First Measurable Snow of Winter '09

20 posts in this topic

Much to my surprise (like last year around this time...), I got home this evening, and it began to snow! I thought it would just be a few flurries, but it turned out to be somewhat substantial in my area of Winston. I went out to take a drive in it towards South Winston where there was snowfall, but very little. Here are a few photos I got while I was in the car:

Oddly enough, it was 35 degrees, and the snow was sticking. Feel free to add any snow photos you may have gotten from other parts of the Triad! :)

There was no accumilation in Greensboro what so ever. It was a wierd snow track. Its like it was a donut and Greensboro was in the middle. Everywhere around Greensboro got between 1 and 3 inches of snow while the gate city got nothing. It kinda pissed me off because I wanted to come into work late LOL.

I agree, this snow storm track was wierd.. I was driving back to W-S from Hickory yesterday.. Hickory just had flurries, but after Statesville to Clemmons it was just pouring snow.

Then when I got home, practically nothing! :dontknow:

I don't think we've had a good snowfall since 2004 and my patience is wearing thin. :angry: But, we are about due so this year might be it. :)

I'm really pissed off that Alamance County didn't get anything. It started snow showering slightly right around 11:30, but then it just stopped, and that was it.

These are from what we got here a couple of weeks ago:

What do you guys think of the snow we're getting right now? I haven't seen this much snow since the Winter of 2004!

Here is a quick picture I took about an hour ago of my backyard in the snow. :cold:

I was at IKEA tonight in Charlotte and started to head home at around 7 (the worst possible time). I cannot tell you how many wrecks I saw on the way back. Normally it takes me about an hour to get back from Charlotte, but, tonight, it took over 2 hours. This was mostly because the snow was pouring down, and you couldn't see the road. There were times that it was so heavy that the caravan on 85 was only going 10 mph. Until they plow, please avoid the roads if you can.

Beautiful pics. Please, please take more snow pics, especially skyline and streetscape pics. Of course, I am buried up in DC right now.
