Yeah. I was disappointed. Doing the "shovel test" in 6 or 7 spots on my patio, I got an avg depth of about 10 inches. That was the low end of the forecast (10-15"). I hoped for more. I went to Queens today, looks like they got even less.

I think what made it so much of a big deal is that the mid-atlantic is not use to this. Sure they get snow and a snowstorm of 5-7 inches once or twice a year. But not this. 20 inches and some received over 30 inches in Virginia. I think that's a big deal anywhere IMO and DC is not use to that. Back in 08, three years after I moved to DC, somebody told me we are due for a big one and we got it on Saturday.

Wow, you guys got 10 inches in Jersey City?
That's more than the 7 inches I got in Hackensack. We got below the amount expected.

I was really looking forward to at least a foot of snow, now I have to go to school tomorrow!

Most of the school districts in Suffolk county on Long island are closed tomorrow. It seems like Suffolk got a lot more than here in Nassau county.

It's going to be a royal pain parking tomorrow at work in the city. The cars don't move, so the snow doesn't get plowed near the sidewalks. You have to drive over and over the snow in order to get into the spot. The area I work in is pretty suburban-like considering it's the city, and there aren't too many cars parked on the side...so I'm hoping there will be some spots that don't have snow.

I've noticed that Chicago seems to get more snow than the Northeast on average, but you guys tend to get your snow in a few huge bursts, while we tend to get 2-3" at a time maybe 5 times a year with the one big snowfall of 8 to maybe 10" at the most. I've been here 9 years, and we've never even come close to ever getting 15-20" of snow at one time. I heard the city did about 10-11 years ago, and it was a huge deal.

So far we're still snow-free this year.

Pictures from mrboltonhill in the Snowy B'more thread. Of course, this was only in the beginning half of the storm, but still, you get the idea of how pretty it looks! At least to me!!

So, still nothing in the North East.

Nothing at all?

People posting photos in this thread are in locations from Maryland through Massachusetts. Are none of those places northeastern enough for you?
