    As I am not native to Upstate SC, can someone please describe the 2000 Carolina Crusher scenario? Did the Greenville, SC area receive any significant snowfall? I could find online articles mentioning North Carolina totals only.

    '85 Arctic Outbreak Memories (from the Mid-South): The '85 Arctic Outbreak was well forecasted/predicted - recall reading about in the newspaper/on TV days prior High temp one day was below zero (I recall the meteorologists on TV were speechless/shaking their heads) - I used to watch (the regionally famous) meteorologist Dave Brown on WMC-TV Memphis all the time (BTW, I used to watch Dave Brown/Lance Russell hosting "Championship Wrestling" every Sat morning as a kid - had no idea I was watching history) The month of Jan/early Feb 1985 was incredible for wintry weather: snow started falling NYD 1985 (or just thereafter) and remained on the ground (after multiple other snowfalls) for 3-4 weeks (in Memphis, TN) I recall being picked up by the school bus in mid-January in mod-heavy snow (snow had just started) - got to school - heavy sleet/snow continued without abatement - and, we were dismissed about an hour later

    I grew up in Memphis, TN and survived that '85 arctic outbreak - I recall having one day with a high below 0 - we had snow on the ground for weeks and I was out of school for nearly a month (almost the entire month of January) - 70's/80's winters were great
