I'm in Baltimore. The radar over me finally looks good. I look outside. It's snowing, but not nearly as much as some light green returns from last night. What is going on?

10.5" official. 4" since 3pm (very high ratio) and 10" sitting on all elevated hard surfaces. 

There are going to be double digit totals all over dc/nova/md burbs. Amazing. Want a foot...might happen

I was going to be happy with 4”, that was gonna be my most ever. A foot is mind blowing.

Hope you're feeling better today. Out of curiosity, this the biggest snowstorm of your life? You definitely were in a great spot for this one.

The icing would be for the big moco-hoco deathband to hold together and rotate through DC as the pivot completes. My guess is no but every conservative guess i've made has been wrong

It very much is. Tempered by me still feeling sick. Either the flu or the remnants of Norovirus. Hoping is the later. I’ll know if I wake up better or worse tomorrow.

Meh. Was looking good for double digits up until an hour or two ago. My loss is your gain.

CONGRATS! This, is a very very good time for a nice, leisurely jebwalk.

You know its good when you gotta walk backwards against the snow because you can't even see where you're going.

Yes!!! Yes!! My daughter and I were walking backward up the street!!!

Damn... sorry about that. Hope you get better soon. As so many others have been saying, this is just the beginning of a potentially epic period of deep winter. Glad you were able to experience this, even if it was mostly from inside.

Tapering off eastern PW and Fairfax. Losing lift maybe?? Pivot in full effect,  stuck at 7.25 in. About 6.2 otg. Another 1/4 inch will get me to double digits for the season. Not completely in the screw zone, but as usual, on the lower end of the scale.

Any chance this moistens up and we get another inch or so out of this?

1" is probably the most optimistic scenario, IMO.

So much snow on the tree limbs I can't see my nighttime light to see how hard its snowing. Snow town problems I guess

I always look over at my neighbors Arborvitae and try to figure out how they dont break during our huge storms. Those things are tough as nails.

15 miles made quite a difference.  Measured 9 inches as we wind down.  Not too shabby.  Never mixed here.  Guess rt 28 was the dividing line for PWC

9" in upper NW. I'm sure there's been some compaction, so more than that has probably fallen. Doesn't really matter; it's a dynamite storm. Just walked over to Whole Foods. Moderate to occasionally heavy snow there and back. DC and environs are rolling all 6's with this one.

I'm within a mile or two of four corners (inside the beltway), and I just measured 9" at 7 PM. Maybe compaction?

Been under the yellows right near 100&29 and it is straight ripping fatties. Best part of the storm so far and we are 24hrs in!!!! Doesn't look like this death band is moving much.
