Did You See Enough Snow Today? This May Make You Feel Better

The weak system that pushed through today left us with minimal snowfall totals.  Wish we had gotten a little more? Close your eyes and think back two years ago.

The whimpy system that moved over our area today didn't leave too much for snow lovers.  I have to say, I was a little disappointed we didn't see any flakes in DC.  Folks North and West of the metro area did get a bit of snow to, at least, satisfy the "winter wonderland" feeling.  Here's a picture from one of our WeatherBug cameras, earlier this afternoon, in Ijamsville, MD.

Snow totals were slim to none across the region.  Smithsburg, in Frederick County, MD, picked up a whopping two inches (can you sense a little sarcasm from the snow lover here?).  Most other spots, that saw snow, received anywhere from a trace to 1.5 inches.  Here are the latest snowfall reports from the National Weather Service.

I know some people were perfectly content with the little to no accumulations today.  Others were hoping for more.  Regardless of how you feel, let's take a quick trip back memory lane to two years ago, almost to the day, -- SNOWMAGEDON! 

The same areas in Frederick that saw between 1 and 2 inches of snow today were buried under 25 inches of snow two years ago today.  Here's a map of the total snowfall during this storm.

After a bit of reminiscing over the snow two years ago, I think I'm a little more content with the lack of snow in DC today.  That doesn't mean I'm not still hoping for some more snow, but maybe a happy medium between these two.
