    Agree, once we hit the second week of March, I am ready for warmer temps. I have a feeling it will continue to be cold and wet until May and then straight into humidity hell. Hope I am wrong, give us an Ash Wednesday redux in March and then bring on spring a week later and some thunderstorms damn it and I will be a happy camper and think back on the winter fondly with bookend blockbusters.

    Ugh, Dirty Slurpee, would be just the way to cap a season that once seemed to have such promise.

    Eh, can't argue with them based on model output. Me thinks I got spoiled from the December blockbuster, now anything short of a warning criteria is just "meh" Timing will be tough for schools though, even though you get a switchover to rain, it likely doesn't clear everything up before your 2 hour delay option so I think Henrico and surrounding may have to make a call at 5AM tomorrow as not certain enough to make tonight although parents pressure about the 5AM wakeup from Jenks and blah, blah, blah, not enough time to plan may weigh in.

    True. I am sure we can look back and probably correlate early snow for RIC is a bad sign for winter snow but it's probably so skewed because we have so many famine winters anyway. Fingers crossed but once it's March, I am sort of done and ready for spring. Easter is late this year so I am not going to turn down any snow but it's just not the same. Along the lines of spring, I am actually hoping we have a decent severe weather season as it has been a while since thunderstorms have been consistent in the spring to early summer.

    We had our feast in December and it has been famine ever since. I would be happy with just one more warning criteria snow but time is running short and model inconsistency this winter has ebbed my hopes appropriately.

    Never give up, never surrender! I can't let Ji have my snow! (stomps feet in tantrum)

    Latest GFS has us in the jackpot zone. Still time to shift but a few more runs like that and I am hitting the ABC store to stock up for Sunday.

    12/9 shifted in our favor late as I recall, don't like being in the bullseye this far out...we have seen this movie too many times before.

    I thought 2" more would put us as the 2nd rainiest since records were kept, 1899 or 1897, one of those around that time, still too far out of reach.

    It has been fun guys, hope the first of many. I measured 13" at Blueberry Hill Court, Forest at Patterson here in the 23229 at 8:10PM and then shoveled the walk. The airport reporting 11.5, it has to be the closest I have been with them on a major storm...since...well, ever!

    At 10.5" at 5:30. Big, big hit.

    December 9/10 Storm

    9" in near West End Henrico, just outside RIC. Still great rates.

    9" here in Westham by UR, Forest and Patterson. So, that means 2.5 at the airport, right? Can't complain, waiting for the Xmas lights to come on now that I have cleared them all off. Great start to the season.

    Just got back looking for snow pants for the stepdaughter, main roads, Parham and Patterson caving quicker than I thought. We called it, now 1" on the grill! Moderate with bursts of heavy.
