That’s sick, route 97 near Bachmans Mill this morning was a complete white out, plus there was all that snow blowing off the trees making matters worse. Sidenote, 97 stinks this morning both north and south of Westminster

97 and 75 and Middleburg Rd in Carroll County have been clusters since last night.

Crazy to think that 31 looked just fine compared to those, does it look fine closer out into New Windsor?

Really hard to get an accurate reading on what I got with the squall around 7 due to the winds but am going with 1.25" which is more then likely low. Looking at radar and it looks as if I will have another one roll in shortly.

Picked up another .6" in about 30-35 minutes with the second squall. Neat little storm as it was predominately popcorn snow and only towards the tail end did we see it flip over to fluffy dime sized flakes.

That could be too low. I'm going with 2 here.

I am thinking you are right especially when I see the totals some have gotten around me. Caught me by surprise so I really didn't have a chance to set up an area for measuring. Just hate claiming something I can't verify.

When I left the FD around 4:30 31 was fine.  We had some weird freezing fog until around 1am and it just slicked everything up.

Well this puts a couple of you guys near 7” for this event as a whole. Models have squalls through the afternoon, and I’m watching that batch in PA. A respectable 5.25” west of Minster with a fresh half inch from the squall that just moved through. 
 

Interested to see how much more a few of us could tack on.

Just got a chance to post this . I had 90 minute ride to my service call in Harford County early this morning that I was late for because I didnt want to miss the squalls lol. But this was taken at a old baseball buddy of mines house not far from me on Motter rd.

1” over here in Frederick. 

I was surprised how little seemed to be on the ground going to work off 85.  Didn't get an official measurement but easily 2.5-3" at about 530' in New Market.

Fairfax schools just closed, to join Culpeper, Fairfax (for students), Fauquier, Fredericksburg, Loudoun (for students), Manassas, Manassas Park, Prince William, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Rappahannock and Madison.

The UHI area (Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church) is on two-hour delays.

Went back and forth from home to the Virginia Square area this morning.  Striking how much of a winter wonderland it looks like once you get west of EFC metro vs down by Ballston and the interior Arlington Orange Line.

Got off the train at L’Enfant this morning to nothing but bare ground. I wasn’t surprised at all, but it’s shocking to see the difference between there and home.

That’s definitely 3”/hr stuff. I had to pull into someone’s drive off Bachman’s mill when I journeyed to the squall. 
 

Was driving down as the visibility began to drop, then snow from a tree came and must have covered the entire car. Car went sliding and luckily 10 seconds later when I could see again I found myself on the opposite side of 97. Let’s be thankful no one was coming.
