  1. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    03/21/18: 3.6" End of Season Total: 8.0" (This is probably a little low, since I know I lost some from melting/compaction/measurement gaps on 3/21.)
  2. March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    Party continues with a 2 hr OPM delay Thur. About the earliest non-blizzard call I’ve seen. .
  3. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    I'm over on the Wegman's side of Kingstowne and measured 3.6" at 1pm, probably on the low side of what came down given both melting and compaction.
  4. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Measured 3.0" at 10:30am, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. Steady moderate snow since around 8am, looks great outside. Best event of the season (plus a day off).
  5. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    A healthy moderate snow in SSW Franconia/Kingstowne now. Haven’t gone out to measure yet but based on past storms this winter I’d guess I’m getting close to 0.5”. In the 1.1 mile round trip drive to Starbucks, the roads were a bit slushy but fine. Had a nice little ice layer on the car I had to hack off. Counted 19 plows on my drive.

  6. March 20-21 Storm Banter and Party Thread

    Watching the local news (NBC 4) right now is pretty amusing. For the last 30 min they’ve been doing live snow shots from Frederick, MD, interspersed with assurances from Chuck Bell that it really will snow today (albeit with reduced totals) for the rest of us. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    OPM Called it. Government closed. .
  8. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    There’s a little bit of mixing at 1pm in Foggy Bottom as I went out for lunch. And though it’s above freezing boy does it feel cold. .

    Flurries in Foggy Bottom. .
  10. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    02/17/18: 0.5" 03/06/18: 0.4" Total: 4.4"
  11. March 7 Disc/Observations

    I measured 0.4" at 10:20pm, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. It's about the prettiest event this season, with the big fat flakes covering the grass nicely. I drove home in it down 395 from DC, and it almost felt like a "real" storm. Nice surprise.
  12. PD3.5 Lite Obs and Nowcasting

    When I stopped seeing flakes out the window, I ran out and measured 0.5", SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. It felt more like it was back to rain than sleet or a mix when I was out just now.
  13. Mid-Atlantic snow totals for winter 2017/18

    01/17/18: 0.2" Total: 3.5" Moving to a tie with Baton Rouge!
  14. Jan 16/17 Event Obs/Disc

    Dutifully went out at 06:00 and measured 0.2" for my morning spotter report, SSW Franconia/Kingstowne. Cold out there as I also swept my walkway clear with a broom.
  15. Jan 8th Ice/Mix/Rain Event

    I thought we had nothing (everything was just wet when I got home around 6pm), but when I went to take out the trash a few minutes ago I nearly wiped out on my steps. Cars, roads, even the main sidewalks are fine -- it's just my front steps (that get very little sun) with ice here (SSW Franconia/Kingstowne).
