  1. RIC has has bad luck this year along with low ball numbers coming from the airport observers. Been some years since I've seen it this bad. 7-8" is probably more accurate, but it is what it is. Even ORF looks to finish the season with 11.2".
  2. Not sure why the airport only recorded 0.4" today. Most people saw 1-2".
  3. Roads are finally covered in Williamsburg, about 2mi SW of W&M. I'd say 0.75 to 1" in the grass so far and still falling. Back edge of the precip is near though, but it might be trying to pivot near/over me.
  4. I'm in Williamsburg and it's sticking to cold surfaces (cars, mulch, etc). Radar looking like it's filling in out east.
  5. Yes, especially after all the tracking this month, lets get a bona fide 6"+ event. Responded to your PM, btw.
  6. 90 is as far as it goes, looks like it is. I don't either, just copied from the other thread.
  7. I'm not confident about tonight/tomorrow morning, we are grasping at straws. This is painfully frustrating. We've been tracking almost nonstop since around 12/30 and this pattern just hasn't produced. The immediate DC area is the biggest winner on the entire east coast. I hope we eventually cash in.
  8. RIC has been screwed so far this year, either too far south on 1/3, 1/6, and 1/16 to potentially being too far N & W on 1/21. If this was the first event, I'd be inclined to agree. However, 3" is nothing compared to what's happened just N & W and now it looks like there will be a miss S & E. We can do a lot better than 3" at the most climatologically favorable time of the year. Oh and by the way, the pattern, although not perfect, is decent for a Nina.
  9. Too many to name, and ORF had two blizzards, two years in a row (17 & 18). 1/3/2018 1/7/2017 2/26/2015 1/28/2014 12/26/2010 12/26/2004 12/3/2000 2/18/1989 2/6/1980 etc.
  10. We are due for an old school NC/VA snowstorm that used to occur more regularly. I guess we can consider 12/9/2018 as one of them, but a there were so many from the 1960s through the 1980s to name.
