    Fox24 has a pic of a supposed touchdown in Ft. Valley, but can't tell where. i was following it cause my parents live off Hwy 96 west of the Ft. Valley.
  2. this thread is not the same without you, but thanks to your influence its still the coolest thread around. Hope you have been getting a lot of snow.
  3. yeah i'm surprised there was not a thread. it must be like when ski resorts close when there's still good snow on the mountain, because in the flatlands its 60 or 70 degrees and everyone's thinking spring. Hope you guys get a good one.
  4. speaking of snow totals. i suspect many of you have seen that snow pole outside of Freds at Beech. its impressive. I've been trying to find where that data is kept in a tabular format.
  5. the only snow reports i see (almanac - snow totals) are beech, boone, asheville, sugar, and warrensville). I suppose someone could ask on his facebook page, but i suspect that data is proprietary.
  6. thats a darn good question. my first thought was cocorahs, but it doesn't seem to match up to any boone cocorahs stations that i checked. I always assumed the beech mountain one was freds, but not sure.
  7. can I ask you a favor, did the video show up ok?  I couldn't figure out how to embed a video so I just put it on youtube and linked to it. thanks

  8. Beech Mountain Monday March 12 2018 around 8am It was really ripping fatties as they say.
  9. looks good! but you missed out on about 4 flurries down in Dahlonega this morning!

    Night snow or Day snow

    Day snow. it took about 40 years, but finally my love for sleep has finally surpassed my love of snow. I hate to miss ANY snow that is falling, so I'd rather it be during the day.

    2017 Banter Thread #1

    saw this map on TV the other day for the days heading into Christmas. not sure if it was one of the weather channels, or a hallmark Christmas show. I think it must be just one long range member I'm guessing from the GFS, but this is definitely an interesting look. My take is that the snow is streaming in so quickly from out of the North and it is getting squeezed between those two cold fronts and will eject out and shunt off to the Southeast and Southwest and bring lots of Christmas snow for our area?

    Not that i have noticed. I had cleaned the gutters out a couple weeks before, so there wasn't really a jam. the snow just covered the top and things were able to melt and go out as normal.

    This is a first for me, having to clear snow before cleaning leaves out of the gutter. This is a task i never even considered existed. This was also about 5 days after the December snow here in N. GA.

    December 2017 Observations, reports

    i could swear I saw a couple of flurries, literally about 20 crystals of tiny flakes. Sky is mostly clear but there have been a few very small clouds in the sky. its pretty windy and i've seen it do this when it was colder and a few flakes would get blown over from the higher mountains, but its about 42 here right now. I was just wondering if anyone in the mountains (Suches area, etc) has seen any snow today.
  15. it feels like cheating. i just knew there would be melting. I'm not sure what to turn into nws in the morning. I guess its valid, as we report both snowfall as well as depth on the ground. Glad you saw this, when we see all the reports on facebook and mine may look inflated. Suches has to be on track to get a foot or more.? They were running in the high 20s when we were sitting at 34 here.
