Just in case you missed it this weekend... we did have some snow, sleet, and of course rain. I didn't see much of anything through my travels around the mountains. That included a back and forth trip from Hazard to Pikeville and up into Grapevine and then back to Hazard. Though now that I think about it... I believe I ran into more rain than anything.
That wasn't the case for some in Leslie & Harlan Counties. I received some photos from both areas that suggest it was mainly snow that came falling from the sky. Check these viewer photos out!
This was submitted by Mark Miles from Cumberland. I'm not sure which part of the mountain he is on here, but you can see off and the distance some trees that aren't covered at all. Just showing you how a few hundred feet can make all the difference in the world.
This is my favorite picture sent by Mark Miles. You can really see how the snow accumulated on some on the ground. Just simply judging by this picture I'd say around one inch accumulated. That's just a guess!
Slick roads?!?!? I'd say these roads where interesting to say the very least. Mark Miles thank you very much.
This was sent in by Michelle Walker in Confluence. Not Quite as much accumulation as high atop Black Mountain, but enough to make here little girl Brooklyn ask when she could get out and play in the snow. Unfortunately, Brooklyn this isn't a big enough snow to get all the play you and I are looking for. Just remember... we've got plenty of winter left.
Thanks for your pictures guys! Or Should I say "Images" my college CIS professor always said that after they were put on a computer they were no longer photos. They were now digital images! So I guess I should say... thanks for your Images :)
A little round of the wintry stuff is pulling out of the region. Though at last check it was trying its best to cover the cars and some other solid surfaces. After the sun went down the real chill settled in and so did the light snow. This has allowed the snow to try to stick to some of the surfaces. So don't be shocked if you see some light accumulations on certain surfaces.
This energy will be gone soon and all we have to deal with after that is the COLD!!!!! Temps will struggle for a couple of days before warming up to the "balmy" upper 40s by the weekend.
As always I appreciate all of you for reading this old blog. This will soon be our second winter together so that may mean some wild predictions or some strong disagreements. I can't wait for forecasts like this!
