Snowmaggedon 2010 reportedly area's 4th largest single storm

In the official readings, this storm is coming in 4th in the list of all-time worst but according to the story on WTOP we in northern Virginia got hit a lot worse than DC. Here’s the totals reported:

Maryland

  • Adams Town – 27 inches
  • Annapolis – 17.6 inches
  • Baltimore – 20 inches
  • BWI Airport – 28 inches
  • Colesville – 40 inches
  • Frostburg – 36 inches
  • Gaithersburg – 25 inches
  • Kensington – 21 inches
  • Olney – 28 inches

D.C.

  • D.C. – 20 inches
  • Reagan National Airport – 17.8 inches

Virginia

  • Burke – 26 inches
  • Dulles – 32 inches
  • Kingstown – 25 inches
  • Leesburg – 35 inches
  • Warrenton – 25 inches

West Virginia

  • Keyser – 25.5 inches
  • Mount Storm – 18 inches

Leesburg and Dulles are closest to me and those figures sound about right. Measurements taken in the neighborhood after the snow stopped seemed to average around 30-31″. Given the depth of the snow I waded through in the back yard while I was checking on the 2 trees I lost, I’d have to say we fell in line with that average pretty nicely.

Now we get to turn our attention to Tuesday when the next one’s supposed to be coming in. This one’s not a repeat of this weekend, I’m hearing, but it’s no light dusting, either. More to come on that as they give us more.
