Was this great or what ? Some would say what. I’ll tell ya, from my standpoint being in west central GA., it was great. Here at the homestead I ended up with between a half to three quarters of an inch of sleet, freezing rain mix. No snow.
The winter of 2010/2011 will be one I remember and reflect on for many years. And it’s not even half over. Matter fact, were not even a month into winter.
Generally I don’t see any winter precipitation until February or March, if at all. I cant wait to see what the rest of this winter brings to the deep south. Still waiting for a history making snowfall. Maybe I’ll get it this season ?
Here’s ice on the muscadine vine looking towards the back 40, taken around 4 PM EST today.
Here’s a couple more form around the homestead.
Current obs: Sleet, Ice, covering much of the area. Watching for freezing drizzle/fog tonight.
