I've been so snow spoiled this year when compared to last.

I was at 4,000+ feet elevation today and it was pouring snow all morning. With all the wind it's difficult to estimate snowfall, but I'm guessing about 6". Now I'm back in Morgantown and expecting a quick inch with the cold front tonight.

Thus, I believe I have personally witnessed at least 15 times as much snowfall as I did last season. It's a bit unfair since the large majority of the snowfall I have witnessed this season was on a mountain rather than at home, but I'm still counting it smile.gif



I'm going to guess 4757(Snowshoe)

Terrible night for me lol. Roads were terrible. Who would have thought that the thinnest layer of ice would cause so many problems. So many accidents. Was out there for 3 and a half hours just to go a mile and a half and then ended up coming back to my moms anyway. Scary stuff out there. And the second accident Ive been in in less than a month.

Hope you are alright. It's a common misconception that big storms create more accidents

Yep, I always preach this to friends and family. Small snow accums crushes easily to icy and has less tracking overall. Plus, it is hard to be surprised by snows that are several inches on the road.

You are correct. They had somewhat less at the western base ~3200 ft, but above 4000 ft it was a solid 6". They picked up a couple more overnight with the cold front. I'm sure the skiing today was terrific, but also frigid.

Yes Im alright. I was sidelined due to spinning out and giving up on travel. But a guy came down the hill spun out and hit my car. I saw a lot of accidents while waiting there. This guy I had in my car from an accident that had already taken place. Let him charge his phone up and keep warm. His car was hit 3 more times while we were sitting there. It was madness for sure.

That thin layer of freezing rain that fell before the snow was the culprit. There was barely any snow on the street so it looked fine but all the streets were covered in a a sheen.
