Yes, The Fines Creek/Crabtree areas usually hit the jackpot in NW flow events.

Yea, they are in a prime location for that.  Canton was getting it pretty good on my way up around 11:15.  There was still a solid dusting in the sheltered areas when I entered the “neighborhood” around 12 but our future lot and house has a strong southern exposure so most of what had fallen earlier had melted up there.  Looking forward to providing obs from there.

Balsam is a unique place to be. Haywood is a unique weather county in general.

Well I walked to the top of Big Bald (5500') a few minutes ago thinking I'd get some cool eclipse shots with the snowpack.  I got moderate snow still falling and 30+ mph winds with a temp near 0.  There's at least 5-6" up there in less exposed areas.  I'm over 3" now at my house.

Pretty clear here in Boone but still getting snow flurry squalls here and there even with the clear skies. Lunar eclipse is incredible right now.

My body is in shock. Was in 80 degree weather in and around Aruba all week and just got back tonight and it’s showing 9 degrees right now.

That just sounds painful man.  80 sounds really nice right now.

I had the pleasure of spending my Sunday afternoon cutting up two trees that fell on my rental house. Well... really it was one that fell on another slowing it down before it hit the house.

Can’t forget the ice first. Tomorrow night and Wednesday morning just east of the blue ridge 

I will pass on that. Hopefully it's minimal! I'm ready for another 12 inch-er!

What radar do yall use currently.  I was using intellicast.com but since they went to wunderground there radar map has not been up to date.

For no money, Accuweather Southeast works. I feel certain the pay apps are better, but it does give precip types.

I was sitting at 39 at 7am.  Now down to 30.4/29 and snow starting to cover the ground.  

Starting to have my doubts whether we will even see a flake down here in the valley; out with the moisture and in with the cold air; c'est la vie.

I am thinking you have a typo on those temps unless the freezing point has changed.  I was wondering out loud to my wife the other day if we would ever see dust again or is it just mud for ever more.

Everything is mud, that's what has caused me to fall twice lol.
