  1. Review of the Feb 12-13 2014 snowstorm The experts like Bob Chill on the forum were watching this storm on the models from about a week out. The Euro showed the storm at least 5 days out. We had been burned by the "big snow" the weekend before, the unicorn snow, which turned into three inconsequential pieces of energy that ended up breaking our hearts. Thus we were honestly skeptical of this developing storm. We regularly get our hearts broken as storm appear on the models then they always find a way to screw DC. The models showed this storm from five days out. We remembered that all the big storms that hit DC had always been shown from 5 days out. This made some of us begin to hope, but there was always this strong healthy skepticism that comes from getting screwed over often by snows in DC winter after winter after winter. By Sunday night, three days out from the start of the event, I was watching the models too. I was avidly reading the forums. I forgot everything else in my life for about 4 days lol. Monday night the models were coming up with fantastic solutions for DC and vicinity. It was 'happy hour' and incredible euphoria reigned on the forums as we all imagined what 2.5 inches of water and two feet of snow would look like in our backyards. Of course the 12z runs brought us back to hard reality as they showed not so enthusiastic solutions. By Tuesday night we were all adjusting our expectations hard, zwyts setting the bar at 5-6 inches of snow. We were absolutely livin' and dyin' by model runs. We were high on cocaine then out on the ledge as the models thrashed out a solution. The damn good for shyte gfs was an outlier that we were all concerned might well turn out to verify. In the end the moderate solution worked out. By Wednesday afternoon we could see that we would get about 6 to 10 inches. Warnings were hoisted from Georgia to Maine. Over an inch of freezing rain fell in Georgia and South Carolina where civil emergencies were declared. NWS was uncertain about pulling the trigger on warnings for the lwx forecast area. The Nam won them over by 10pm Wed night and they hoisted warnings for 6 to 10 inches of snow. At one point they increased the forecast to 10-14 inches. DT and Justin Berk developed fantastic snow maps that verified! I wa sso impatient and fed up with the NWS being reluctant to hoist a WSW for my county that I posted a sarcastic message in the forums concerning NWS about sadistic forecasters holding back our winter storm warning but NWS warning everyone else, that was promptly removed by a mod since we were in storm mode lol. I was so concerned about heavy wet snows on cold roads that I rushed thru my workout Wednesday afternoon and missed several lebs as well as missing lots of exercises. My friends watched with amusement as I thoroughly panicked because I was scared to death to be caught out on the roads in heavy wet snow on cold roads. By 5pm I had fled home in total fear, because I had had my head so deep up the models' a$$ that I totally failed to realize that the 25 degree high temp on Wednesday would keep the snowfall from being wet lmao. Between 4pm and 430 the dewpoints suddenly increased from 8 degrees, to 15 degrees. My panic intensified. The column was moistening and tons of heavy wet snow would suddenly hit the roads - and I was still out on them! My panic increased as I saw virga moving over Dale City as early as 330pm. OMG it's gonna hit EARLY! I went out in the back yard and set up rulers and one MASSIVE snow stake with inches marked out in three inch increments with bright colored duct tape. I set duct tape up at the one foot level on the chain link fence posts and also made thick black marks at the 12 inch level on the front yard fence posts. I measured features in the back yard and noticed that the car undercarriage was 7 inches above the driveway, I oiled all my square edged construction grade shovels. I devoured an entire carton of soft chocolate chip cookies to pile on the carbs since I was about to dig Dale City out of the snow all by myslef. Well, the cookies promptly put me to sleep and I damn near missed the beginning of the storm at 7pm lmao. The damn snow finally reached the ground at 706pm in Dale City. Twenty minutes before, everyone in the lwx cfa was reporting snow and I was close to panic. The temps fell to 22 degrees. The roads were cold as hell. Every flake stuck. Roads and sidewalks turned instantly white. Light snow continued for a couple hours. -----------------------------------
