I swear, we do better in the south with these weak systems more consistently than big "blockbuster" storms. No mid-level warming and just enough moisture to make us happy, by our meager standards. The jealousy level to yall's north and east is unprecedented atm... Congrats!

Yep. I think it was 2011 where it was extremely cold almost all winter. We had a small little disturbance that brought us an inch or 2, and stayed on the ground for a couple days. Light snow, but just so cold that it stuck so quick

It's absolutely ripping here, I can't see the hillside 1/8 mile away from my yard!  Some of the hardest snow i've ever seen. 1/2 inch on the ground, roads getting covered.

Measured 1 inch on the car now! I think i'm getting close to 2 inch per hour rates at the moment. Temp down to 31.7. The first time in my life I feel like i'm getting jackpotted with a band!

It's amazing what decent mid levels can do for a storm. Something we usually overlook with our big systems where we are walking a fine line up the atmosphere

If anyone deserves snow this season it's you after having so many fantasy snows vanish.

How are the roads there?  Starting to whiten up any?

My girls have a church basketball game at 2.  So far still on, but I’ll be mad if I drive over to the game only to find out it’s been canceled
