  1. I know I’m very late to give an OBS for this event, but I’m currently working on a project in Ducktown, TN near the N.C. state line in Polk co. When I left there at noon today there was about 4.5” on the ground and it was absolutely belting down. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that area had 8-10” now. And it isn’t under a winter storm warning from MRX.
  2. Made it back home. About an inch here in the hills east of town with light snow still falling. The radar echoes kinda died off but there is still a lot of downstream moisture. I’ll be very curious to see how much Ducktown winds up with.
  3. 4” on the ground in Ducktown and it is really cranking now. 29 degrees.
  4. I think East Polk needs a winter storm warning. I’m over advisory criteria now and there is a LOT more coming. Not gonna be a fun drive home his afternoon.
  5. Heavy snow in Ducktown this morning. Up to 2.5” with much more coming.
  6. Rocking and rolling now. Getting multiple gusts over 40. Some must be near 50. House is creaking.
  7. Wind is picking up here. Gusting over 30 at the moment. Up to about 3/4" of rain.
  8. I blame air conditioning for allowing more and more people to tolerate southern coastal climates. These areas have seen a huge increase in population since AC became prevalent.
  9. Not sure. My sister's BF took the photo. I think he at least had a polarizer on. You can't use the full solar filters during totality, there isn't enough light.
  10. From Watts Bar lake this afternoon. What an amazing experience. I can't really put it into words. I believe Mercury is visible in this image to the left. This was taken on a Nikon DSLR.
  11. What on earth is the reasoning for this? Why would they close off one of the best viewing areas in the country?
  12. I'm going to try to get to the top of the Cherohala Skyway. It's at 5400 ft, so heat won't be an issue, but cloud cover might be. There are several balds in the area that would make great vantage points.
  13. 39 this morning. Should be even cooler tomorrow morning.
  14. Just over 6" of rain this week, with 3.2" of that falling in the last 20 hours. Lots of roads closed now due to flooding. Haven't seen that around here in a while.
  15. 17 this morning. 2nd coldest temp I recorded all winter.
