Yeah!!! Don't get to type that very often!!!
13 inches of snow at Reagan National Airport as of 4pm. That breaks record from 1932 for the biggest single snowfall ever measured there in the month of Dec. We're easy.
Wintergreen ski area west of Charlottesville, VA has received 24" for top prize. Massanutten ski area just east of Harrionsburg, VA has received about 18". Canaan Valley, WV also about 18". Whitetail and Liberty ski areas in PA near Gettysburg got about one foot. Totals may go up a few more inches. It had been a slow starting season, but this will jump start things just in time for a huge Christmas week of skiing and riding. Even better, extended cold temps are predicted, good for snowmaking through the week and not much snowmelt.

Hope this thing tracks northwest to bring some to Poconos and beyond.

Driveway Cam is showing what Winchester, Virginia looked like midday today. Upper Driveway Run is a green but requires careful maneuvers between two terrain features: barbecue grill (skier's left) and trash cans (skier's right). Lower Driveway is a blue. It runs smack-dab into the Town and Country Terrain Park at the base. East Headwall (right) and West Headwall (left) are double-black diamonds, open about as frequently as Icicles at Ski Bousquet in Pittsfield MA.

Adjacent Patio Cam reading was 13" at middday. A few inches have fallen since then, with 1-3" more expected in the Shenandoah Valley overnight.

Now if I can just get out of my driveway and onto the main roads ....

20" in Roanoke. Felt like I was back in New Hampshire! Neighbors say the road may be plowed out by Monday. Kinda crazy!

No snow here in Florida, but it was quite a storm. I could have gotten two good windsurfing days out of it. However, my board hardware broke after the NNE session. I missed yesterdays clear sunshine and NW. I hope you guys get in some good, solid skiing for a change. I passed through Washington last St. Patty's day and saw a lot of opportunity up near Langley and the CIA headquarters for BC tele.

I need to get some of the pictures off of my phone of the 2 feet of snow we got just a bit north of Woody. The Blue Ridge is a major storm trap. I did not get out of our street until late sunday, or I would have considered maybe the cleared area under the power lines that cross the state line and the AT North of Rt 9. That is right about where a ski area was planned but never built.

Today would be a good day, but OPM doesn't consider the Eastern Panhandle part of DC Metro area. At least I won't be getting many end user tickets.
