Dude you ain’t joking. I saw your post and went to look out I’m easily over 2.5” and it’s dumping.

I went into town earlier to get pizza and noticed we were doing significantly better.  Still snowing at a good clip here. Hopefully the 4-6 will verify

Did y’all see the mesoscale discussion? https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0061.html

   Areas affected...Southern Appalachians and Vicinity

   Concerning...Heavy snow 

   Valid 070308Z - 070715Z

   SUMMARY...Heavy snow, with rates exceeding 1 in/hr, expected this
   evening over the southern Appalachians, perhaps changing to freezing
   rain in a few spots after 04z-05z.

   DISCUSSION...Recent mesoanalysis shows an amplifying mid-level
   short-wave trough approaching the region, with strong/broad
   southwesterly deep-layer flow and large-scale ascent occurring ahead
   of this system. Regional radar shows a broad precipitation shield
   that continues to expand and overspread the area. As low-levels of
   the atmosphere continue to saturate, surface temperatures have
   fallen several degrees in the past few hours, with areas in/near the
   higher terrain falling below freezing. Consequently, the
   precipitation type across eastern portions of the Carolinas has
   switched to snow, with some locations reporting moderate snow.

   As the amplifying short-wave continues its approach, several more
   hours of broad ascent and renewed precipitation development is
   expected. Presently, it appears frozen precipitation types should be
   confined to the higher terrain regions in proximity to the southern
   Appalachians. Snowfall rates near 1 in/hr can be expected initially.
   Forecast soundings indicate very strong low-level warm-air advection
   (50 kt flow in the 750-700 mb layer) that may result in a period of
   mixed precipitation. Should this occur, some locations could also
   experience freezing-rain rates near 0.06 in/3-hr after around

I'm sitting at 23.7° and my snow isn't wet. Huge, glittery flakes here.

Wow. I'm only at 27.2 here. It's definitely a 10:1, maybe 9:1 ratio. I'm getting a almost due east wind also though. That might have something to do with it.
