My prediction- Snowshoe comes in with a total of 13"
T-Line- 11"
CV- 10"
Me- 2"

THose are just some educated guesses I threw out. But I would not be suprised at all to see those amounts. If snowshoe doesnt get over 8", I will be astonished.

I arrived at Wisp at 3:00pm with fog and "warm" 40ish temps. Through the progression of the afternoon fog lifted, temperatures dropped to low 30's with sleet and then rain. Around 6:30pm while it was raining at the base of the mountain, it was snowing with gail force winds halfway up. It was a good dusting when I left around 8 with temps in Garrett Counting dropping to 29*F as I left Oakland. The wind and snow was kicking up, but nothing sticking to grassy areas or roadways.
