Surprise Snow

We had a hard snow in north GA. Friday and Saturday with many areas getting 8 inches or more. The local TV stations had been predicting between a dusting up to an inch or so but when it became apparent how bad it was getting the stations called it “an over achieving storm”. I guess that is their way of saying “we really screwed this one up”.

We had 12" here in the western NC mountains and it got down to the teens overnight. Not very good camping weather...

Meteorologist is the only profession where you can be wrong most of the time and keep your job!

The weather man predicted flurries. They weren't wrong... However, later that day, I called the radio station and told them that we had 6" of flurries on the roads.

During the 5:00 news /weather forecast they explained the difference between snow and flurries. Even though we ended up with more than 6" of the white stuff, technically it was was still flurries not snow.