  2. 2 inch snow on January 3 2014 --------------------------------------------
  3. 5 inch snow Tuesday January 21 2014 I am writing this on Jan 31. We have seen 11 days of snow cover since this snow fell. It has been very cold since. In the morning, temps fell to 29 degrees from the night before. The snow may have started at 9am. I did not wake up til 1030am. I saw some light snow that briefly became moderate. We picked up half an inch by 1030am that accumulated to an inch then we got stuck with pixie dust that fell thickly. Temps fell through the 20s all afternoon. The only reason the pixie dust did accumulate as much as it did, was because we had such COLD temps throughout the snow. By 2pm it was 25 degrees, by 5pm it was 22 degrees. We got pixie dust for hours this afternoon. Maryland got snow bands all afternoon because most of the frontogenetical forcing was over them, just as models had indicated about 6 hours before the start of the snowstorm. The RAP and HRRR tend to pick these details up very close to the start of a storm. The green banding over Maryland finally expanded and became a green blob that started to move southeastward. We finally got a green band with pretty sick rates around 645pm. Snow became outright heavy with 2 inch an hour rates. By the time the green band finally hit us, the pixie dust had accumulated to 2.5 inches with 20 degree temps by 630pm. When the green band hit us, temps fell to 17 degrees with 15 dewpoints. By 815pm when the band went by and snow tapered off, we had gotten 5 inches of snow. This is the biggest snow we have seen in three years, since the psuhoffman snow in Jan 2011 which dumped 5.5 inches of heavy wet snow on us which broke a lot of pine branches and left many pine saplings forever bowed over. This was one of the coldest snows we had seen since the 1980s, until a surprise snow on Jan 28-29 which snowed at 9 degrees which is the coldest snowstorm I have ever personally experienced. This snowstorm had some winds as well. Not only was it running in the low 20s for much of the storm but we had N winds which gusted to 37 mph which blew much snow off the roofs and along the ground which produced drifts and near whiteout conditions at times. It was like a milkshake froth lol. That made this particular storm very fun. On Monday Jan 27 we had a warm spike. That morning at 5am it rose to 36 degrees. Later that morning we hit 55 degrees, probably around 930am or so until the polar front smashed into us around 1030am from reports and we fell to 41 degrees by 1230pm when I woke up. It got most of the areal snowpack, about 75 percent of it. By 330pm we had fallen to 31 degrees with 5 degree dews and NNW wind gusts to 35 mph. The Jan 21 5 inches and Jan 28 2 inches tended to overlap somewhat with limited snowpack areal coverage by the time the Jan 28 2 inch surprise hit us but those 2 new inches reestablished the snowpack for at least another day. By Jan 31 we had had 11 days of patchy to full areal snow cover, with a total of 23 days including Jan 31. We just might manage to pull out one more day tomorrow. ------------------------------------
  4. Surprise 2 inch snow late Jan 28-early Jan 29 2014 A storm was developing along an arctic boundary that stalled in North Carolina. This same boundary extended into the northern Gulf of Mexico and into Texas. There was horrific ice and sleet and snow all along this boundary F from Austin OBX. There was snow farther north as well. SE VA and parts of NE NC got 8-10 inches of snow. Late in the day today, models indicated the precip shield would move farther north into N VA. Last night, and early on the 28th at 3am I saw this SW to NE line of snow form from DC to the TN/NC state border. It was not snowing but the radar indicated it. It first showed up at 8pm on the 27th, then again at 3am the next morning. By 5am the line had gotten wider. By noon there was rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow bands down in NC, SE VA. There was a band of snow over C VA and another over N VA. It was cloudy all day here with highs only around 14 degrees. The wind made it feel like -5. It was very COLD. Mid level clouds lowered and thickened all afternoon. By 6pm the band over N VA had expanded in areal extent. At that time the temps were 13 degrees with dewpoints near -8. I thought it would not snow because of all the dry air. In fact I made a ridiculous statement on American to the effect that we would not see