Quote from: Solar on December 05, 2017, 01:24:15 AMYeah, we got hit hard with the same winds they got later. Since I live tucked down in the forest, I seldom see 12 Mph winds, yesterday they hit the house 30 Mph plus, so I can only imagine they were at least 70Mph above ground.Their winds should die down tonight. This is a problem for that area, they won't cut down the brush in the hills, they claim it destroys the environment. So out of control fires don't count as destroying the environment?
Quote from: walkstall on December 05, 2017, 09:59:05 PMIn one week we have gone from night time low's of 50º down to around 25º night time. Don't look for snow until the week before Christmas I could be wrong I was last year. Two stage snow thrower has been check out to go out the door when needed/if. The two portable generators are check out and set to go if needed. The most the power has been out in the winter was for 1hr. and that was a planed outage two week ahead. From the looks of the land around it will be a cold winter like last year. Around about the same amount of snow.

Will be in the house for a couple of days as our neighborhood is third priority for the DOT to scrape the roads. All public roads in NC are "state" roads.
Quote from: Solar on December 08, 2017, 10:47:23 PMI saw this on the satellite, the same system causing the Santa Ana Fires down South, also brought snow to Houston.My daughter in law just sent pics yesterday. How freakin unusual, and for me out in Ca, we're experiencing sunny warm days, when we should be getting hit with storms and cold rain.I guess, if anything, enjoy it? I mean, what else can you do, it's not often God drops that much in the area, is it?
Quote from: supsalemgr on December 08, 2017, 11:16:21 PMThis is our first measurable snowfall of the season. We usually get two or three a year. However, 10" is out of the ordinary. It was the perfect storm with plenty of gulf moisture from the southwest meeting the cold air from the north.
Quote from: Solar on December 09, 2017, 12:26:01 AMTrue, it's really not normal from year to year.But in truth, this is normal on the "Big Cycle Of Events".Just like Ca and its regular drought/flood cycle, we cycle roughly every 10 to 18 years drought to flood.North Carolina cycles much in the same way, with heavy snows on roughly a twenty year cycle.Snowstorm Amount3 @ 12"2/11/1973 12.512/24/1989 15.3And today with more than 10", but if you ask a lib, it's proof of AGW. I kid you not, I've already seen these morons posting that these snows are proof that man is destroying the climate, in spite of the data proving it's actually normal weather.I, myself, am expecting record snowfall this year out West, as it's been 20 years plus since our last record snow event, which is always followed by record wet, and next year will more than likely bring freezing record temps, which at the time they claimed was a 100 year event, but records showed otherwise.

Quote from: supsalemgr on December 09, 2017, 01:27:28 AMI try not to use the word "normal" when discussing weather. "Average" is a much better word to use in my view. With peaks of the Appalachians being west of us we do not receive a great deal of precipitation from the NW as the mountains wring out much of the moisture as it moves eastward. Our moisture has to come from the south and moves in east of the mountains.
