Took a 30 minute drive in the Wrangler up to the Cosby area of the Smokies to see some real snowfall (compared to my inch).  I'd say around 4-5 inches fell in most areas I drove through.

My oldest brother lives in Dallas GA which is a little sw of ATL. He has a horse farm there and he had over a ft off snow.  He has no power and said it looked like a war zone there with trees down and tree limbs every where. He is not a snow lover like his siblings. Lol

I can understand the tree damage.  This was a very wet snow--falling at temps right at or slightly above freezing.  I only had an inch here, but that little bit had the smaller pine trees in the yard all bent sideways. It wouldn't take much of this brand of snow to break or uproot shallow rooted trees like pines. 

A similar snow occured in 1998 on the Plateau and in southeast Kentucky.  Well over a foot of heavy, wet snow fell, and it was as bad as any ice storm.  Pine trees were down everywhere, and we didn't have power for nearly two days.
