I have received at least 7 inches here in Alabaster today. This is one of the best storms I can remember. After years of missing snow showers, we hit hit the jackpot!

WSBTV says some places right NW of Atlanta already have 6-9 inches on the ground. Is that true or did they make a mistake? I would say we have 3-4 inches here right NW of the city.
I've seen pictures of 6" measurements west of Atlanta.

When you guys measure, are you measuring off a car? Or do you actually measure in the grass? I find some areas are deeper than others.
I measure off an exposed deck rail. You are always supposed to measure off a hard surface away from drifts.

I measure from a piece of plywood I put in an open area of the yard.

Gotta say, love that we had early snowfall for so many in our Central and southern countries that rarely see the fluffy goodness. I was skeptical a few days ago. The models nailed this, especially for North Alabama.
We got exactly what was predicted!

I wish Talkweather was how it used to be. This place would be going crazy over what just happened. It looks like some areas right NW of atlanta got near a foot of snow!! It's sad how slow and inactive talkweather has become :(
It takes a while for a forum like this to get back going.

I got 7 inches total here in Anniston, and some areas east of here got around 10 inches. Looks like this will be the biggest storm we have seen since the blizzard of 1993.

Cannot emphasize how historic this snowfall has been, both spatially and quantity. Multiple inches of snow from Coastal Texas to Florida up into the Deep South. One for the record books.

Atlanta is getting pounded right now by a heavy band

I missed that heavy snow band! I woke up at like 4:45 am and looked out the window to see melting snow. I was like "oh, it's over." LOL....I woke up again at like 8:50 am and couldn't believe it when I looked out the window. There was clearly several more inches on the ground. I measured here 7-8 inches at 2 pm today. I cannot believe how awesome this storm was!