snow because of the dry air. Well, I was dead WRONG. Models had shifted the precip north some, and a shortwave was set to move across VA overnight, and though we only had a tenth of an inch of water equivalent to work with, it did snow, beginning at 930pm. The snow stuck, from flake 1. The ground was frozen and roads were cold. Snow fell for five hours, moderate at times. The dewpoint rose to 6 above zero while the dry bubd temps fell from 12 degrees, to 9 degrees. This is the first time I have ever seen snow fall at 9 degrees. It was a historic moment. We ended up with 2 inches of fluffy, glittery snow that turned the lawns white again and covered the roads and all surfaces. It was 9 degrees and 20 to 1 snow to water ratios were in play which meant that one tenth of an inch of water translated to 2 inches of fluffy snow. The winds were light. The snow was easy to measure. I had not expected snow from this SE VA storm. It was a total surprise. It was fun to watch the snow fall and accumulate at only 9 degrees. It brought my seasonal totals to 12 inches. That surpasses the 2011-12 and 2012-13 winters, and it is about the same as the 2010-11 winter when we got around 12 inches on the season. The snow ended at 245am. The low was 8. There were a lot of happy people in northern Virginia, Maryland and Delaware from this snow. Many of us had not expected it, though we wanted it. The day after this snow, some of it melted, it was only a fluffy 2 inch snow, it was in the teens but it still blew or melted. The day after that more of it melted. The north facing lawns looked spectacular with over three inches of snow ( they had snow from the last 5 inch snow on Jan 21). Even the Glendale Valley sidewalks stayed snow covered. Wed Jan 29 we hit 24, low 8 Thursday Jan 30 we hit 31, low19. On Fri Jan 31 more areal snow melted because we hit 45 degrees but the ground was still so cold and frozen that snow held on in shaded places and to the north of sun blocking objects like houses. We pulled out at least three days of snow cover after this 2 inch snow, today Jan 31 being the 3rd day. ---------------------------
  5. 2013-2014 winter weather. Posted in the December Banter Thread 2, Page 25, post 874 http://www.americanwx.com/bb/index.php/topic/41896-december-banter-thread-2/?p=2533314 State of the snowpack - December 11 2013 Its barely mid December and Woodbridge already has 2 inches of snow and sleet on grassy surfaces. The snowpack is composed of an inch of glaciated snow and sleet, with another inch of compacted, frozen snow on top. The ground is surface frozen which supports the snow/sleetpack. An anomalous frigid airmass over the eastern two thirds of the US will likely preserve this snow/sleetpack for at least part of the week. Plows have piled up piles of sleet and snow as much as three feet tall. Tonight these will freeze fairly hard as temps fall to near 20 degrees. If this anomalously cold pattern continues, we could hold on to snowpack into next week. This is early for northeastern Virginia and is not indicated by climatology. This weather pattern is much more representative of late January. -------------------- This is the post to use for the description of the Dec 8-9 2013 snow/sleet/zr storm. http://www.americanwx.com/bb/index.php/topic/41909-winter-storm-128-9-observationsnowcasting-ii/?p=2524265 Sunday December 8 2013 snow and sleet storm. It had two parts. The first part was snow and sleet from 7am to 2pm which then mixed with ZR. We had FZDZ into the evening then the 2nd part of the storm was freezing rain which steadily fell from 9pm to 5am. The temperature during the day was in the 20s and rose to 30, where it remained into 4am. The snow and sleet accumulated an inch. The afternoon ZR then iced up the snow/sleetpack and soaked it. The ZR lin the evening into the overnight accreted a third of an inch of ice over the existing snowpack. The ice accumulation brought down branches and caused power outages. Pine tree branches were the hardest hit by the ice. I saw pine branches at least 6 inches in diameter that had been snapped off. The snow and sleet in the first part of the storm readily accumulated on roads as well as grassy areas. The sleet piled up on roads despite initial road temperatures in the low 40s. Models progged temperatures to rise above freezing at 9Z which is 4am EDT Dec 9. The temperatures stayed at or below freezing until after sunrise. The high on the 9th was only 34 degrees. It stayed cloudy. Some