I'm a couple of miles SE of you and I had 1.1" before the sleet started.  We did flip back to snow a few minutes ago.

Measure 1" on my snowboard in my front lawn an hour ago, 1.25" on my deck, and I'm close to both of you

funny how all the models kept putting leesburg in the snowhole last night and today we have been in bullseye all day long

Can confirm. I decided to spend the majority of the day in Leesburg as I needed to do some shopping there too. No regrets! Time to move there lol

No wind so nothing is hitting the windows, which makes it harder to figure out.

Huh.  I'm hearing that icy sound in bursts.  Flake size has gone way down.  Was hoping those dumping fatties would last a bit longer to get me to 2.2" (and 10" on the season), but couldn't quite do it.  Maybe we can get one more burst before it changes/ends for good.

What a difference 10 minutes makes. As soon as the temperature dropped below 33 degrees, the roads are now turning really white, as well as my driveway. 0.8'' of fluffy white sneaux.

Now starting to hear pingers all of a sudden.

Roads around Leesburg crazy slippery, frozen slush is no joke.  Got rear ended at traffic light, came home and slid back down inclined driveway 2x with brake on and trans parked.  That is a slick road.

Went out about 4:30 just as the SN+ flipped to sleet to plow our driveway, which has a hill that gets tricky with the slightest sn.  Lawyers Road N. of Vienna was ok at the time with a white stripe in the middle from the sn.  In 20 mins the sleet turned the street to  combo of hard-pack and a slippery slushy mess.  Temp went down to 32, where it remains.  Traffic quickly turned it into a vehicle crawl.  Don't understand why folks with low aspect high performance tires venture out in this stuff.  Just asking for trouble.  People were driving 5mph, which makes it impossible to keep up any momentum.  The scene brings back images of commutergeddon.

If that band in Eldersburg isn't sleet, I shudder to think what kind of snow that is putting down right now. That has to be 2-3 inches an hour.

Nice walk. Flipped to sleet in the middle of the walk now back to mostly snow. I'm prob gonna get 2" after all if I'm not there already. Even the main roads caved. Very nice event. My dog doesn't need a leash. He'll never go into the street without permission. Love that damn dog. lol

My beagle Stella just turned 17. She wanted no part of this, and she's usually gung-ho for a walk. The same dog that, during PD 2, we decided to let off leash during the teeth of the storm. She bounded down the street toward Wisconsin and I thought that was that. I yelled at her to stop, and fortunately she did, and I was able to scoop her up before she got flattened by a snow plow. I doubt she's have seen 17 if she'd disappeared for good. She was considerably more mobile then. Hell, so was I. 

I know this veered into chat, but every time I see a picture of a dog in the snow, I think back to that incident.

And now it's rain and sleet at my house.  Literally switched in the last 2-3 minutes.  

 

Sad trombone.
