The Blizzard of 2010 for Washington, DC

Snow started lightly at 10am yesterday and picked up last night.    The final snow tally was 34" here in Ashburn in this blizzard of 2010.

UPDATES on The Blizzard of 2010 in Washington, DC Area.  The Tuesday after we received 34" we got another 10" in Ashburn.  44" of snow in five days.  During the 10" second snow, the wind was gusting to 50mph with blizzard conditions.  Snow has been on the ground here in Ashburn since the December 5th five inch snow and will be here on March 5th barring the mother of all warm stretches.  Washington, DC broke the 100 year old snow record of 1898-1899 already....    We also set a record where there was snow on the ground constantly from December 5th through March 5th.....

Below is the front of our house still early on Saturday after about 22 hours of snow with another 8 hours more coming that day.

Below is a view of our backyard.

My late uncle Stanley "Tat" Thompson had a great phrase for this type of blizzard:

"The forecast is CLEAR and STILL.   Snow CLEAR up to your A$$ and STILL coming!" :-)

My youngest son Tim learned how to run my John Deere DE 924 9hp snow blower today.

Below is a picture of my beautiful bride of 26.5 years standing out in the snow in our front yard.
