When I got up at 6:00, there was enough snow on the decks to make them hazardous. It’s a dry, grapple-like snow, with the temperature 30.4 at Merciers. It’s not sticking on the ground where we are, at least yet. The forecast is for a possible accumulation of a half inch, with more at the higher elevations. The weather service says that two to four inches are possible in the higher elevations of Murray, Gilmer, and Fannin.
At 9:00 AM, the snow has mostly stopped where we are, two miles southeast of Mineral Bluff. I doubt it’s over, however. High winds are also forecast, with gusts to 40 miles per hour possible.
