Snow in December

The aftermath of the storm in December

Janurary Snow

Sunday morning after the Feb. storm

In my part of DC we received around 15 inches during the December blizzard. I a friend reported 2 feet around her house outside of the city.  The snow started Friday and was hardest on Saturday. By Sunday it was over. Monday was a messy day but people were able to get places.

I measured 20 inches after this new storm, but I’m wondering if I picked a shallow area. It wasn’t more than 24 in my neighborhood, but what a difference 5 inches makes!   The streets were messier, the sidewalks in worse shape. The Brookland metro station opened on Tuesday. Schools are still closed.With more snow coming, I don’t expect classes at all this week.

It is interesting that the storms were both Friday evening-Saturday storms.
