  1. Check out dog boots on amazon. I’ve used them since fall of 2018 and they have saved my rugs and no more wiping wet paws. Walkee Paws waterproof dog leggings. They look ridiculous but they stay on and work great as long as you put them on correctly. And a bonus is fun to watch your dog walk in them. And now, back to the weather...
  2. Well, I am happy to report it’s snowing. Nice surprise to wake up to in Boone.
  3. Well I’m a little confused....Boone is under a WWA but looking at forecasts, precip doesn’t come in until lunch when temps go up. Was hoping for some wintry weather tomorrow.
  4. Windy and 31 off of Poplar Grove/ Russ cornet finally feels like winter
  5. Is anyone else having problems with the Ray’s Weather app for iPad? I’ve deleted the app and installed it again twice but it still doesn’t show correctly. The app works fine on my phone.
  6. Some snow mixing in with the sleet now.
  7. It’s snowing in the Axton/ Martinsville, VA area.
  8. Snow and sleet in Eden and Reidsville this morning. It was coming down quickly but it’s moved out now.
  9. The Dan is flooding in Eden in grassy areas along Hwy 14 as you come into town from Reidsville. I’m not aware of road issues as of now.
  10. As a northern border county, I’ve read that those counties should see the best possibility of snow, sleet, zr My high temp today was 45 or 46, car said one, house said one. Clouds were lurking most of the day and finally settled in early to mid afternoon. its now close to 8 pm, and my temp shows 43.2 at the house. No precipitation so far and I’m wondering if we see anything but rain.
  11. Icing on branches, gutters, grill cover near Boone this morning.
  12. It’s snowing here in Eden, dime sized flakes coming down. Well, it didn’t last long but it was nice to see it snow.
  13. Well it’s Thursday evening at 10:45. My kids have been inside all week studying for exams that were to start this week. Exams were cancelled and school was cancelled tomorrow. They are outside for the first time sledding and having a blast. It’s amazing that they are able to enjoy this snow at this point.
  14. All sleet now, temp up to 31.5 and another cypress down as the first one was being cut up. Edit Snow is mixing in but flakes are tiny.
  15. 15” so far, all snow. Power has gone off a few times but came back on after 20 minutes. 25 ft cypress down across the driveway; missed a car and the garage by inches. This is truly an amazing event at any point, let alone before the middle of December.
  16. We had no ice this morning off of Russ Cornett and Poplar Grove at 4000 ft. Went down Russ Cornett to Winklers Creek to go into Boone and was shocked by the amount of ice on the trees.
  17. I’m above The Cottages and there’s nothing on the ground up here. Still tiny flurries falling though.
  18. Small flurries here as well, off Poplar Grove and Russ Cornett. Should have said I was in Boone, not Eden.
  19. Second tornado warning for the eastern part of the county.
  20. Can anyone give me information on Rockingham County? Tornado siren went off but we can’t find any info for where is it or where it’s headed.
  21. I know IMBY posts are frowned upon. I am confused though after reading the last page on Michael. Some posters say for NC the NW side of the storm will have a tornado threat, which goes against what I thought I knew about being NW of the center. I was happy to be in the NW portion, Rockingham County, until I read those posts. Another post says the worst weather will be east of the central piedmont. Is there reason to discount the NAM? What’s the general consensus? I wasn’t too worried, just expecting rain and maybe some wind. Now I’m wondering if I was too hopeful. And yes, if you can’t figure it out, I’m terrified of tornadoes.