ice melted but much of it remained on the trees and on roads, sidewalks, cars, fences and bushes well into the day. The third of an inch of ice was difficult to remove from cars, particularly if the snow and sleet had been removed before the nighttime icing started. I missed getting to go to the R and get my Bailey and opp some lebs. It would have been a very good day to Bailey and get AD cycles because there would have been very few ppl around. Jon said they closed at 3pm Sunday. Tuesday December 10 2013 snowstorm Models had indicated 4-6 inches of snow which was supposed to start at 7am, perhaps mixing with sleet at the onset. The snow started around 7ish. I woke up at 830am and noticed about a half inch of snow on roads and grass, then heard the ping of sleet mixed in with the snow. We also had a period of very light snow and sleet between 830am and 1030am. Then the snow picked up and fell moderately through at least 1130am but the boundary layer temps were marginal, around 32. The upper level low was moving very fast and the snow was over by noon. I slept til 230pm then saw the sun was out, temps rose to 38 degrees and the snow on the roads and sidewalks melted but we had picked up an inch and a half od fresh snow on cartops and on top of the inch of glacier from 2 days ago. We've had three days of snow cover - The snow/sleet and ZR that fell Sunday Dec 8 stuck around thru Dec 9 into this event which added another inch and a half of snow for three days so far of snow cover. This week is progged to be pretty cold. We might hold on to the snowpack for another few days. Higher elevations such as where Trixie lives near CharlesTown got 4 inches of snow. FDK got about 5-6 inches of snow. They got more banding, just like the Rap had indicated. Jan 28 2014 It is like atmospheric magic. A meteorologist could not have co-located everything at once at the same time over one area. Tanking mid level heights with the incoming PV max, the most divergent portion of that upper jet coupling, strong 600-800 frontal forcing, strong low level moist theta-e advection into the frontal circulation, and extreme convergence into the low level cyclone.

Fairly steep ML lapse rates combining with increase low-level WAA and moisture transport and increasing theta-e is really helping to not only keep things unstable but helping to destabilize the atmosphere even further!

BRING IT ON!!! Hell Yeah!! Lovin' this atypical La Nina! Dec 15: High 32 Low 9 Dewpoint 0 degrees Dec 16: High 25 Low 13 Dewpoint 12 then 20 in the snow; Dec 16: 2 inches snow, Low 20s conds. Profound surface frigidization evident; many ponds frozen. Don't try to ice skate on 'em yet though Save yourself a lot of unnecessary worry - If the model solution you want (the snowy solution) is complicated - It likely won't verify. That being said..this is a very fragile setup. I've said it several times. Somebody can sneeze near the MS river and mess up the phase. earthlight Get over the bust. There is potential on the horizon but make no mistake...winter patterns tend to repeat themselves. We could easily get screwed again this winter the exact same way. Get tough and grow some skin. We are going to need it.

He can't handle being criticized. He's arrogent and condescending but when he's wrong, he runs for the hills. It goes both ways. I mean every Met is wrong from time to time. It's human nature. But DT will openly mock people for not understanding his thoughts and when it's wrong he does not know how to admit it. I think he's entertaining and I never really had problems with him. But as an outsider looking at what he goes through, he reaps what he sows sometimes. He did it on ne.weather, WWBB, Eastern and now here.

  16. Part Deux British petroleum is a f#cking joke. Tony Hayward, BP CEO, should be summarily shot. The mood among Americans has turned decidedly fugly as the economic impacts are already staggering and Americans get the feeling that BP doesn't give a damn one way or the other. Obama had better get on the ball or it's going to get extremely ugly fast. Libs can spin this all they want but there is no way to cover up a disaster this severe. Own up, put up or shut the hell up - permanently. BP claimed in 2008 that they could contain an oil spill TEN TIMES the size of the one presently in the Gulf. What a bunch of arrogant morons. Their stock is going straight down as the public begins to realize that all BP ever has to offer is a lot of hot air and lies and obfuscation.

