    Cool It's the Big One, Elizabeth! Grab your woolies or bail out!

    Ray is predicting 18-24 inches of snow in the mountains.

    http://www.booneweather.com/Forecast/Boone

    Wednesday's little snow event was well-behaved and went almost exactly according to plan--an inch or so on the far eastern edge of the Appalachians to 4" at higher elevations on the west edge. Today, we get a break giving us time to prep for the next event that's much harder to forecast and MUCH bigger. Most of our region will need more than a ruler to measure this one. Here's our Snow Accumulation Forecast graphic for the Big Event. Snow begins after midnight tonight and lasts through Saturday evening. The heaviest snow falls Friday. A brief period of "wintry mix" is still possible Friday.
    Take cover up there in the high country. Be warm. Be safe.

    Too many snowstorm threads, don't know which one to post in.
    Here in the Knoxville area, forecasts were all over the place, 1-3", 4-7", 3-5". Well, it's 24 at 6 am, and while there may be more flurries as the day progresses, we've got barely an inch of new snow over remnants of hard crusty slush. Underwhelming. I feel bad for those dealing with serious weather, but I was hoping for enough to play in.

    Same here. They were predicting upwards of 5 inches for us. So far, just a dusting. Go east or south, and they got way more. Heck, even my son in Spartanburg SC got more winter weather crap than we did and we are "in the mountains". This one was one weird and fickle storm.

    You must be way south of me. Here in the western suburbs of Richmond we have 8 inches and still snowing hard.

    About 3pm CST the weather channel claimed 30" for a location in West Virginia. I missed the exact location.
    Has anyone heard reliable conditions for Roan Mountain, Grayson Highlands, Mt Rogers, etc.? Snowfall, winds, temperatures?
    Thanks for any news or links to reported conditions.
    My grand children had a ball on their saucers in Boone.

    Over 30" in places between DC and SNP. Luray is reporting 19" and counting. The wind has been awful all day and the blowing snow is creating a lot of visibility problems. Wind chills near zero.

    There was one on our local news that listed 40" - Gray something, but I forget what or which state it was in.

    Why...people who can't cook, of course! And they probably burn even that.... In in Reading, Pa., and I've ben too busy shoveling all day to worry about cooking. I don't know the "official" measurement, but I haven't seen this much snow since that mess in January in the 90's.

    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass - it's about learning how to dance in the rain!

    I know thats not a real TRex, they don't train all that easily and tend to lift their tail and spray their territory a lot. Nasty things.
