  1. You had me till the very last sentence. We used to have epic winter's. It's sort of rare now if we get more than 6 inches even NW of 85. I have loved this very cool spring. I'm an old cheapskate now and look forward to saving on the cooling bill. Hopefully from some of the posts today we can forestall the hot weather a few more days or longer.
  2. Those numbers are wrong in MBY. N GVL county had probably 5 or 6 inches fall but the BL was so warm it never accumulated to more than a dusting at a time. Each time it let up, Which was often it would melt. It was a few years maybe a little longer that Burger did the average Snow Fall for the majority of areas in the Carolinas, Maybe Georgia too??? He had GSP at 6.9??? If that number is accurate I don't think we have had more than that since 14.
  3. I cut grass mid to late march last year. I have yet to cut it this season. Only wild onions are growing in my yard. Had 3 snows, Not one was more than a dusting. A couple could've been several inches had it been colder at the surface. I give this winter an F 2012 was the only one worse... No snow at all.
  4. There was snow in the Upstate with this system but it was mostly cold rain literally 33 and rain. I think most of NW SC from Northern GVL, Pickens, & Oconee counties saw a dusting to as much as a foot in the highest peaks along the border. Just into NC it was a completely different story. It was a legitimate blizzard. WLOS has its tower on Mt Pisgah had over 2 feet. It was an amazing storm in the extreme western sections of WNC. Of course JAN of 87 & 88 we had 1 foot plus totals at GSP. The 88 storm was amazingly cold. As a senior that year we missed around 2 to 3 weeks of school. When we finally went back there was still snow on the road.
  5. Yes their were trees with leaves out already. And their was massive damage to trees and powerlines because it was a heavy wet snow. Literally stuck to the side of our house and just about everything else.
  6. My mom & late G'Ma talked a lot about that March with 3 consecutive snows on Wednesday. I remember the one in 80 and also a few in the early 80's. 80, 82, & 83 had huge snow storms. The one in 83 was late March our fruit trees had fruit on them and we had between 8-10 inches of snow that killed the fruit and damaged the trees badly.
  7. Btw that storm i had 6 inches It was great....
  8. This won't be one of those storms because I'm well north of 85 and although its been snowing since around 1pm. It will cover things with a dusting once intensity goes down then the lil that accumulates melts. I had more accumulation with the late Jan and early Feb events.
  9. What did she forecast yesterday? I was giving all my attention as a snow wienie watching Chief wienierologist CJ
  10. I live around 1100 feet in Elevation on the side of Paris mtn. The sleet begin to mix here around 11am Then changed to snow around 1pm. Been snow since but its so warm it melts on contact of everything. Occasionally when heavier rates come down it will build up a lil but once it slows down it melts off.
  11. Just went to put something in my car and i seen sleet pellets mixed in on top of my car with rain. I'm in Taylos about 2 miles SE of paris mtn
  12. Someone just posted snowing steadily at lake Toxaway just on the otherside of the border. Looks to heading south.
  13. CJ our local meteorologist said the newest model data had the moisture still coming down after midnight. Earlier it ended by 7 or 8pm. He said we have to keep an eye on this.
