Yeah I like Cataloochee too. I just really like Sugar. Plus I can go eat at the Daniel Boone Inn one night

Don't go there. It's nowhere near as good as it used to be. Stay closer and go to the Banner Elk Cafe.

Snow pics from back home in NE Hickory courtesy of my wife.

Now, I'm in Charlotte with an ugly 38 and rain...

No snow up at the cabin in Maggie valley but man we are up in the clouds. Really hopeful that the ULL will give us some love tomorrow night!

Just got home from CLT. Went north on 16. Nothing on ground until construction zone began. Then nothing in Conover either. Got home and still a good half inch here. Based on my wife's description, I think we had an inch several hours ago before the heaviest stuff ended.

3.5 inches for the southern escarpment and not even an advisory from nws_gsp. Shameful.

There has been a lot of chatter from NWS offices around the country in the last year or so trying to make the argument that the new 5G network currently going up all over will only interfere with the weather satellite transmission and could potentially lead to missed data and less accurate forecasts. Of course the government did their best to shoot that theory down...No one knows if this has potential or not. But, what if this could possibly be the reason why this happened today, who knows? This was just a surprise snow missed by just a several hours by the NWS what if this was a potential severe weather event with a real tornado threat that the models missed this bad...Then you will be talking about some serious ramifications...

Picked up another .75" of snow today.  You can tell how bad of a season it's been when I'm counting the ones under an inch lol.

How many T's add up to an inch? Wondering for a friend.

3 T's = a skiff

2 skiffs = a dusting

4 dustings = an inch

1 inch = a nickel

That looked like the train yard?

It was simply near a RR crossing.  Pulled into a volunteer FD right next to it.  Hopped out of the car and snapped a few pics near the tracks.  Here it is on Google Maps:

The other one was from the church parking lot in this Google image:

Nice.   Here over on Beech at 4650.  Not trying to be a party pooper but the 3k NAM often overdoes NW flow type snow events.
