If you want to see decent snow just make a 30 minute trip to White House Tennessee tomorrow. Got probably close to 3 inches on the ground. We almost always do way better then Nashville due to being further north but also elevation is a big factor. Anyways it’s not far if you want to see a good snow.

That's awesome!!  I wish I could post the video I took yesterday.  I'm not joking guys, the flakes for about the first hour of heavy snow were huge.  They were 2 inches long by 1 1/2 inch wide.  I've never in my life seen flakes that big.  You could literally hear the snow as it hit the ground from the flakes being so heavy.  I picked up 1 and 1/2 inches in just that first hour.

Light snow falling this morning here at my place.  Finished up with close to 3-1/2 to 4 inches of snow, and about 1 to 1 1/2inch of sleet.  Great storm overall for MBY.  I hate that everyone wasn't as fortunate.  It's much more fun when everybody gets involved and starts posting OBS.  I am cautiously optimistic that Tuesday will be a good wintry day for the Tennessee forum.  

Yeah, we weren’t as lucky but overnight snow showers got us up to about 1.25” with that freezing rain layer underneath. Hoping for better things Monday night. Assuming we don’t have upper level convergence issues in play, we shouldn’t have to worry about dry slotting again.

I'm glad you guys got over the dreaded 1" hump then.  I'm sure you and your Son had a blast playing out in it too.  I with you on Monday night too, fingers crossed.

Yeah... the inch hump felt nice. Once you cross that threshold, it’s not so hard to engage most outdoor snow activities. Also, this is going to sound super vain, but I’m doing a late November mow next winter so if all we get is an inch, it will look like a lot more...lol.

Glad you got an inch!  It was painful watching areas just west and northwest doing so much better...  I was really cheering you on over here to get thumped.

This is so funny you mentioned this because I started doing it about 4-5 years ago when I realized it looks so much better when you don’t have grass sticking out of the snow. I usually do it with our last 70 degree temps in mid November.
