Maybe it's too early to ask, plus we have to figure in how much it stretched, but which area is most affected by this storm? DC? NYC? Parts of New England?
I'm just 20 some miles south of DC; we have 2 feet right now and it's still snowing....I'm not sure how much they have up north...my guess would be more.

I think word was 29 inches at Baltimore Washinton Thurgood Marshall Airport(a few miles south of downtown Baltimore). I am in east Baltimore where it looks like about 2 feet but it is hard to tell with the drifts as the wind was going pretty good. I'll post pictures here in a bit



I am on a snow emergency route which is why you don't see any cars parked as they could end up getting towed. There were some people however who did park further down and are buried in snow, here are another couple pics.

Sorry just the regular here except el nino
A mainly sunny sky. High around 70F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph.
 
Well the darned blizzard has moved on. Official word is 26" but it sure looks like more because of the drifting. Today will be the great dig out, street still not plowed. Meanwhile I put away the candles, flashlights and unwrapped all the water pipes :). The electric never flickered so I had heat, hot water and food, plus internet throughout; the major essentials of life :). My satellite dish also worked throughout, that is usually the first thing to go, so I even had the TDU! Life is good :).
 
Weather wasn't too bad today for my first ride in weeks (sunny, about 50F, wind sweeping in from all directions), what did suck was my form. It wasn't just terrible, it was downright embarrassing!

Ah well, after all this hibernating (which I excel at, if I may say so), I suppose this was to be expected.
 
Our snow is melting quickly here in Northern VA. It's been just over a week since the snow storm and the roads are almost good enough to ride on. We're back to having weather in the 40's and 50's. It's also been raining a bit, all of which is just helping to get rid of the snow. Me is happy.
 
Here in lovely southeastern Michigan (Detroit specifically), yesterday we had unseasonably warm temps and occasional sunshine (50+ degrees) for February! We awoke this morning to a light dusting of snow on our cars and streets and temps in the 30's. February is usually our fiercest month of winter. So far for us it's been a quite mild winter. Unfortunately for me I've been sick the past 2 weeks with only recently a dim light visible at the end the tunnel health wise. I'm hoping to get out on my bike Saturday weather and health permitting considering I recently bought a nice pair of winter cycling boots during one of the local shop's sales.

Now, cycling boots are essential in the Winter. Unless you lived in a pretty dodgy housing estate in south Edinburgh when I did my miles. Oh the *** abuse I got. Still wore them though!!
 
Grumble- grumble... much fog in my area this morning. But by afternoon the fog had cleared and I had seen some actual sunshine for a couple of days now.

While form is still terribly awful I just had to go out for a ride. And lo and behold - the legs didn't feel nearly as terrible anymore thanks to the sunshine! :D

Haha when I answer this question it is already spring. The weather became warmer nice. Spring is a season for cycling, neither cold nor hot. But there will be annoying catkins. I have an appointment with friends on weekends to ride it!
 
Still cold, windy and rainy (but we did have 3, yes, 3 dry days last week!!) on the Forth Riviera. Forecast is much the same for next week, luckily the clocks don't go forward tonight, oh wait...
 
Why do I even look at the daily forecast?! :confused: :mad: Zero percent chance of rain, nothing on the radar...soaking Fn wet ride!! :mad: The two questions are: 1) why do I continue to look at the daily forecast, 2) why do they bother because they are really poor at predicting when there are actually weather events in the area.

Wasn't it Lesslie Nielson who said that there is a 50% chance, but only a 10% chance of that?
