Well, I guess I should feel very fortunate then. Wow, what a difference. You are east side also, correct?

Yes, I am east side also not far from the Asheville Mall.  The variability in accumulation over such a small area is amazing.

Very impressive!  Do you miss it all, or does the beach outweigh this?


Miss the snowstorms terribly. I get to live the chase with you guys. I love the beach but in a perfect world I’d have a place up there for big events. A special thanks to all of you for letting me ride along with this group. I rarely venture outside of it except for the tropical forum.

Jim is a really cool guy to talk to, helped me and some others push someone's truck out of the snow (I believe that was shown on TWC?) and was cracking jokes with the people who were there.

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!!!

This is officially the most snow I’ve ever seen in my life. We have 16” easy with some higher drifts, and it’s still lightly snowing. Just insane!

While I do not remember the Blizzard of 93 (I was too young), this was the most snow I have seen as well. I have 13 inches of snow in Morganton. Enjoyed building a small snowman, but walking around in it was rough! Who knows, but we may add a little more too the totals tonight and tomorrow.

Off to a pretty good start as compared to normal at KAVL. 11.1 for the storm.  KAVL snowiest December:  17.2    1876       So, there is a chance.

No I'm just a pass holder so I take advantage of it. I'm going to start at the paper mill next week.

I won a trip there for the weekend this time last year.  We checked it on a Friday the same day we got that foot of snow.

Yeah I remember because that was the weekend I took this girl I was dating to the candlelight dinner. You picked the perfect time to go last year.

My truck going through unplowed parking lot, once you stop it takes a lot to get going even in 4wd and chains. 532906cf6c0246ffb013a7947696e6e8.jpg

Yeah that was one of those long duration snows that stuck around because it got cold after the storm. Lol we where only suppose to get like 1 inch from that storm... The Biltmore is beautiful this time of the year with all the lights especially in the snow.
