3/12 Event: Winters Last Hurrah at Least East of Mountains


Weather Will

Recommended Posts

Rain changed to sleet then snow around 8AM here in Chevy Chase/Bethesda.  Coming down at a decent clip, sometimes with larger flakes.  About 0.5" now, I'd estimate, covering the grass and cars. Some roads and walkways are covered a bit too.  No real wind yet, though there was a burst of wind very early morning (around 5AM-ish).  Eyballing the wind like @Bob Chill, I'd estimate 5-10 MPH. :lol:  Went out to the Audubon nature center to get some photos, will try to upload some later.  It was so peaceful there with snow falling, nobody else was around.

Definitely more gusty in the last 30min. 

Hmmm... lemme think here a minute.... yeah, OK. Here's what we're gonna do. Go ahead an book a second blizzard for now but leave space in the ledger for a 3rd or 4th. Still early.

I'd personally wait for a few more fake "my lights are flickering" reports

i believed in the snow, but definitely had doubts about the wind.  wind driven snow (while it's snowing) is not our strength.  maybe that changes once the upper level energy approaches.

Missing out on wind is a sacrifice I’m willing to make if it means I keep the power on. Haha

Just can't get the driveway to fully cave. Don't think it's going to happen. Honestly disappointing. I thought the snow would come in like a wall with true blizzard conditions and roads would cave not long thereafter. Rates just aren't there to get it done.
