kiddo wants to go out and play, but she has strep (again), so I'm hesitate to let her do so. Pretty view out the back door this morning though!

There will be more snows. I couldn't let mine go out and play either because he has a double ear infection.

1.6", though much less on the hard surfaces.  Better than I gave it credit for initially.  Snow is very fluffy, but a good icy base.  Very nice crunchy morning out.  Given the perfect temps for several days afterwards, I'm confident in saying this will be my favorite event of the season.

Glad you got in on the action this time. I think we will get a couple of more before the winter is over.

das was definitely not in the bullseye.  0.3" for the total here in Clarksburg.  10 miles to the north, there's 2" on the ground.  I was just south of the cutoff for hours.  HRRR did very well.

Yes it did. I commented on that last night. I need to make a mental note of that for future events for sure.

Thanks.  I was pleasantly surprised.  There was just enough for the wife to take the kids out to play in.  This is the first snow that our 15 month-old has actually experienced, but I'm at work.  Wish this had come 1 day later.

Question:  why do people report snow measures in tenths of an inch?  Are they buying rulers labeled that way?

I use a drafting T-square which has tenths of an inch on it. It works great.

Wasn't there an advisory issued down there?
