7.5 total. Only 1.75 from round 2. I was about 15 miles too far south and east of the goods. In that several hour lull, I had sleet and freezing rain/drizzle. The round 2 bands set up about 40 miles north of what was modeled. As usual. Pretty uniform totals across PWC with 7 to 11 inches reported east to west.

Thanks don. That captures the forum split on this storm perfectly. 

Frustrating for those of us in here in the blue. Although I think that frustration was generally handled well. 

Probably the biggest forum splitter in terms of totals over such a short distance in our forum where a majority of forum cashed and a small area didn’t since I think the second Feb 2010 blizzard left @mattie g area behind in terms of totals. Maybe @C.A.P.E.‘s area in Jan. 2016 in the dry slot too.

fun storm to track though and at least no one got shut out.

It was nice to see DCA reach 10" for the first time since the January 22-23, 2016 mega snowstorm. Hopefully, all locations in the region will cash in with even larger amounts as the pattern continues to evolve toward a cold and potentially snowy one.

Oh my god guys, I have a pile of snow that is 3' high from shoveling. My son now has a tiny shovel that a neighbor gave me. I really got to meet all of my neighbors who helped a clueless person like me figure out how to deal with all the snow. This is great. Bonus pictures! 11.5" was my final snowfall amount.

 

SNOW IS AWESOME!

Great storm, but what happened to more snow to the south?  Martinsburg with 4" more than me.  Lol.  Wtf.

we got into heavy bands for several hours yesterday afternoon.  at one point my visibility was down to 1/8 mile.

Wow.  I didn't get anything like that.  Hours of non accumulating  snizzle, until about 2pm.  Decent rates until about 330.  Picked up about an inch during that 90 min period.  After that it was just pixie dust until after 10 PM.  Picked up about another inch over those 7 hours.  Really poor ratio snow; it was like sweeping sand.  Pretty dense.

 

Remarkable for how long it snowed, but equally for how little I got.  The length of this storm (33 hours) nearly matched the '96 storm, but with vastly different results.

I am super happy for you that you finally got to experience a legit snowstorm. There's nothing like it, in my view.

here’s one of the bands—visibility dropped even more after this:

That's right...start 'em off early with doing the chores!  Uphill, both ways, with the sun in your eyes!  And like it! :lol:

But seriously...nice photos, and glad your first "real" snow event since being in this area was so fun!

(ETA:  I heard Jebman offers training courses in proper shoveling technique!)

Those are lifetime memories you are creating for your son.  Good job training him up in the ways that are good and right!!!

Before the move I lived in Glen Burnie all my life, so 2010 and all the classic HECS (2003, 1996, etc). I experienced up there. January 2000 was huge in southern MD too wasn’t it?

Yes we got about 18" out of that one in Charlotte Hall ( Where I grew up, at the northern tip of St. Marys) I remember I was up playing guitar when the 10 oclock news came on and Sue Palka said anyone who went to bed before this newscast is in for a rude awakening when they wake up!! That was such an awesome storm because we were supposed to get 1-2" of slop and then the storm was heading out to sea. The last couple years havent been great, but we have actually managed to eek out a little more than those in the northern portion of the sub-forum. I am hoping we get one HECS this year to ease the pain of the last few years.

Will we get to see that time-lapse footage you mentioned you'd set up for this storm?  That'll be cool to watch with such a long duration but placid (wind-wise) storm...

My storm total in Arlington VA was 9.5.  :axe:

I had gotten a path cleared to my car, but now I have to do that and the car ALL OVER AGAIN.