Children and pregnant women are especially at risk. Medical officers are already studying illnesses among oil recovery workers in the Gulf. -------- Swimming in crude-slicked waters is an unsavory prospect at best and one that is most definitely unhealthful, although the molecular mechanics of why crude is so dangerous to humans are poorly understood, say toxics researchers. Crude oil is a complex mixture of petrochemicals that includes all the most dangerous chemicals in gasoline, plus plenty of others -- clearly not something you want to be coated in. "A lot of those chemicals are neurotoxins, which means they affect the brain," said Tracey Woodruff, an associate professor and director of the Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment at the University of California at San Francisco. Dizziness, euphoria, nausea, blurry vision and headaches are a few of the short-term effects of such compounds as benzene, toluene, and xylenes, which are also found in gasoline. The symptoms can be a lot like a very bad case of alcohol poisoning, she said, which also foul up the workings of the nervous system. There are long-term health dangers too. Benzene, in particular, has been tied to adult leukemia and other cancers. Benzene does this by entering cells and damaging DNA material, Woodruff said, although the specifics are not well understood. What makes crude oil potentially even more dangerous, however, is that it contains so many toxic chemicals that can all attack the body at once, Woodruff explained. "The combination can, in many cases, have more effect," Woodruff said. "It's like getting hit from different sides -- right hook, left hook and on top of the head." This sort of multiple attack is less well understood, as most studies tend to focus on one chemical at a time. Another variable is how differently the toxins can affect different sorts of people. "It definitely would be worse for children to be exposed," said Woodruff. Infants and even unborn children could also be seriously harmed because the neurotoxins can interfere with brain development, she said. Many of the toxins in crude oil can be absorbed directly through the skin or lungs, so the only way to avoid them is to keep away or wear protective gear like specially-designed respirators, boots, gloves and suits. Workers already involved in the clean up are particularly at risk, of course, and they are already reporting symptoms of all sorts, including physical injuries from slipping on the oil, plus heat and fatigue, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). A NIOSH team of two industrial hygienists (specialists in workplace hazards) and two medical officers arrived in Louisiana on June 2 to evaluate illnesses and injuries among groups of offshore workers. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has also agreed to provide medical reports of seven previously hospitalized fishermen for the study. "NIOSH is working with OSHA, Coast Guard, and others to collect and analyze data about the exposures that the Deepwater Horizon response workers may be encountering in various stages of activity (offshore and onshore), and symptoms that response workers are reporting," said Fred Blosser, a spokesman for NIOSH. "We're working intensely, and data collection/analysis are in progress. This will give us a basis for assessing potential hazards in various operations, and making recommendations." As for the handful of journalists who have decided to throw caution to the wind and swim in the muck unprotected, it's just unwise, Woodruff explained. "It seems like something even the birds are trying to avoid."

