Just measured 6 inches. Woohoo!

 

Me too, my snow depth is getting tough to measure but I cleared my snowboard after 3.0 inches and have another 3.0 there now.

Hope you get at least 36 inches :)

Thanks brotha. I'm really praying for 38.4 though. 38.3 was Elkridge in 2010. Lol. You de man Jeb. You de man...

Hey, hope you can top the Snowmageddon totals!  I think your area had one of the highest reported totals (if not the highest?) from that storm.

Looking at the Wakefield radar, things are looking really juicy. The yellow/orange blob around Farmville looks to be over my area around 11:30/12. Can't wait! Heading out to do the first run on the driveway with the snowblower.

Looks like my fun is about to ease up, plume rotating off to me NE, been a great day. I'm hoping in the morning that I see lots of 30's listed from up there! Enjoy folks.

Stay safe and record well!

It's a radar dead zone. Ignore it.

I thought about that, but doesn't that area usually show up from lwx? What would make this scenario different?

Just looked outside and I can't even tell if it is snowing at all.  2 hours now with next to nothing.  Definitely not worth the effort to fight that wind and try to find a reliable spot to measure.  Glad to hear that at least it's performing well farther east.  That looks to be the favored area for this one.
