Folks...snowfall measurements with this storm will be very important.  FEMA declares disasters based off the amount of snow each county has received and then compares it to the emergency response expenses.  Measure twice, report once.

They even said on the radio show measure a ton of times - the drifting is going to make it very very difficult. Take like 15 measurements and see what shows up the most.

I'm planning on putting snow boards with marker poles. I'll have to double it for the white monster. She's one bad a&* looking storm. Absolutely stunning show of force. Sends chill up my spine.

So does the fact that precipitation is already in SW VA mean anything?

I was wondering the same thing. Is the timing correct or is it coming in sooner? My sister is going to be moving her son in to U of MD tomorrow.
