Did You See Enough Snow Today? This May Make You Feel Better

The whimpy system that moved over our area today didn't leave too much for snow lovers.{ } I have to say, I was a little disappointed we didn't see any flakes in DC.{ } Folks North and West of the metro area did get a bit of snow to, at least, satisfy the "winter wonderland" feeling.{ } Here's a picture from one of our WeatherBug cameras, earlier this afternoon, in Ijamsville, MD.

Snow totals were slim to none across the region.{ } Smithsburg, in Frederick County, MD, picked up a whopping two inches (can you sense a little sarcasm from the snow lover here?).{ } Most other spots, that saw snow, received anywhere from a trace to 1.5 inches.{ } Here are the latest snowfall reports from the National Weather Service.

I know some people were perfectly content with the little to no accumulations today.{ } Others were hoping for more.{ } Regardless of how you feel, let's take a quick trip back memory lane to two years ago, almost{ }to the day, -- SNOWMAGEDON!{ }

The same areas in Frederick that saw between 1 and 2 inches of snow today were buried under 25 inches of snow two years ago today.{ } Here's a map of the total snowfall during this storm.


After a bit of{ }reminiscing over the snow two years ago, I think I'm a little more content with the lack of snow in{ }DC today.{ } That doesn't mean I'm not still hoping for some more snow, but maybe a happy medium between these two.
