You just know this is a cold air mass whenever you see the arctic haze in the morning and there isn't a cloud in the sky. But this isn't even the coldest we will get this week. Wait until this weekend.  
Thomas, we're friends but you gotta stop talking like that. Lol

After this weekend, it's going to be a quiet few weeks on here... Glad that some of you scored some snow out of this pattern. But, yikes. I'm not looking forwards to 60s in January after getting blanked. 

This was always supposed to happen. Just a relaxation then reload into February.

Doesn't mean I have to like it though haha. Would have been easier to stomach with a dusting on the ground right now.

@Bucketheadand @MotoWeatherman, what was yalls final number?

Sadly I was not there for this event but my son was there getting measurements.  All he told me before he left today was more than a foot which looks right.  Here is a current pic of the table he used to measure.  

View in the background is sugar mtn just to the left of that right side tree and then grandfather mtn to the left of sugar.
