Pics or it did not happen…

Well I do not have pictures… so if you live by that philosophy, then this is gonna be a disappointment to you. Sorry.
Your just gonna have to take my word for it.
I’m not one to post crazy frivolous threads… just look at my history…
But with that being said…

Yes… Just as the title states…
I saw snow in South Eastern Kentucky
It started off raining a fine mist…
Then into sleet, Ice/Rain mix
Then slowly turned into a fine powder snow…
It was very visible
And the wind was easily able to carry the fine snow in sheets.
The visibility dropped signfically with a “slight” whiteout condition…



This lasted shortly then returned to semi normal…
With the occasional flurry falling…
Or fine powder snow “fit”

Now I’m not talking about an epic snow storm…
But it DID snow… Earliest I ever seen it… in my 26 years…
This happened 9-6-11 around 2pm EST South East Kentucky

Sunday it was 106 degrees F here... then Monday it was 62degrees F
When I saw the snow it was 60 Degrees F
Kinda warm for snow, eh?


My wife seen this as well…
I realize I have no “proof”
But this is something for you to digest.


I know what I saw

OY! I believe you! I know we went from mid 80's a few days ago, to currently 63 degrees, in south west VA...I have been cold the past couple days. It is mighty early for snow flurries! I hope that is not an indication of an early winter, or a bad winter.

Maybe it was ash from a fire or a volcanic vent somewhere but if it melted then yea could be.

Good guess,
but it melted...
when the wind blew it was freaking freezing, felt like January instead of September!

I can believe that, because dude, it's like 56 degrees out here. If it gets any colder out here we'll turn on the heat.

Now you have me curious, what have you seen? Up until the tropical storm blowing through the past couple days, I have not seen much in the mountains in south west VA to indicate a bad winter....I HATE winter!

I believe you.
Just north of you ,and it went from being 100 degrees one day to 60 degrees the next.
Summer ended abruptly,fall is here.
It probably has something to do with the center of that low pressure system that was Lee sucking some cold air down to you..
I'm with you,we had a long hot,dry summer and I think it's going to be a long cold wet winter.
The squirrels are scrambling where I'm at.

I don't know what to believe. I know that snow in 60 just isn't happening though.

I am here in Kentucky as well, around lake Cumberland. I'm not saying that you didn't see snow but I am only about an hour from the KY TN VA border about as south east as you can get and I haven't seen any snow just alot of slow rain.

I hate winter too!

As far as "nasty" weather goes this is the first...
But 2 week ago I was standing half in the shade, half in the sun
The sun side of me was burning hot!
The shade side was freezing!

The wind here on occasion since then has a chill to it... it rattles your bones...
Labor day weekend was HOT!
But the weekend before it was cold.

I've noticed a few things such as the birds migrating, usually Canadian geese don't come through here until November... they were here 3 days ago...

But i've noticed a little pattern the last few years, and it all points to this year being a rough one.

I live in roughly that area and I didn't see snow.
Don't take that the wrong way. I'm not saying I don't believe you. The weather has always been insane around here. I'm just jealous because I didn't get to see it, LOL! I'm loving the "jacket weather" but missed the snow. Bummer.

ETA: Oh, I just remember something! When I was little, I remember getting heavy snow that covered the ground in April once. That isn't so strange in itself, but it was 50 degrees and I was outside playing. Within ten minutes the ground was covered. Of course the temp dropped immediately when the snow started, but it was strange. Strange weather here.

Had I not been outside at that time
or been looking towards a black barn... which gave a nice backdrop to see it...
I wouldnt have noticed it at first, I would have just kept working
cos I wouldnt have been expecting to see it
but after I noticed it, i stopped and watched a little while

Its kind of interesting to know how many people from Kentucky are on this site. I lived in Middlesboro a couple of years ago and I do remember it snowing in mid to late September. Living in the mountains the weather could go from being under a tornado watch to waking up with snow. So I am not disputing with you at all.

I've heard my grandma tell of a time that her grandmother swept snow off the porch in July. I have no idea what year that would have been but I'm guessing that it was probably around the turn of the century. She said the winter that followed was absolutely horrible. I'll have to ask her about it see if she can give me a guesstimate of the year. Would be interesting to see if it corresponds with a record bad winter.

There really are quite a few Kentuckians around here! I was talking to someone on here once and came to realize that I knew them in real life! That really surprised me! It is good to see so many of us though. Makes me feel a little bit more at home around here, lol.

Craziest weather does exist here
I've watched it rain on one side of a tree
and the sun be shining on the other
and it stay like that until the rain is over.

Wish I had that on film for youtube ! lol

I remember one year prolly 5 years ago?
that I saw honey bees in December, Cos we had several really warm days
so crazy!

Please ask her

Cos i'm kinda believing that we follow some sort of weather cycle
that about 111 years...

I would love to know!

My folks tell stories about how in the 40's-60's that they drove on the rivers instead of the roads...
cos they were frozen over and in better shape than the roads...

Try that now and you'll get wet lol
