  1. Wow, it was hammering here in Kernersville for about 5 minutes. Now just light snow. I guess I'll eat some crow.
  2. Slushy roads, at the most, being reported in the southern areas of CLT. Usual caution, but you should be fine. Enjoy the flakes! EDIT - neighbor texted and said they just drove through town and said the roads are completely fine.
  3. Hehe...this died a quick death. Even in their last gasps of winter the models couldnt figure it out inside of 72 hours. Seriously, I hope somebody is recoding the s*$t out of some weather models this summer. This was a horrible winter for man and models alike!
  4. There's an obvious reason. This thing panning out to anything more than a minor ooh and ahh type event is one step short of powerball odds. (Ok,ok, maybe getting struck by lightning) I mean really, we're talking about Mack and Shetley getting snow, together, on the same day, in April.
  5. Just remember, whoever starts a storm thread for this has to deal with the humiliation until December.
  6. Please dont do this to yourselves. Have some dignity. Cold rain is what we shall have, and nothing more. Our December snow broke the models. The FV3 hasnt been right since.
  7. Are you guys seriously playing Charlie Brown football again??? I come back expecting to find some discussion around Apr-June rainfall expectations and found this nonsense. April snow? Sure! Happens all the time.....in the mountains. Otherwise, dont torture yourselves. The grass is green, the sun is warm and the skies are blue.
  8. Don't get your hopes up. Just go run the sprinkler. My spidey senses are telling me that a dry spring into summer is on the way. Maybe it's because my leftover leaves are actually crunching again. I think that rubber band that Bastardi always talks about just snapped back.
  9. I'm at my wits end with this weather. Too wet to seed, then it dries out and I seed, now it wont rain for 2 weeks. So now I have the sprinkler on. FML!!!
  10. I'll see your superstition and raise you, it thundered yesterday here in the triad.
  11. Dont get suckered in man. Just plant those flowers and move on with spring.
  12. Very surprised to find a full dusting on my security cams up at the farm in Stuart. Everything white but the road. 1400'-1500' elevation.
  13. Still getting some 50-50 slushy flakes mixing in here in Kernersville. Noticed them during the heavier band we are having atm. Shoulda, coulda, woulda been a good one, but so goes this winter.
  14. If you look at total accums for the Triad against average you would have to say a solid A. But the way the winter rolled out I would say a D. Forecast models outside of 72 hours were horrible, frequency of snowfall was non-existent, rainfall continues to be a major issue, and I didnt even get to open my bag of rock salt! Glad this one is all but over. But I'm nervous about how bad summer might be if the seasonable weather patterns are this out of whack.
  15. Like all of us, Wow knew it was over when we 1) had a record smashing event in early december, and 2) never got a single event inside of 72 hours on a forecast after that december event. Fantasy models delivered a perfect score on fantasy snow.
  16. Saw Matthew East on FB mentioning a nationwide cold spell for 2nd half of March, including a lock in the southeast. Dont want it, dont need it. I'm done with it. Bring me 50s and DRY!!
  17. Never thought our "bookend" would be found in SENC but congrats to you all and enjoy the day of sledding and snowballs........quickly!!
  18. Florida State Univ under take cover TOR warning!
  19. What does the threat look like in eastern NC as these storms climb north into much cooler air? I'm so late on this one. I saw the severe thread started but didnt even given it a second thought. Just goes to show how incredibly different our weather can be across this subforum. Awful day!!
  20. Moving on......pre-emergent goes down after work tonight. Spraying winter weeds tomorrow morning. Trailer load of mulch this weekend. This winter is DONE! How can the ski resorts in NC even manage to stay in business??
  21. Technically our Dec snow was in the fall, so we never really had a winter to begin with. So I think WINTER FAIL might be more appropriate.
  22. Let me put this mildly, it is beyond obsurd that Blacksburg hasnt issued flash flood warnings yet for at a minimum the border counties. I just drove back from Stuart and the Dan River is out of its banks around Danbury. The surface water flowing across roads is crazy and there are already trees uprooting, and it hasnt even got windy yet! This has the makings of a severe power outage event if it gets even slightly windy tomorrow.
  23. This rain is really doing a number on all of us. Now a major landslide is reported across I40 at the TN state line closing ALL lanes. Detours are 200 MILES around. Hope they get that cleared soon but the weather wont help. Probably some very unstable ground out there. Edit - they wont be doing an assessment until sunrise. They tried to clear some of the slide and had rocks falling down on them. So at least a day or two at minimum. Good luck mountain peeps.
  24. Already has. Very light rain now and everything has melted. Now we await 32° overnight.
