    Could any of the mods or red taggers comment on the government shutdown and if the GFS is getting the full current observational data input prior to each model run? Edit - Saw someone post in the mountain thread last night, that they thought the shutdown was affecting it, but don't really see where the would be the case...

    Off topic again... but wanted to thank you guys, Just home now from Bristol speedway, and a grand time was had by all, my daughter was terrorizing everyone in the Christmas village with her deft wheelchair antics!!! Also, Funnel cakes and hot chocolate were involved, would have been worth it at twice the price!!! Interesting though, we've got more fallen snow on the ground here in Saluda than anywhere along the way up there...

    Off topic question... Has anyone here been to the speedway in lights at Bristol? Is it worth it? $15 a car... Thinking of taking the family tomorrow, thought I should get some opinions on the matter....

    Out cleaning off the car and truck, not like I can make it up my driveway right now. When this freezes later I'd bet we will be able to walk on top of this... Wet and heavy... Looks like part 1 of this storm topped out at 18.25 snow/sleet accum. Raining right now at 34/34... can't wait to see what is coming later tonight Edit; Hope to meet Jim one day, next storm he has to come to Saluda!!!

    Hello from Saluda NC. Pics taken about 2 hours ago with my phone, will get out the DSLR when I warm up a bit. 30.2˚/30.1˚ according to friend down the street. He has a nice Wx station set up but doesn't belong to the forums, (70...ish older guy, doesn't like the internet) Right now 17.5 inches total, about 13.5 snow and the rest sleet. Moderate sleet with nickel sized flakes mixing in. Might have been some rain at time this morning. Wet heavy snow/sleet and am starting to worry about the roof as I am approaching '93's totals that were not near this wet. Shocked I still have power, heard some big limbs go down while shoveling the deck and ramp. Hope everyone is getting slammed with snow, this will be a storm to remember!!!!

    Absolute sleet fest going on this morning. 15.5 inches total, about 13.75 inches snow and the rest sleet. 27˚/26˚. Unsure of rates but I've never seen (more like heard) the sleet so heavy. Still have power believe it or not, though it has dimmed a few time this morning. Edit addition; Hey, does anyone have an opinion on if that warm nose is strong enough to flip this to all rain for a while down here?

    'till the wheels fall off!!! but seriously, looking at storm track just based on radar returns at least another 6 hours. Read earlier, someone mentioned the warm nosing getting up to Bristol TN. Not sure it will make it much past Caesar's Head SC
