With nearly half a million subscribers, Jim Zimmerman (Jim Zim on YouTube) may be the most popular YouTuber in the Tri-Cities. He loves to produce videos of his amazing model trains that seem to go for miles, his cruise ship vacations with spectacular views and luxurious onboard rooms, and other interesting things many of which have to do with the Tri-Cities.

We just hit the first day of fall yesterday, and the summer of 2021 is now in the books. It won't be long before the snow flies in the Tri-Cities area, but the question is: will it be one of those harsh winters or just a skiff of snow here in there?

In his latest video production, he looks back at last winter, and it turns out our first snowfall was on December 13th with no real accumulation. The very next day was quite beautiful in the Tri-Cities with a high of 51. Do you remember Christmas Day? We got a quarter-inch of snow that day and a low of 26 degrees. Another light dusting came on December 30th. Then we got about a half-inch of snow on January 25th. Then we got our largest snowstorm of the season starting February 12th. A couple of days later we were up to 7 in of snow, and then a little over 10 inches a couple of days later as you might recall! It's all here in this 85-second video posted below. Thanks, Jim!

The weather is not always something to be enjoyed, though. Take a peek at some of the ways it can cost millions of dollars below.
