39° and sunny skies five miles southwest of KECG. Gypsy Girl, my Redbone Coonhound, has had a lot of fun these cold and frosty mornings running through the grass.

I'll post again in the right thread.  Snowing steady here at the farm in Stuart.  A very nice surprise today!  No sticking, but looks amazing.

Wrapping up in Stuart but got a quick half inch or so.  Everything nicely covered but will melt quick.  Snow line set up about 3 miles south of the NC state line and was very elevation dependent.  ~1200' and up was solid snow.  Instantly flipped below that.

37 in Boone. One of the first times I’ve wished for the temp to go up. It was still below freezing late last night with snow still on the roads. I have to drive a trailer full of furniture to two different locations this morning.

Today is an absolutely amazing day.  This is exactly the fall days we missed 3 months ago.  Sunshine, breezy and a daytime cold front coming through blowing all the leaves off the trees.  Crisp clean air, the smell of fires and burning leaves.  Football on Sundays, great grilling weather when you dont sweat to death.  

Unfortunately I have no grass to mow or leaves to burn....they all rotted in place from record rainfall.  I cant enjoy the sunshine in my yard because I would sink 2 inches into the mud if I tried.  I cant enjoy watching my team play because, well, my team sucks and they dont play in January. 

Yeah, thanks Mother Nature and Old Man Winter for ganging up on me.  I'm not bitter........

42° on the way down quickly.

Nice to watch a big cold front sweep in during the day. Seems like they mostly come in overnight.

Temps have been drifting down since early morning.  Impressive wind gusts.

Some arctic air mass. 22°. That happens quite a lot in the winter where I am. Nothing but hype. That’s all this supposed “arctic blast” was. Hype.

15 degrees in Durham. Just because it doesnt happen in your backyard doesnt make it hype.

7 here this morning. Several mountain areas below zero. Stayed at 25 all day yesterday. Staying around freezing all day. Definitely not hype here.
