    March 8th Light Snow

    Measured 0.5" at 5:45pm when I got home, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, Fairfax County. Even accumulating on some sidewalks now (though not roads). I wasn't expecting anything (especially given the white rain I left in DC), so it was a nice surprise!

    March Banter 2019

    First winter back in the DC area and in my current townhouse (2013-2014), we had the pipe to the rear hose bib burst not once but twice, flooding our basement. (Long story short -- rear shutoff was mislabeled.) Inadequate insulation in our late-1980s construction, among other issues. On the plus side, we got an insurance-funded new basement floor and paint job. On the minus side, our homeowner premium went up right away.

    It's only pork that I won't crutch if I'm not on a timetable. I always crutch a brisket (in pink butcher paper preferably). Dizzy Pig is well worth a visit; in addition to Egg supplies they have a good assortment of specialty wood and I really like their rubs. I almost never make my own anymore. DizzyFest (the local Eggfest) is coming up the first weekend in May and is a great event (plus you get 10% off that day).

    Did you wrap when you hit the stall (i.e., Texas crutch), or did you do the whole thing unwrapped? I don't think it makes as big a difference with pork as it does with brisket, but I will usually crutch if I'm cooking to a fixed time. Btw, be sure to check out Dizzy Pig in Manassas for your Egg needs (if you haven't already).

    2/19-20 Winter Storm Observations

    You did slightly better with the sleet than I did -- only 0.8" here since I measured (and swept) with the sleet transition. Felt like rain when I was out. 1:05pm - 3.3" (2.5" snow, 0.8" sleet), SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, Fairfax County.

    February 10-12, 2019 Storm

    Measured 0.4" of snow/sleet mix at 11:45pm, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, FFX County. Wasn't paying close enough attention to know when it flipped to plain rain, so I probably lost a little bit.

    February 1, 2019 Clipper Snow

    Heavier bands all seemed to stay to the north. Picked up around another 1/8" in the afternoon. Looks like 0.8" is my storm total for SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, FFX County.

    Finally went out to measure at 12:45pm (home & under the weather) for my spotter report: 5/8" (0.6") in SSW Franconia/Kingstowne, a little less than I expected but still a really nice event.
