December 9/10 Storm

Recommended Posts

Snow is apparently quite a rarity here. So a near miss storm at any point is very disappointing. It was December 9th last year too. Remember how that turned out?

If you want to be a glass half empty guy, then have at it. 

Last year turned out alright in my backyard, and probably yours too.

you are dragging me towards the ledge. i will forever remember this mistake

I made a similar mistake years ago. January 2011, I stayed in college (UMD) and didn't go home before the storm. I didn't anticipate the vast difference in totals between the two locations. Long story short, College Park ended up with 4" of slop. At home it was 14", with a lot of thundersnow too. It's been almost 8 years, but I'm still not sure if I've completely gotten over it.

Depends on where you are. Barracks Shopping center has a foot.

Took me an hour to clear a path to my car and get it out.

Local mets noted ratios were 20:1. Can definitely believe that. Was pure powder for hours.

Official total from McCormick Observatory was 12.9"

 

More snow yesterday than all of the last two years COMBINED in downtown Cville.

Guess I'll bump up my total then.

Don't say that! I'm feeling better this morning though. Was definitely upset yesterday evening.

As far as i remember, we didn’t really get any snow after that one in Richmond, but i believe there was a lot of teasing in the long range which ended up north.
