    Screw this wind. Hired some guys to install drywall in my basement and of course it has to be windy. Couldn't open the windows to vent the dust because it was blowing everything back inside and upstairs.

    Saturday was like a dust bowl around here, topsoil was even cracking. Not so much anymore. Good ol' gully washer!

    Not getting snow is one thing, but if thats the case warm the F up already. This cold and windy stuff literally blows.

    Icon is very similar to gfs track.

    I have good memories of huge snowball fights on the drillfield. Wonder if they still do them?

  8. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Ended up with 7" here in Ellicott City. The rates during the height of the storm made it worthwhile. We had heavy/mod from around 10-2. Probably 2"/hr at some points. It also stuck to everything and made for some great pictures and jebwalking. I could see if you had light/mod all day how this storm would suck. My call a couple days ago was 2-4 DC, 3-6 immediate burbs and 6+ N&W. Pretty good for a weenie :). We need to remember lessons learned. The bizarre euro with insane snow depths should have been tossed. The NAMs were jumpy but if you tossed the bizarre runs (Williamsburg jackpot) I think it was close on snow depth, especially within 48hrs. Also PHL north will not be denied*. Maybe that is why many people are bitter in here. We had some forecasts for 8+ in the cities but it ended up northeast of here. I guess part 2 was a Miller B? Those almost never work around here so we should be lucky with what we got. Part 1 probably would have worked for everyone had it been jan/feb. * except for 2009-2010.

    Yeah and they just happen to hit right when the models come out. More like weenie overload. Maybe it's the corn fuel messing up the server.

    4" and sn+. How much longer we got?

    Central md snow hole right now. Looks like the fdk Carroll north Baltimore band is setting up. Very tiny flakes at a slow clip. Hopefully that blob south of rt50 rotates up here.

    The good news is that it started as snow. I think one thing the models we're showing was some sleet to start. Need to maximize precip.

    But hey at least NYC is gonna trip into another big storm.

    Haha you're gonna be really pissed when PSU land is reporting 10+ and we got scraps. Maybe they should refrain from deck pics today

    I don't get it, the 6z name still lays down 6". Looks to start around 8am. Wasn't that always the case?
