because it's freezing in the mountains and I'm not leaving this chair until Spring comes ~ chuckle.  We had a windchill factor of -12 below zero last night and already had a 7in snow last month when they only predicted 1-2 inches

Somehow the frozen water in the outside dog bowl just doesn't communicate the same sort of cold as your water fall photo.

SO, okay I now have more than my 'dusting' forecasted for Chatham Co. Hope they didn't miss the mark again like did in 2000 and got around 20 inch 'dusting' :o

Post by: wolfpat on January 03, 2018, 08:51:52 PM
I have about three inches here. The roads were far worse than the numbers would suggest. It has been so cold that there's no road slush like there usually is at the start of a winter storm.

And if I ain't mistaken, tomorrow night, even salted roads will freeze.

  As far as I'm concerned as long as everybody is safe at home this too shall pass.  Lots of firewood for the fire place wood for the stove and hot chocolate and I'm good with this.

 :o that's a lot of snow for a predicted dusting, have the schools closed for tomorrow?

Yup, I just checked, Chatham, Orange and Wake Co schools are closed for tomorrow 1/4/18 due to weather conditions

I measured 6 inches of powdery snow on my porch this morning. Quite the dusting! I walked up to the paved road and there is no sign of pavement as of noon today. The wind is blowing the snow off the trees and it is like mini snow storms. Grateful for the wind blowing the snow off the trees to help keep the branches from snapping once the temps drop. This weather report comes from near the Goldston area.

Buy stock in area auto body shops ;D Chatham 911 FB has some photos posted that will give folks idea of what it looked like out and about this morn. Dare say the side roads STILL look the same.

Glad they do that as for sure no TV stations cover Chatham Co. You can see what's going on in ski Roxboro, Fayetteville, Johnston Co., Raleigh, Durham but it's like Chatham doesn't exist!

   In this sort of thing I worry about the guys with the 4x4s that think that getting going is the same as stopping and it's not.

At least 4 in. of 'dusting' so far ;D I'm wanting a light wind to come in to shake some of this stuff off trees. Already had some lights blinking. Sure hope they don't miss the mark on temps to soon follow to get rid of this stuff. Going to seize up tonight with temps in teens though.

Due to reported weather-related power outages in some areas of the county and temperatures predicted to be in the teens tonight, Chatham County will open a shelter for residents who need a warm place to stay this evening. The Chatham County Council on Aging’s Eastern Senior Center in Pittsboro will open at 5 PM tonight to receive people. The center is located at 365 NC 87, Pittsboro, just north of the roundabout.
Residents are encouraged to call 919-545-8164 in advance to let staff know you are coming. Be advised that travel on roads is very hazardous, so keep that in mind when deciding to use the shelter. If you come, please bring food, water, medications, toiletries and other important personal items. Pets are not allowed at this shelter.
The wet snow has accumulated on power lines and tree limbs, which triggered some power outages. This problem should be temporary as snow melts or falls off surfaces and power companies are able to restore power.

Back roads ice covered. West bound 64 is for the most part clear, Eastbound has a lot of icy spots.

Reminder, STAY OFF BRAKES ON ICE, use gears and friction to slow down. Drift over ice, do not accelerate if you do accelerate touch the gas lightly. Also, do not go super slow, you need momentum on hills and you will cause those behind you to loose momentum.

Lastly, if you are scared, stay off the roads.
