    On our second or third. First was a week ago - was 3-4 inches, latest was two days ago - about an inch. More predicted next week. Snow, melt, repeat...

    We had about 3 times where it came then melted. Ground surface froze in past week so next snow should stay til March.

    I'm just above Raleigh NC, in the northern tip of what I call the "no snow belt" this imaginary "belt" runs from Henderson, NC down into northern Georgia, a band approximately 60-100 miles wide, paralleling the foothills of the Blue Ridge mts and also known as the "piedmont." We just get less snow than surrounding areas. Every few years we will get 4" or over, other years ranges from a dusting to 1" - 3" some years don't get 5" if you add all the snow together. Once every 20 years we might get 8" or so.

    On our 3rd-ish. We skipped the wet November and went right into deep freeze, it has been unusually cold (10-20F) here and won't snow at those temps. Gun Club has already been closed a few times when the trap machines get too cold. Cold? Hey, I don't have to shovel cold, so I'm okay with that.

    Our annual inch of snow that lasts a couple of hours isn't due until sometime in January.

    2 weeks before Thanksgiving we had 5-6 inches. Melted off and it has been warm since.

    We've had several snows so far. Biggest was a foot deep and lasted almost two weeks. If it's going to be cold I want snow, otherwise everything looks brown, dead and depressing.

    We have got 3 storms since mid November, and along the front range foothills where I live each has left us 4 to 6 inches each time. Yesterday 3 days after last one we had 56 and warm winds. Only snow left is on the north side of house where there is still 12 inches piled along the front porch on the lawn. Low temp this week on Wed @ 5 over night, today's high 61. Must be Colorado!

    The last snow in My home town was Dec. 7,2009, temp. that day was 35 degrees so no snow stayed on the ground for very long. It rarely snows here !

    Good Shooting

    Ft Benning, GA got 14" of snow on Feb of 73. Shut ft Benning for 3 days. They just didn't know how to handle all that snow. Being from Michigan, the snow didn't slow me down. I drove around all 3 days, taking pictures. The Airborne students were posted at every major intersection, in case other drivers got stuck.

    Better not snow....my snow blower is still in the shop. Has been for a month now.
    "...we can't get parts"...."we don't have enough help".....
    The world is falling apart.
    In NH, we don't really consider a "snowstorm" unless it is a foot or more.
    Everything else is just a dusting.

    We have had two days above freezing since Nov 10th. The snow has been blown around and isn't to bad. Many of us are hoping for a winter that sends the out of staters back where they came from.

    We are getting our second batch today. The first was about 3 inches, this should be about the same.
