ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A week of hype for high impact winter storms has been…underwhelming. This morning though, snow and then sleet piled up enough to get “Yardy” out.
Around 12:50 p.m., the precipitation was essentially over. I took my third blog-worthy measurement of the season — a whole 1 inch of snow covered in sleet.
That brings us up to 5 total inches “officially “for 2021 so far. The 10 day forecast after February 18 doesn’t suggest more accumulation either. Still, it’s better than last year’s shutout.
Had it happened a day earlier, we would have had another Pitchers & Catchers Day Storm, like in 2014. That was a good one.
Maybe if it refreezes overnight, I can get some broomball practice in Friday morning.
Not a great winter for meteorologists

If you still use Twitter, my DC Commuter twitter list is useful any time, but even more so when the snow really flies.
Thinking about skiing?
My Mid-Atlantic Commuter Skier Guide is a resource for anyone looking to take a daytrip. I have compiled ski reports over the last decade from resorts throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
I’m undecided about skiing in the time of COVID-19, though it seems to be going better than I anticipated.
