  4. My Great Pyrenees’ first time seeing snow! (She was underwhelmed; ice balls in her paws and all that). Photo taken just about when the snow started accumulating. We have about 1.5” and still snowing.
  5. -1 Celsius and about an inch of snow on the ground so far. First measurable snow we have had (north Alabama) in about four years.
  6. Mixed sleet and snow; temp is 1 Celsius in Madison, AL. Temps dropping and plenty of moisture headed our way. Huntsville NWS almost always calls it right but they might have missed this one. No WWA yet...
  7. Wonderful to see folks getting snow in November!
  8. Want snow? Try I-81 N just north of Harrisonburg, VA. I’m from the land of no snowplows though, so 3-4” is snowpocalypse.
  9. On I-81 North near Marion, Va; it’s 37F with steady rain.
  10. Sleep in airport hotel, if only to avoid the stress of wondering if roads will allow you to make the flight on time.
  11. I’m a southerner who will be visiting Washington, DC Wednesday. Yay! It rarely snows where I live. Am I correct to assume that DC and suburbs are well-equipped with snow removal equipment and the roads won’t shut down or be impassible? we were going to fly general avaiation, but since that not possible will be driving a 4-wheel drive vehicle and will bring snow chains just in case.
  12. I remember this storm very well: was a junior in high school in Carmel, Indiana. We had a ranch style house and the snowdrifts were up to the soffets. Good times digging out the front walk-took me an entire afternoon to clear about six feet of sidewalk. It was my first thunder snow too; I wrapped up in a blanket and looked out a window for most of the night of the storm. Winds were absolutely howling too, gusts were about 70 miles per hour, probably more.
