If you have a shot to get your yearly snow average in one storm the first part of December, that's a big storm.

Water is wet.

There's also counties in that dma that are pretty far south of the triad. I think she is being a little conservative but it goes without saying that a full fledged "omg it's going to snow" message would freak people out, and if that forecast is blown less people may watch that station. There is palpable pressure, from the sales department to the news director, to have this right. Before I got into broadcast, I thought, "oh hue hue hue I'm going to be brazen and I'll speak my mind!" but it's *a lot* harder said than done. 

Yeah I need to get new sleds for my kids tomorrow so if she (and the other local mets) could be conservative until tomorrow evening that would be perfect.

Took a personal day and going to be chasing this one Sunday am into Monday. Will be interesting to see where to go. Asheville would be convenient from Atlanta but I’m not sure that’s failsafe. Any ideas guys? Glad to be back on the forum again!

Somewhere along a line from Charlottesville to Asheville, I am currently looking at the area around Sparta.  Still have to Friday to hammer down specifics. I did order a new snow shovel on Amazon, professional grade.

Keep me posted on what you end up deciding. I’m gonna have to do some more research also.

If I were chasing I would choose fancy gap, hillville, or Wytheville, somewhere that’s still going to get CAD bleeding in but also at elevation. Proximity to I-77 and route 52 or 58 is also critical, interstates and us routes will be plowed first and foremost making sure you don’t get stranded longer than intended.

Agreed. CAD will be well entrenched from Wytheville to the Blacksburg area, as usual. Southern Floyd County also tends to jackpot, but there's not many options to stay in that area. Hillsville would be my location of choice as of right now.

I'm looking at Highlands, NC.   Nice town and sits at 4,100 ft.   They should get smoked, closest spot to Atlanta in my opinion.   OF course subject to change

They’ll get smoked but that drive out 64 from 23 is gonna be treacherous once you hit the gorge and head up the mountain. You could go out to/come from  Sky Valley and have less curves but that road might not be plowed as soon as 64.

Yep, I do know that. But I am supposed to make storm preparations and I don't know whether to buy a snowmobile or a rowboat. :)

Buy both, keep your receipts, take the unused one back:P

I have a small cabin on snake mountain in zionville, nc, but am worried I wouldn’t be able to get off the mountain for a week.  Will be following on webcam.  Safe travels to all who venture out.

Tonights 0z runs should be interesting to say the least. The trend on a couple of the models recently have been a more southern track and a stronger cold push. Either way this is great chasing material.
