ALEXANDRIA, Va. — It happened again, another March snowstorm. Here in the West End, 3¾ inches have accumulated as of noon. It’s white mud though – the concrete driveway and walks are more slusy than snowy. It’s like applesauce.
By the way, spring officially began at 12:15 EDT the previous day.
It may not seem like it, but this is the fourth storm with meaningful accumulation of the 2017-2018 season. I measured 4 inches on December 9 and one inch on January 4. The Presidents Day Saturday storm was not measured because I was driving through it to go skiing in the Poconos the next day.
