Hey folks, Allyson here. I ran into Jim Renfro, the Air Quality Specialist for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and he told me he had some cool data he thought you might enjoy. Jim keeps up with all kinds of weather data for the park. He sent this to me and I thought I would pass it along.
"Snowfall for this past December measured 53 inches (looks like a record). So, the 2009-2010 (Dec, 2009 - Mar, 2010) snowfall was a record (138.5"- over double the average); Feb,2010 was a record (52"); and Dec, 2010 was a record (53"-only 34" last December, 2009). So, off to a snowy start this winter." - Jim Renfro
