Light snow in Boone for the past 2 hours or so. guess I'm working a full shift at the dealership even with 0 customers today so not getting to enjoy it at all. Hopefully i can get out and do some measurements this evening

I didn't think there was going to be much flow after this storm but apparently there will be some. From GSP....

......

Meanwhile...in the wake of the upper low, we should
transition to a brief period of NW flow snow potential along the
TN border through late tonight that could allow for another 1-3
inches of snow in some spots.

 

It also looks like they're concerned that their warning was justified.......

......

Given that we have not yet reached our
Winter Storm criteria in some of the mountain counties, keeping the
Warning in effect along the TN border affords us the opportunity to
add to our snowfall total and reach our 24 hour warning criteria,
thus verifying our Warning in those zones. At any rate, with the
ongoing light snow near the TN border, a public impact will remain
to anyone traveling on untreated roads, which further justifies
keeping the Warning in effect there.

Still going up here with the nwf, albeit not huge flakes. Up to 5.5" now which puts me at 36" on the season.

How much did you have last season total?

I figure if I had measured every hour as is official, it was probably close to a 4 inch total here that is now 2” of compacted paste.  10”+ season total thus far with three 3”+ events and another dusting, already matched last season.

I ended up with about 4 here and 90% percent of that came last night. Pretty much zeroed out today. A little dusting tonight so far.

A nice little event but I'm like the dude that's deer hunted all his life and now just trophy hunts. He'll let the 4 and 6 pointers walk while waiting on the monster. It's elusive but it'll come by one day. Hopefully this winter.

I will gladly take a spike at this point

Thanks for letting me join in on the fun over the past few days. I appreciate your kindness. 
 

Leaving Cashiers in the morning to head back to Atlanta. 
 

I’m sure I’ll be back up sooner than later. Cheers y’all!

I'll have a few more photos later once I have time to edit them but made it to the Viaduct and Boone Fork after work yesterday. Here's one of the shots. Absolutely beautiful snow. Probably the most annoying to hike in too because it was so wet. Came back home soaked. e340c384ddebab95823d7f97dff365ab.jpg

Went to bed last with light snow falling and sure enough, another quarter inch or so is added to my total. Diamond dust still falling this morning while walking the dog. What melted on the trees yesterday is not coated again with powder. Looks like another possibility for the Mountains Monday afternoon into early Tuesday. Probably nothing more than a couple of inches, but I am near my last winter snow total and it's only January 9th.
