Blizzard 2010

The National Weather Service posted a Winter Storm Warning (heavy snow with blizzard conditions) for Washington, DC, and the metropolitan area starting 10 a.m. ET, Friday, Feb. 5, until 10 p.m. ET, Saturday, Feb. 6. This unusually severe storm for the area started on time and stopped around 4 PM, Saturday afternoon. Parts of Northern VA, Maryland, and DC are covered with 20 – 30 inches of snow. Newspapers were not delivered and U. S. Postal delivery was suspended on Saturday. More than 100,000 people are without electricity. The temperature has dropped to 22 degrees Fahrenheit with a low of 14 expected tonight. Tomorrow is expected to be a cold, but sunny day. We will be shoveling snow clearing driveways and sidewalks.

This snow storm is our fourth and most severe this winter. For the past several years, we’ve not gotten more than a few inches of snow each season. This year the total is already approximately 50 inches with a chance of more snow predicted for next week.

Today was enjoyable staying inside watching the snow fall. I took several pictures looking through the windows. The one I posted tonight was taken from my living room window.