Their faces may be burning, their lips also. They are going to need to be detoxed/ chelated with some significant medicines OR they will likely face neurological damage and increased serious illness. They will be SENSITIVE FOREVER once they reach their body burden for toxicity. Telling them not to inhale it is wise but absurd. they need to be wearing respirators if they cleaning it up. NO ONE is telling them about what they face as a result of exposure. No one is protecting them nor educating them so that they may protect themselves. I happen to know because I was exposed to a vat of heating oil left outside by a slumlord years back. I got very sick. I was tested and underwent a lengthy protocol. Oil is so toxic it is beyond frightening that this continues unabated. I hope that any worker who gets sick retains counsel. The US gov. is dropping the ball. OSHA and other Health Regulatory agencies are probably clueless. It took a specialist to discover why my face felt was burning , my lips on fire. Nausea, headaches, radiating pain and burning in odd places , respiratory distress, gastro intestional distress." norkas 7 hours ago (3:07 PM) 64 Fans "If it can be verified that BP will fire anyone who has a respirator or protective clothing it is time for all of us to contribute in a movement to have this person fired and start will an aggressive PR campaign against this company on this subject." plaidsportcoat 20 hours ago (1:54 AM) 127 Fans Read this about how BP will FIRE workers who wear respirators: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/riki-ott/at-what-cost-bp-spill-res_b_578784.html plaidsportcoat 20 hours ago (1:40 AM) 127 Fans "IF CLEANUP WORKERS SHOW UP WITH PROTECTIVE CLOTHING ON - THEY ARE FIRED. Call your Senators, Congress people on this! And call the White House on that, too. The OSHA regulations have been stripped so badly that they do not require people to use protective clothing around OIL!! Call Obama on that - and tell him to get his OSHA people on this. The workers are desperate for work since their entire income has been demolished so they won't wear the protective gear. I can't understand that particular mentality, it seems so suicidal since they already can see lots of people having respiratory effects from simply the FUMES, much less wading and boating in it." At What Cost? BP Spill Responders Told to Forgo Precautionary Health Measures in Cleanup http://www.huffingtonpost.com/riki-ott/at-what-cost-bp-spill-res_b_578784.html EXCERPT: Venice, Louisiana -- Local fishermen hired to work on BP's uncontrolled oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico are scared and confused. Fishermen here and in other small communities dotting the southern marshes and swamplands of Barataria Bay are getting sick from the working on the cleanup, yet BP is assuring them they don't need respirators or other special protection from the crude oil, strong hydrocarbon vapors, or chemical dispersants being sprayed in massive quantities on the oil slick. Fishermen have never seen the results from the air-quality monitoring patches some of them wear on their rain gear when they are out booming and skimming the giant oil slick. However, more and more fishermen are suffering from bad headaches, burning eyes, persistent coughs, sore throats, stuffy sinuses, nausea, and dizziness. They are starting to suspect that BP is not telling them the truth. BP 'systemic failure' endangers Gulf cleanup workers http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcclatchy/20100529/pl_mcclatchy/3519831;_ylt=AkQ1lIJ7VVd6DRBzGwWkKqeyFz4D;_ylu=X3oDMTJnZjMydmw1BGFzc2V0A21jY2xhdGNoeS8yMDEwMDUyOS8zNTE5ODMxBGNwb3MDMgRwb3MDMTQEc2VjA3luX3RvcF9zdG9yeQRzbGsDYnAzOXN5c3RlbWlj EXCERPT: WASHINGTON — Federal regulators complained in a scathing internal memo about "significant deficiencies" in BP's handling of the safety of oil spill workers and asked the Coast Guard to help pressure the company to address a litany of concerns. The memo, written by a Labor Department official earlier this week and obtained by McClatchy , reveals the Obama administration's growing concerns about potential health and safety problems posed by the oil spill and its inability to force BP to respond to them. BP said it's deployed 22,000 workers to combat the spill, which experts now estimate has spewed 37 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico . At this point, much of the oil remains offshore. David Michaels , the assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health who wrote the memo, raised the concerns on Tuesday, the day before seven oil spill workers on boats off the coast of Louisiana were hospitalized after they experienced nausea, dizziness and headaches. Late Friday, the disaster response team sent four more workers to the hospital by helicopter, including two with chest pains. In his memo to Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen , Michaels said his agency has witnessed numerous problems at several work sites and staging areas through the Gulf Coast region. "The organizational systems that BP currently has in place, particularly those related to worker safety and health training, protective equipment, and site monitoring, are not adequate for the current situation or the projected increase in clean-up operations," Michaels said in the memo.

