Like clockwork. psuhoffman can't respond to your post because his house is buried.

I thought I could get out early for a first run with the snowblower (24" clearance) but by the time I got out it was already over 2 feet deep in most places. Took me all morning to clear out my 1/4 mile drive and now it's covered with a foot again where I started. No way to measure but it's about 18" in low spots and 4-5 feet in drifts.

I have faith in this storm. I always KNEW we would have snow this winter, even in the face of this super El Nino.

And even in the face of the panic room.

I just KNOW DC is gonna get annihilated today/tonight by heavy snow.

I got this bad foot, from an old injury.

It's aching.

Get those shovels ready, DC!

For the little it is probably worth, HRRR latest run shows a widespread 6-10 inches at a 10:1 ratio, and I'm guesing we are higher than that, so another 4-8 or something is possible in the right bands if it's going to snow until 10 or so tonight.

Mattie's comment about +SN is well taken. Through this entire storm, I'd say I've only had brief intervals of <1/4mi vis and I'd report that as +SN BLSN if I was taking an ob. Just lots and lots of 1/2mi vis for this storm.

Speaking of...+SN BLSN. About the heaviest I've yet seen in this storm.

Back to ripping in my part of balt city - 20 inches total as of 2:00 but only has an inch in last hour and forty five - but if this band will stay over me for a bit - can chunk some more toward two feet.

Almost been 24 hours now since first flake fell at my house.

I'm yardstick measuring between 22 and 24 in my yard just south of AU in Wesley Hts.  I saw 2pm tv reports of 19 in DuPont (which was probably a couple of hours behind).  It's picked up a bit the last few minutes.  It would be great for us in the NW DC area to get to uniform reports of ~28 (though unlikely), again mindful that the Knickerbocker "record" was measured at 24th and M, not in the middle of the river in South Arlington.

With rates having finally picked up, I cleared my trash can lid that I had cleared at 10 am, and there was another inch there, bringing me to somewhere in the 16-17" range overall.

You are an inspiration Jeb. Even my kids know what a "Jeb walk" means. Hope this is magical for you!

Really nice radar presentation setting up. Looks like the best period for the corridor is on deck. Triples or home runs please

I'm kinda starting to think we may sniff 3 feet.  It's been piling up lately.

Jeb if I can get you to my place would you shovel my 30'' of power and 4 foot drifts?

 

*Edit* By the time you get here it will likely be more than that

yup, finally back in a decent band, just came back in.  Looks like 17inches is my average reading but everything is drifted I got as low as 11.5 and as high as 21. Should be accumulating pretty quickly now
