They are lowering our forecast snow also. From 6-12 down to about 1-3 qt this point. All according to how it does finally track.... we might miss the moisture for the most part. Southwestern Va and the mountains of NC are supposed to get the brunt of it. Hope it doesn't get too bad for those south of us.

It snowed a very light skiff this morning. I snowed about an inch last Saturday that is still with us in the shady places. Yesterday I ran the quad up to big rock just to look at tracks and see what wildlife is moving. Big rock is about 250-300 feet elevation higher than the house. There was 5 inches of snow there. The road goes straight up from there gaining about 1,500-1,700 feet elevation real quick. The forecast is a chance of snow almost every day for the next week or more.

We have about 2 inches so far and coming down in very fine flakes. No wind which is good. Roads and fields covered now. 29* at present. Supposed to snow most all day, but we will get out of it long before the southern part of the state. Got things pretty well prepared yesterday so am good if we don't lose the power. Still saying only 2-5 here, but those in southern and southwest 6-18....

We have right at 10" right now and it's still coming down. Went and checked cows and had 2 calfs born sometime from yesterday at lunch and this morning. They seem to be ok. I unroll a roll of hay so the would have somewhere to lay but it's probably covered in snow already.

I am glad it missed us. It went about 80 miles south of here as it was headed your way. I suspect the Users in Virginia got a good dump.