  20. Well you got 70s cranking, ice sliding, pile walking, drift shoveling snow obsessed Jeb back again for sure (and then some LOL!). The Winter Olympics aren't going to help either. So many things ongoing at the same time PLUS this unbelievable 500 year block pattern. I know it truly marks me as a hopeless weenie case just to be saying this, but I hope that southern storm tracks a bit north of NE overnight and we wake up to 4 inches and steady snow. I'm greedy as all heck. We don't get blocking like this every year. I'd be the same if I visited Jay Peak in Vermont too. I'd be hungry for EVERY snowstorm. I'd want 3 feet so I could dig snow to my heart's content. Also I hope that arctic clipper tracks south of us, slows down and goes all-out with 1.3 inches qpf with crazy 30-1 snow to water ratios so we pick up 39 inches!! In this 500 year blocking pattern ANYTHING AT ALL is possible!! Tip mentioned on the SNE thread that the AO is so negative that it is pushing the envelope of what is possible in Earth's atmosphere, that there are so many negative polar indices that they (the SNE'ers) will need to wait five weeks for anything to change!!!!!!!!!!! He said this pattern is so profound that there has been nothing like it since before technology settled on this continent!! He mentioned that this blocking is forcing a microclimate along the Eastern Coast that will persist for a YEAR!!! MAYBE THIS WILL BECOME SEMIPERMANENT!!! Maybe this is what the 'Hide the Decline' bullshyte was trying to cover up!! I hope so!!! I have always wanted to experience the Little Ice Age lol. This pattern is so great and there is SO MUCH SNOW in Dale City that I am nearly in tears with happiness and gratitude! Some of the streets in my city have four foot snow berms along the sides of the roads! The Central Ridge on the southside of Potomac Mills Mall has HUGE TALL plowed piles!!! The snowpack here is so deep that I am actually having trouble jebwalking in it and am being forced to walk in the streets. Parking in the subdivisions is a major disastah; people are too lazy to shovel a small cramped niche form their cars so they just park 'em right in the street!! This is what I enjoy and why I want another 2-3 feet of snow!! Another thing I absolutely adore is the fact that so many lanes on the major thoroughfares are blocked by huge snow berms! It develops a whole new meaning to Blocking lol! It's so fun to drive those streets!! The same goes for the subdivisions!! I want even more snow so bad! I love this winter! This winter is the winter of our dreams, the season when not only will your best snow weenie dreams come gloriously and wonderfully true, but be fulfilled beyond your wildest imaginings, often just when you least expect it!!

Ohioans..please feel free to post http://www.easternuswx.com/bb/index.php?showtopic=216956 THE ABOVE THREAD CONTAINS MY State of the Snowpack - 730pm Dec 26 2009 POST State of the Snowpack - 730pm Dec 26 2009 http://www.easternuswx.com/bb/index.php?sh...t&p=4374826 We have just been deluged by about 1.7 inches of rain in a 47 degree environment. We now have about 50 percent snow coverage, with about 2-3 inches average snow depth. There's a lot of standing water on lawns and the snow is VERY slushy. We just managed to eke out an 8TH consecutive day of snow cover. I am shocked that we actually still have ANY snowpack at all after all that rain in the upper 40s last night. Snowpack continues to melt slowly because we are still at 42 degrees, but the skies are clearing which should allow for some cooling into the upper 20s. Hopefully we can get some freezing of the remaining snowpack. It's amazing how many snowpiles there are left! There is a 5 to 6 foot tall plowed snow pile at Greenwood Drive and Dale Blvd in Dale City AFTER the rain. It is easy to see that we had a major snow even after most of the ambient snow (the snow on lawns) has melted, because of all the snow piles. They are not only evident at the mall and at most shopping centers, but also in the subdivisions. Next up is tomorrow and Monday. The bad news is the sunshine and highs near 50 degrees tomorrow; the good news is mid 20s tomorrow night then Monday should only hit 40 with a low Monday night near 20!!!!!!! Yeah baby!!! Let's FREEZE those piles of snow but good!!! I'll still be sorrowing after my beloved 20 inch snowpack though. My shoveled piles are still nearly 2 feet tall. The sunshine and 50 degrees tomorrow will likely wipe out all the remaining snowpack. It'll take a good bite out of the snow piles too, but then it starts to cool off thank G-d. It's on to the next storm as modeling begins to develop another snow threat out to next weekend!!!
