As a frequent observer and major fan of this site I’ll add my opinion. To preface first and foremost I love snow as much as anyone on this site, borderline obsessed. Especially with the chase, which we do in the southeast most winters and for some most of our lives, only to usually be disappointed. I know how frustrating it is to await and be either elated or disturbed by each model run. However, for those of us btw the Upstate of SC and Charlotte we have two great historical patterns on our side. We saw some cold temps in Nov&Dec but no snow. That is a great thing for snow lovers in our area historically speaking. We have a better chance of seeing heavier and more frequent snow events Jan-Mar in this region after a warm and relatively parched Nov&Dec.
Lastly, I’m old enough to mention folk lore, old wive’s tales, aching bones, etc. Having a Met degree, even sometimes I rely on a few of these more than science. That said, last night when thunder awoke me several times in Charlotte first thought was Game On. Not necessarily next week for Charlotte Metro, but Winter has just begun my friends.
I’m about to stock the cabinet with Bourbon and look forward to the pattern change. It will, just hopefully in mby and yours too. Keep up the good work you overly zealous snow cravers, I LOVE your passion!!

D+...I saw snow 3 times and was able to travel to the mountains to see some good snow a couple times. This winter lacked a good cold snap and solid accumulating snow

F - I saw snow fall for about a total of maybe 2hrs in two separate events and it literally didn’t amount to anything, other than a wet ground and brown, muddy grass. Kinda sad November was the worst of the cold and that’s a fall month, not winter.

The snow last month made it a C for me. Could of been much better if it stuck around long enough to enjoy it. Plus this miserable rainy pattern really makes me look forward to any sunny days coming up.

You live in the purgatory known as SC, saw snowfall 3 times and give it a D+? Am I missing something here? 😏

D. The cold in November and the snow last month helped pull this above an F. Really bad winter as far as snow/cold overall though, I wasnt mad about the rain especially after the flash drought. So the last 3 winters have gone A/B, F, D. We are due?

Shane, why did you go with F for last winter? Didn't you get rocked the beginning of December 2018? We got hit here also in Arkansas. Last winter was way better than this winter
