  1. Started as sleet here near Blowing Rock, and that keeps mixing in, but at the moment it is mostly or all snow and POURING. Road is already white.
  2. When freaking Blacksburg has us getting over a foot, and it’s 48+ hours out, it’s probably going to be a big event. They are conservative to say the least, though that’s not always unreasonable.
  3. Here in Blowing Rock it has really picked up in the last half hour. Sounds like there are a lot of problems on the roads in Boone.
  4. I would want to arrive before sunset Saturday, though an hour or two after sunset would probably be ok. Timing isn't nailed down yet, but the heavier stuff seems to start Saturday night through Sunday and possibly the first half of Monday. There are bridges and significant elevation gain between Wilkesboro and Boone (the last 45 minutes of the drive).
  5. Boone was getting it pretty good when I left work at 7. Let up considerably as I got close to Blowing Rock, though the wind certainly did not. 15 degrees at my house.
  6. Having 40+ mph wind gusts blow across my still iced-over home and yard is a scary sound. Lived here for a few years, we've had the ice and we've had plenty of wind, but this is the first time they've been simultaneous. Still, it's been a fun night. Rain changed over to snow on my way home as I drove through Blowing Rock, and has been snowing pretty regularly since. It looks quite pretty outside...now if I can get through the night without power loss or property damage, that would be great.

    Major Hurricane Michael

    About the only thing the panhandle can be thankful for is that this isn't a large storm. Hopefully the smaller size and fairly recent status as a major hurricane keeps storm surge totals down a little. 9-14' is awful but it isn't Katrina.

    Pouring snow a couple miles west of Blowing Rock.

    Another nice squall here over the last 15 minutes. This is my third winter living right along the Blue Ridge. NWFS events usually don't amount to much in this part of the county, but tonight has been fun.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Fort Myers metro area has ~725,000 people. Naples metro is ~370,000. I get what you are saying here, but I want to remind people there is not a path up South Florida where this storm does not have dangerous impacts for a large population.

    Major Hurricane Irma

    Seems to be most powerful in the Atlantic proper, not including Caribbean or GoM.

    Sleet in Blowing Rock right now, lol.
  13. Still 25 degrees at my house, a couple miles west of Blowing Rock. Meanwhile it's in the mid-30s in Foscoe and Seven Devils, both of which I can literally see from my house when it's not fogged in.
