  1. Why foreccast of snowstorms sometimes bust

    Great read, as always! Thanks Wes.

    I awoke to a shade over 1/2 inch here in N. Bethesda.

    Lots of slick spots in North Bethesda. Most sidewalks are a skating rink, even the ones that looked like a salt flat this morning. A few slick spots downtown by Farragut Square, but mostly just wet there.
  5. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Lol. Unless I'm mistaken that's one of the "creeks" behind the Mallard Island development. Impressive that it's frozen over! Looking forward to more pics.

    Awesome report. I've been living vicariously through you. In that last shot, is the water frozen over on the bay side?
  7. Jan 4th Coastal Obs/Disc

    Looks like about .5" in N. Bethesda. I can get to an inch if I slant stick the drifts...

    Even easier: hover your cursor over the poster's name, and a menu will pop up that includes "ignore user". Use it liberally. It really improves the experience!
  9. Dec 8/9 Obs and discussion (Showme's) Storm

    I ended up with 2.75 here in N. Bethesda

    I believe that's where Josh and Reed have set up shop.

    Good question. In my experience, lightningmaps.org is not perfectly precise with its strike placement. Someone smarter can me can probably explain how it works, but observationaly, I have noticed that the strikes can be off by a mile or more. For example, I'll see a strike out of my south-facing window, and it will show up on the map 10 blocks north of me. So, perhaps more strikes were actually hitting the bridge, but just not captured as such on the map.

    Now the Bay Bridge is getting nuked

    Insane. It's like several dozen per second. I've never seen anything close to that.

    4.6" and counting since midnight here in Ocean City. The ocean looks particularly wet.
  15. August OBS/DISCO

    It was indeed. We're in Ocean City, and were able to see the lightning from the storms when they were still back around Chambersburg. That's around 175 miles away! Definitely a new record for me. It certainly helps that we are on the 11th floor.
