I know you guys up North laugh at us Southerners, but we rarely get snow here in Middle TN, however 2 days ago we got 6" at my house and my friend across town got 9" in one night. Flurries were forecasted.

It had been 78 on Christmas day and new years day was still very warm,
low 50's I believe. The day after N Y the temp dropped, but usually the ground it too warm for snow to stick. On this occasion it started raining then it turned to sleet in late evening, and that night we got blasted with our late white New Years treat.

We have snow forecasted again for Thursday. We still have about 4" on the ground this morning. Whatta-feast for the eyes. Natures show warms my heart.

Edited to add; I have lived in this town since 1968 and this is the most snow, falling in one night, that I have ever witnessed here. It is a big deal for us.

Enjoy the beauty! I have lived in snow regions all of my life and I still love to see it.

Here in NW Pennsylvania we usually have a decent snow pack going into January. So far this year, nothing. My wife told me this would happen while I was prepping my tractor for snow removal back in early November. Mission accomplished.

It is snowing like crazy again on Thursday. Forecasted to be 2-5" before nightfall. Suppose to snow all day. Already got 1" on the ground in 30 minutes. I love it!

Ended up getting 5 1/2" new snow in all today. Forecasted for 14 tonight and, "possibly 10 tomorrow night. It is 25 now. This is so unusual for us southerners. We have had 11 1/2" of snow in the last 2 days.

And out in Utah the mountains are getting the snow (best powder on earth) great for skiers, we had rain all day New Years but mostly a mist. Last time where I live had lots of snow was in 1989 and we got 3 foot of snow in one night. Happened on a Saturday night Sunday Morning. canceled church and spent most of the day removing snow off of trailers in our area, one had its roof collapse. Came home tired a bit wet and felt we had served our fellow man. Last 10 years we seldom get more than 6 inches yet 5 miles in either direction they get 2 feet. Just a fluke in how the weather patterns around our area.
I love the snow makes the area feel clean and reborn. Stay safe most people don't know how to drive in snow.

Minus 2 this morning with a couple inches of snow on the ground. Son in law cleaned the drive yesterday. Iam getting too old for winter work now. Well, I could but what the heck I'll just stay in where it is warm. Use to love Michigan winters now I just live through them.
God Bless
