  1. Grit I've got a question. I was born in 70. Maybe it's just child romanticism but was there not times in the 70's & early 80's when it was cold coast to coast? ( Except maybe SoCal or S Fla) Say 77, 79, & Christmas 82? If so what were those indicies that allowed it to be cold continental 48? And can we not have those setups now?
  2. That was the storm of my life and I'm now 50.
  3. I'm in Greer it snowed here for about 20 to 30 mins then changed to sleet for another 20 mins or so. It was supposed to get to 45 here today our high was 41. It has cleared here since. Gsp was 32/28 @ 10pm definitely colder than what was forecast.
  4. I'm in Greer it snowed here for about 20 to 30 mins then changed to sleet for another 20 mins or so. Now nothing. It was supposed to get to 45 here today or high was 41. The temp at 4 was 39/23....
  5. Remember that storm well. Ppl at the same Elevation & Longitude as me further west got much more than my inch here in NE GVL county. Why? Because of timing. It hit u guys early morning hours in the case of NGA it was prior to sunrise. In some cases in NGA they had 6-8+ inches. It started here around 11am and didn't change over to snow til 12 noon. Timing looks to be good here in the Western Carolinas & NGA thus far.
  6. I'm old enough to remember both of those Christmas's. 83 was by far the coldest one of my life and I'm 50 now. I was 13 that year and u could spit and it freeze before it hit the ground. In 89 it was heart breaking watching the coast have a blizzard while ppl 100 miles inland had clear skies. Both very cold. Great pattern we are in. I totally believe this year we are going to have several area wide big snow storms.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Btw that storm i had 6 inches It was great....
