Snow photos from North Cullman County, Alabama

We received more snow than I expected here in North Cullman County. We have been in a snow "drought" here since 1993 when my oldest son was born. Everyone seemed to enjoy today's snow which was beautiful and caused no problems. I measured an average of 1.5" here in Vinemont. My elevation is a little over 900'.

We had maybe 0.25" here at the house. North Hazel Green is the only place I saw any accumulation between MSFC and here.

Hi Sharp...Yeah, after sunset dry air moved in quickly and the upper atmosphere seemed to warm. As a result the precip tapered off rapidly and turned into drizzle/freezing drizzle. It really hasn't warmed up at the surface though. Just before midnight it is still 32.5 here.

Awesome pictures of the snow Mike! I'm glad you got a taste of the white stuff, though I still struggle to understand everyone's obsession with snow. I'm tired of driving on icy and snow-covered roads. (Add in that Wisconsin is 3rd highest State for deer-car collisions)

I saw an email the other day of a guy up here hoping for a 'Green Christmas'... now that would be wonderful! I spent the previous two Christmases in tropical Africa, I could definitely get used to green in December.

Thanks Dew and Nathan. Nathan, we must look downright silly here in Alabama. I can't help it though. I guess it's just a matter of perspective. The grass is always greener (or whiter) on the other side!
