I think my signature only has a few lines left to add events to it before I have to condense....great winter for me. Lots of events...big small and in between...perfect blend...nice bone chilling cold...impressive warm ups even if short lived...and snow events spread throughout the season. I've jackpot...I've been fringed...I've been on the outside looking in...I've just made it in. Had some disappointments...had some surprises....all in all if I had to choose what I want my winter to look like...I'm gonna go with the winter of 2013/14 :)

 

Should surpass 50" for the second time 5 yrs, 3rd time in 12. 

 

Good blend of events. Great winter. 

 

I don't count winters prior to 1970 because I don't recall them distinctly, but starting from there this is a top 10 winter. I'm not referring to snow amts so much as the overall experience of the winter.

 

Look what the cat dragged in.. :)

 

NIce seeing you, Sir

 

How you been?

 

Nothing like a good winter to stir me back to life here.

Looks like some really nice radar returns are developing to DC's SW... not sure if it will move to our south or clip the city, but they are showing up as yellows/oranges on radar and looks to be expanding a bit.

 

Navy Yard is down to 26 degrees now... steady, light snow is falling.

I just had a spreader truck come down the street.

Arlington must be desperate to restart school sometime this week.

Coming back up, it stopped for a moment just below me, so I could see snowflakes falling.

Edit: And now plowing the center of the street!

I'm getting the sense that here in DC we don't really ever lull.....also becoming interesting what happens after say 11am...we could be in for a high ratio treat between 11am-2pm....I dont know about the N MD crew....I am not "rooting" against anyone...I am trying to be objective about what might happen later after the big push

Measured 1" on part of the sidewalk I cleared the sleet from when the snow started.

Winter is doing its part. I might as well do mine. Need a bit more snow before going for a Jebwalk though.

Fingers crossed.

 

I for one appreciate all that you do to keep some of us updated. Definitely agree about not going into a lull... looks like DC is in a spot for steady, light snow at least... and if we can get hit by some of this moderate/heavy stuff to the SW, then that will just make the later snow even better later this AM.

I don't see a lull at least right now..the best stuff is supposed to light us up between 7-10 am. We;ll see what happens after that, but if we can get into some of the high ratio stuff then we'll be in good shape.

You all got robbed a couple times before that one.

 

i'd have to look at the numbers to be sure of this, but my memory is that anytime we end Jan with >20" our total for the winter comes in at more than double that.

The plows are rolling by often...I'm guessing there is a nice layer of ice under the snow from the primer rain...shoveling will be a chore....sure would be a shame to miss a really cool event like this. ;)
