Photos thread for Jan 22-24 Blizzard

Recommended Posts

My favorite radar shot from the storm. Still hours from becoming mature. Reminded me of Sandy's Radar shot. I got screwed on this storm a little bit, but happy I lived to witness the Blizzard of 2016

Yeah thats when it was ripping here. I will remember this storm in 2 parts- the great front end thump, then the massive dead zone that developed as the cold conveyor got going. It really just stayed in place and puked snow for hours, but just to the east was a huge dry slot/subsidence zone.

Grilled Bison Burgers while it was still pouring snow in Rockville. This is insane.

 

You just reminded me that there is football on today. Burgers it is today. 

 

I'm doing a picture dump today.

I walked up and down the the street this morning. Feeling very good about 30" now. Plenty of settled 27"+ readings in various places. The lowest close spotter report was 29.6" but all the others were over 30".  I don't get big wind on our street so drifting wasn't bad until up the hill. 

 

Here's some shots from the walk:

 

The plows are going to leave a mountain if they every get here:

I went back and looked at snowmageddon pics. I took a similar shot in the morning after and storm is more visually impressive. No doubt about it.

My dog isn't small. He's 65lbs. My neighbor ran his snowblower down line. Nice clean cut and gives perspective to depth.

My kids' car is under there. We partially cleaned last night. It's not a small car. It's a 2002 Mercury Sable.

Thanks man. The greatest overall storm experience of my life. The tracking part was a bit frantic at times but the big show blew my mind. I feel totally refreshed. One good night of sleep and ready to do it again. This winter is already a victory if it ended today. You guys look to get it shortly. I'm thinking Feb is memorable up and down the coast. It has the look and feel from what I'm seeing already on guidance.

Current road situation. Its a disaster. Not a single plow through entire event.

Snow adds a nice touch to photos along the water ;)

Nice shot. There should be another thread for "artistic" snow/winter photography. Too many buried cars and snow covered deck furniture shots from homes in subdivisions lol.
