Default Did it snow (accumulating) in the area this weekend?

I was wondering if there was an accumulating snow anywhere down there this past weekend with that snow storm. My family in Anderson didnt get any, but on the snow map, it shows a decent amount of snow between Greenville and Charlotte, so I was wondering.

Thanks.

The further north on I-85 you travelled, the more snow/sleet accumulation you saw. There was a bit of accumulation in the foothills and mountains (they looked great on the horizon today in the sun), but none in Greenville proper. Spartanburg proper had a fair amount of sleet accumulation (it was pouring heavily), but fortunately not enough to seriously affect the roads.

The transition between some very minor slush (here in Greenville) and a winter wonderland was dramatic. Just one county to the north (Henderson) received 9 inches of snow. Of course, Hendersonville lies more than 2100 feet in elevation.

Yeah, the rain snow line was just a little to far north on this one; 20 or 30 miles. We got about a half inch of sleet and freezing rain at my house in Taylors. But I went up to Ceasar's head yesterday and they got about 6 inches there. Also went on to Brevard and they had big snow in town, around 9 inches I think, and I talked to a lady who had gotten 15 at her house. Yeah we were really on the wrong side of the line with this one, it could have been a really nice snowfall.

Yeah, when we come to visit relatives in South Carolina we go down through Travelers Rest and when we are on that 4-lane, we cross into South Carolina, then go down that long grade... its like another world. I know in the fall, all of the leaves on the SC side of the line were still green, but as soon as you crossed into NC, they had changed alot.

Well, we had 5 inches of snow here at my house in northeast Tennessee, but here too, its a fine line of change. Not to far to our north and east, some areas had 8-12 inches of snow, while places only about 35-40 miles to our southwest only had rain.

Usually we are on the rain side of the storm, but not this time.

Thanks for the replies.

That's one reason I love living near the mountains instead of in them. They're still dealing with black ice on roads just a short drive away to the north.

Yeah, alot of southernerns love the snow and thats how it is here, because we really dont get that much, but the snow like we had last week was destructive. We had alot of damage to pine trees and my Southern Magnolia suffered heavy damage and we had 5 inches of snow... about 15 miles north and northeast of here, some people had 12-14 inches and was without power for days. We were lucky. Snows like that are not common around here.

Well, most of its gone now... it dont stick around too long here in the south... looking for a rainy Christmas now.
