Great vid of the snow storm overnight March 5 in case folks (most people) slept through it.

Still no grass showing in my yard, only place is right next to my porch about a foot out that has melted to the ground.  Still about 5 inches in my yard.  ::snowman::

I ended up with a total of about 1/2" of sleet on top of 0.2" freezing rain, and just a trace of snow.  Not exactly a hit in my neck of the woods, but I'm glad to see BNA get rid of that "dome" and many of you end up with something to remember.
Thank you!


Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

If you like looking at "lots" of pics. Here is Dyer County.
If it ask you to register just put in a name. It is only a registry to keep up with views.

Via NWS Memphis...

Since 1928, this is only the 2nd time that Memphis has had 1" of snow on the ground for 3 or more consecutive days in March.

Yup.  This stuff had some serious staying power.  Kind of sad to see it melt away.

It's always amazing to see the way that individual bands can affect totals over such small areas. Shelby County had a pretty decent gradient that wasn't reported very well. I regret that I didn't get a chance to send in a report during the event. But Collierville and southeastern areas of Germantown only received around 2.5 sleet+snow. Whereas areas just as close as Midtown to Cordova were near 5. We forget sometimes that it's those little bands that will make or break you. This was a fun system to track from SWAD all the way through the event! Thanks to everyone who provided such great information.

I think one of the things that enhanced the totals in the Downtown-Cordova corridor was the changeover was perfectly timed to that insane initial band of 40-45 dbz that was over those areas. I never measured but I would legitimately guess rates were about 2"/hr...and it dumped about an inch in 30 minutes before moving NE. Areas further southeast saw a later changeover and missed those heavier returns as they had already moved through. As you say...those bands can make or break you.

Otherwise, I completely agree. It was a very fun system to track...to me at least it felt like a huge sigh of relief to finally get a legitimate winter storm that included heavy snow after years of disappointment. Finally a system most of the membership was able to seriously enjoy every step of the way without feeling like time and effort was wasted.
