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

Could be.  If you take a single measurement at the end of the storm it will be lower than the total accumulated snow.  You’ll actually be measuring snow depth instead.

Awesome afternoon/evening.

About 30-40 minutes before "sunset" you could see brightening in the sky to the North (BC/BCo) direction. Then snow started to pick up. Accumulating snow began at about 445. Roads are completely covered.

Started to get heavy about 45 minutes ago. Hardest since this morning. Big flakes too.

7” easy right now. Just sayin. I’m thinking maybe a few more...

It's over 8" for us without doubt.

Afternoon moco death band(s) exceeded my wildest expectations. Incredible storm on all levels. Tracking for days and serious overperformance. Rare occurrence...

It definitely helped to boost the morale on this forum. Especially after 3 terrible years. And this was supposed to be no big deal. I think most are satisfied (except Ji, of course). And probably the Northern MD crew.

Yup.  The snow report next to Reisterstown is me.  Been dancing on the edge since sunrise.

You’re likely over 9 now with this band. Columbia EC Clarksburg are getting hammered

Prob a transformer if i had to guess. Not seeing any strikes on lightningmaps.

No calls for a transformer or investigations pending in CAD.  Might be a lone strike.

I'm in Towson.  It looks like I should be on the edge of that band, but there's not a flake in the sky.
