the less!

    super heavy snow in louisville tn, just north of tys. Conditions went downhill very quickly. Went out in the jeep around 830am to mostly sleet with rain and trace snow. Switched to incredibly heavy snow by 9, over 1 inch on elevated surfaces, roads covered in very slick snow/sleet. Many smaller cars are now stuck! That escalated quickly

Heavy sleet just started in Blount County near TYS (just north) ...SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS AND NORTHERN TENNESSEE VALLEY TODAY...

    Can't stop looking at the GEOS 16 floater (Snow and Ice). Don't know why but watching the sunrise (and incredible shadow distance) is really cool...
