    Fall 2018 Photos

    All great pictures but I can almost feel the weather/fading warmth of the sun, in the glowing sunset tree photo. Well done.

    2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season Tracking Thread

    @wasnow215 I didn't take your posts as being that critical but legitimate questioning of the graphic and timing. I tend to post less around here and try to learn more from those that have been doing this longer. That being said, excellent point on how text can be taken the wrong way. Especially on a board with such a frustrating hobby, I give credit to the moderators for having to weed through a lot of stuff.

    Isabel was like a bomb went off down here in RVA. I did not have power for 2 weeks. It was legit!

    Seems reasonable based on the model output I had seen in the main thread. It could be that some folks get on the higher end but the melting/compaction that occurs may lessen that total during the day Wednesday. Which leads me to an interesting thought that I will have to google...what is the official measurement for a snowstorm? For example, at RIC Airport, assume we have great snow rates during the night and hypothetically we get 4" of snow on the board and they check that measurement, if/when melting compaction occurs while it is still snowing and at the conclusion of the event is only 2", what is the accepted official total?

    Nice video Midlo. Has me looking up Nest cams now. It was also good to see that lonely snow pile get some company at least for a little while.

    Wasnow215, guessing you live off Hunton Park Boulevard by those pics. I used to live back there in the Ridge at Hunton Park, used to run through that area...miss it. A little late on the WWA I think, I thought we would have had one around 2:30PM. This is certainly more than enough to impact the evening commute.

    Yep, can confirm moderate snow in Innsbrook...slowly sticking to grass, mulch and leaves are faring better. Winter's last gasp. At least the RIC/SEVA thread can be somewhat relevant and near the top of the board here at the bitter end. Roll on spring and severe weather season.

    Some faith, wasn't too long ago we had a March Dumper. Just hard to watch in the main thread as RVA was in the bullseye, too early as it usually is, and then you get the inevitable jog north for DC.

    That angle is always so obtuse. Hey oh!

    Nice. I would think RIC will record a trace...when I went to the gym 5:00AM it was drizzling, I came out at 6:00 to moderate to heavy snow, by 7:00 it was sticking to less traveled side roads. Caught the schools in a bind as buses were delayed due to slush on the side roads...certainly glad they didn't try and close schools. Close to 1/4 to 1/2 inch on my lawn but borderline temps, my weather station said 34 degrees, by the time I was driving to work it was about 75% melted.

    Doubtful they break it seeing as how it's 17.5". He meant for the date, 1/17...would be news if they broke their actual daily snowfall record for all days. What are we at for total in RIC - RIC Airport? For the winter, 7.5"?

    Yeah, I am guessing, looking out my window at work here in Innsbrook, that it's 2" on grass but as you pointed out, too light to build up on the roads...was hoping for an early departure but doesn't look too bad on the roads.

    I just want one big one and I am good. These small events are better than nothing but want one big enough where I am home from work and me and my wife can walk up to the bars near our house in the snow. BUT, that one big one could tear up the kiddie's spring break, they are already going to give up President's Day when they are closed tomorrow. Shoot, that 4 days they missed for that 2", granted the first 3 days I think were justified but the 4th, not sure about but given they have to take in account the whole county and that may have included some jackpot zones, I get it. Hope we get an over performer but looking at radar returns, it feels like i have seen this movie before...

    Oh he is a piece of work. I totally respect his knowledge and can understand his weenieism toward the area but I know far better to engage with him at via any form of social media.

    Good tip. I know DT is bullish and everybody, and I mean everybody here at my office follows him. We have had a couple of opportunities but none have truly delivered and I can't complain in a region that can go years without a snow chance when we have 3 before the end of January but the hate for the RIC in other threads is a bit annoying. It's like we get dumped on all the time. Bob C. put a nice PSA out there and did some clean up in the thread but wow, winter is not over and I will bet a dozen Krispy Kremes that Winchester, DC and other points will do far better than RVA when all is said and done.
