    MLK Weekend Event - Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

    Was exepecting higher winds by now. It’s barely breezy. Peaked at 51.1 at 4:49am and down to 40.8 now. snow didn’t survive much, a few piles here and there.

    Light Snow Event - 1/17-1/18 Obs and Discussion

    That map added Anne Arundel county, northern PG county, and southern Harford County from < 1" to the 1" - 2" zones. Realistically speaking, I'm interested in the impact. The timing will be everything. Flakes fly during commute and its havoc despite being lite. If it doesn't start til 0z, then we're probably in the clear and most will barely notice.

    Light Snow Event - 1/17-1/18 Obs and Discussion

    Even as a light snow event, with timing in the afternoon, potentially during rush hour, this is certainly going to be a buzz around the office. I take joy in watching the mass exodus at work, upon the first sighting of snowflakes. Special weather statement says stay tuned for potential winter weather advisories later tonight or tomorrow. WooHoo!

    Where do you work?

    November Banter

    I'm impressed that the thread regarding tomorrow's event is 21 pages long and I haven't seen a mentioning about sun angle yet (unless I missed it).

    November Banter

    I just saw three Anne Arundel County dump trucks with plows hooked up. They actually looked spotless, brand new, heading east on MD Rt.32. Probably coincidental, maybe they were brand new or maybe they were headed to/from getting serviced for the Winter. Either way, it put a smile on my face sitting in traffic

    It was downgraded to a cat2. I didn’t expect it to weaken

    Exactly, rates picked up and we’re back to big flakes.

    Rain rt. 3 Crofton, but it’s been mist/drizzle most of the morning. Wheres the rain/snow line? Was at least expecting snowTV.

    Out of curiosity, why the skepticism? Just because of the bad luck so far this winter? Euro upping the amounts, the NAM with nice numbers. HRRR showing some great mesoscale banding... I'm not keeping track as well as most on here, but I see more and more positive things for NE MD and now even into some central parts.

    March 1-2 wind event

    For those who recognize the old Dairy Farm in Gambrills, I live across the street. The electric fence failed and backup (solar) hadn’t seen sun for days. The cows got loose... cops had to shut down the road for 15 minutes in both direction while the farmer could rally. About 40 cows were in the road. Really wish I saw a police tweet on it just to file away with the memories of this storm.

    March 1-2 wind event

    Pretty much a non-event in Gambrills/Odenton. Some flurries and a light breeze right now. Some gusts overnight were strong but never sustained and lots of calm breaks in between.

    March 1-2 wind event

    I guess imby, I was expecting more furious sustained winds, but they definitely die down for periods of time. More like strong gusts here and there.

    March 1-2 wind event

    Does the wind clear up during the day Saturday? Wondering about the Caps outdoor game at the naval academy. Would be tough to enjoy in 30mph winds
