Snow is INCOMING for the Southern Mountains. Snow will spread over the entire state this weekend with up to a 18″ of snow falling.

I don’t know about you but when we crossed over into a New Year, I was very hopeful that our weather would miraculously shift and become better. Unfortunately, the drought, above-average temperatures and overall bad place that we are in weather-wise, has not changed.
