  1. C-. Another snowhole winter a la 2017-18, 2012-13, or 2010-11. Positives: - Hit above average snowfall for February and higher than average frequency of events for the season - Sustained snowpack in most places in February - most will look back at the 1/31-2/20 period as one of our best periods for snow in a while unless you live near DCA - First widespread sleetstorm and Ice Storm Warning in our region in over a decade - No mega torches - Doesn't factor in to the score, but saw 15" of snow in State College in December Negatives: - Below average and below median snowfall - Many storms underperformed this year while we watched areas in all directions (but especially north and west) get buried time and time again. Adding more insult to injury, we watched places like Austin, Del Rio, Little Rock, OKC, Memphis, etc. have historic winters while most of us sat on the sidelines. - No major cold outbreaks - No pure snowstorms Overall not the worst winter I've experienced (this century I'd put 2019-20, 2012-13, 2011-12, 2007-08, and 2001-02 below it) but one of the most frustrating for sure. For the first time in years we get NAO blocking, but seemed like every storm in the cities fell apart at the eleventh hour. At least last year was a joke everywhere from start to finish.
  2. Yay! Thanks to this post I just checked and got my grandparents an appointment this weekend at CVS, over 2 months before their originally scheduled date!
  3. Annapolis, MD: 38.968532, -76.513223
  4. The returns over Wilmington are heavy snow, according to family members on the ground.
  5. Flipped to a snow/sleet mix. Mostly sleet at the moment.
  6. Moderate snow and immediately accumulating on all surfaces. Sun angle season, am I right?
  7. It's snow here in Annapolis, let's go!!
  8. 35/25 in Annapolis. Going to be a close call for getting flakes here.
  9. Light snow/sleet mix in Annapolis. Had a decent glaze of ice on hard surfaces this morning.
  10. I'm a bit farther west than you. Sleet bomb continues here. Measurements in the grass range from 1.2-1.8" or so.
  11. And now we're back to sleet but that was probably the heaviest snow we've seen all year.
  12. Wow, just flipped to mostly snow in Annapolis!
  13. Got about an inch of sleet on the ground and still assaulting at the moment. It's brutal outside. Can't even be mad about missing out on the snow, this is a unique event and it's better than freezing rain.
  14. Wow, heaviest and loudest sleet I've experienced in years.
  15. Light sleet in Annapolis, been that way since the very beginning.
