Yeah after being disappointed by many a North Carolina storm, I’ve learned that when the NAM sniffs out a warm nose to never doubt it. I’d hoped maybe DC’s climo would maybe make up for some of it, but oof. I’ve learned my lesson again for a new place!

Guess I have to move to Canada. 

But yeah, the dryness is very frustrating. 

Yeah, not sure you heard, DC climate is Atlanta’s from the 1980’s now.

At least Winchester is cashing in, there was that one run where it seemed like I-95 area might not get hosed but that meant they might lose .1 qpf and I was so worried for them.

Pepperidge farms remembers one poster from around that area going on and on about precip cutting back and which model would be right. I hope he is ok this morning.

Night shift banter is always a gift.

Day shift isn’t too shabby either. Let’s just say it. The board shines when I post. #myegoisinflated #everyonewilldisagree #randyisfunnier

I wish I could selectively put some folks on ignore during these kinds of storms so I don't have to see their obs.

Things I Need To Work On Today:

  1. Ignoring numerous obs per hour from Union Bridge members
  2. Ignoring posts from Union Bridge members sharing their extended family/friends' obs (who may or may not live outside the sub's reach)
  3. Ignoring posts from Union Bridge members predicting what the conditions are going to be like in other sub members' locations

Was he the one that reported that his twice-removed great auntie got 40” in Labrador?

This storm hurt. I thought it was a lock for like 2-3” for the 95 peeps. Virtually every model showed .5” of frozen precip.

To be fair, it is all frozen.  Just the wrong kind of frozen.

This really annoyed me a couple storms ago. There's nearly nothing more disheartening than to get obs/pics from places 150 miles away that are getting crushed while I drizzle.

I don’t know about where you are at, but it is light as hell here. Currently a complete stoppage.

First/only/final call for my yard: 1/2" of snow, 1/2" of sleet, 0.2" of zr, topped off by 20 mins of snizzle.

Lookin' pretty good. I will take the under now ofc.

As much as I’m trying to not get bummed by lack of snow seeing obs after obs of snow is...a bummer. 
 

I told myself to enjoy what falls so gotta stick to that. Could be a good idea to go do other stuff for a while. Good luck to those in the same boat!

the warm layer coming in sooner def caught everyone off guard. figured we'd all be good for a few inches before the flip.

Meh, you're allowed to be bummed, frustrated, pissed off.  I am.  It's not like I live in the deep south.  I should be able to get a nice snowstorm or two a year.  This is just complete infuriating nonsense.

Rain here in Eason and 28. I guess it's freezing on elevated surfaces, but its been super light. The drive in was annoying only because of all the folks driving 40 mph on over brined, over salted, wet roads. 

I was getting sleet drizzle(slizzle?) mixed with snizzle and freezing drizzle when I left my house.

I was excited for some frozen precip.  Still holding out hope that the stuff SW hits us.
