  1. 3.5" storm total in Grand Forks. Not bad for October 4th.
  2. Are those the apartments north of University on the west side of campus? Not a great view from the webcam, but any white is nice to see.
  3. And they have been whining about it.
  4. I had not seen anything about it, but they must have change the website for a reason.
  5. Rodney, I noticed that LWX updated their monthly temperature numbers at http://www.erh.noaa.gov/lwx/climate/dca/dcatemps.txt It now has 1944 as 71.6. My old spreadsheet placed us third, but with the update it looks like this May was 4th.
  6. Added warmest Jan-Mar 2012: 47.3 1990: 46.3 1998: 44.4 Almost a clear 3 degrees above 3rd place. If we are merely average for the remainder of the year, we will have a top-5 warmest year at DCA. +0.7 the rest of the way makes 2012 the king. That is how warm it has been.
  7. Falls Church, VA 8 March 2012 60.3° @ 9:13am SSE gusting to 18mph Crocuses in full bloom, daffodils peaking out, snow drops probably past peak

  9. Great idea, but we should probably wait for a few more weeks just in case we get a fluke. No point in redoing work.
  10. bluewave just posted this in the NYC thread. Thought it belonged here for posterity.
  11. 0.2" - 10/29/11 1.3" - 1/9/12 1.3" - 1/20-21/12 0.3" - 2/11-2/12 3.1" seasonal
  12. Where people started freaking out about the superband: http://www.easternuswx.com/bb/index.php?/topic/224228-dcmdvawv-obs-and-discussion-when-will-blizzard-warnings-be-hoisted/page__st__900 Classic Ji
  13. I love going back and reading the old Eastern threads. It lacks something with all of the hotlinked images missing, but the raw excitement is fantastic.
  14. 0.2" - 10/29/11 1.3" - 1/9/12 1.3" - 1/20-21/12 2.8" seasonal
  15. 0.2" - 10/29/11 1.3" - 1/9/12 I had to go back way too far to bump this thread.
  16. +5 would be considered a major torch, yet that leaves room for days in the 30s and days in the 60s. I might have answered "cold" before I had heating bills and dog chores. I just want snow, and I want the snow to stick around. So if it snows, it can be super-cold.
  17. I had always been jealous of the big east coast storms. We had plenty of snow back in MN, but I had been in only one monster, almost 20 years ago. This was finally the storm I had been waiting for. And now it seems like almost an afterthought of the 09-10 winter. Amazing.
