Post your SNOW TOTALS here!

* 4:35pm UPDATE:  Snow began tapering off past hour, but still coming down, although at slower rate.  Most areas will see generally light snow through about 6pm.  After that, mainly flurries, and then could see another period of non-accumulating light snow or freezing drizzle  after midnight as the finishing touch on this storm.  Grand totals show quite a variation based on your posts…from around 7-8″ up to 13-14″.  In general, metro area will wind up with roughly a foot, but we’ll see what the official tally comes in at from RIC later.  Thanks for all your posts!  Jim Duncan

Please post your snow totals/observations here.  We’ll use them to help verify forecasts and we’ll be using them on air.  Please include your location in your email.  Stay safe today and enjoy the snow!

You’ll notice the comments now appear from newest to oldest.  That’ll make it easier to see newest snow reports come in.

    14.5″ in the Westend just off of Westend Drive!

  4. Sam says:

    At 5:30 a.m. Sunday, I had just over 14″ at 7°F. This is two blocks northeast of Saint Mary’s Hospital in Henrico County. I chuckle when I think that Byrd Field represents weather for this area. It is a large, flat, and open field near a moderating body of water. I am always colder than the Field in Winter and always warmer in Summer. Amazes me that the National Weather Service does not have more than one observatory in an area as diverse as Central Virginia.

    Glen Allen, 23060, near the intersection of Staples Mill Road and I-295: Four measurements with a yardstick——two each in the open space of my front and back lawn——show a consistent accumulation of 13 inches.

  35. eLiTe J says:

    Also, it seems like the ”bulls eye” area that was south from petersburg to emporia got a lot less totals than originally projected. Feels like the Bulls eye moved right up to chesterfield through hanover!

  36. eLiTe J says:

    14.5 inches of snow here in Midlothian, Virginia! Still coming down! With another band inbound!

  45. Kevin says:

    Bellvue – just North of the Diamond – 13 inches.

    Just started again (9:00) and the radar looks like it may produce another inch or so.

  46. Matt says:

    What a snowstorm! At this rate, we will end up having more snow than some parts of the northeast by the end of winter!

  47. David says:

    Skipwith Rd & Forest Ave in Henrico: 12″

  48. Mike says:

    Still falling lightly here-we are in the woods down next to Craney Island Farms(near 295/301). Snow started this morning about 5:30…total here at the end of the Giles Farm Road is 13″. Hope we beat that total in the next storm!

    From Highland Springs VA. 12 inches here and still snowing a bit, can’t wait to see the actual totals from Richmond Airport beings I live right down the street! It’s been a fun but messy day!

  51. Mike says:

    Any ideas why the storm hit further north than forecast? It definitely caught people off guard in South Jersey, Delaware area. Definitely a pretty big snow for most of Virginia, and a cold snow at that. Too bad we still are only half done with winter. Bring on spring please. 🙂

    • Matt says:

      I would be very interested to understand why it did hit further north at the last minute when everyone was thinking of a more southerly track. Still snowing lightly in short pump (a little moderate at times).

    • wxdavid says:

      it did NOT really MOVE north per se… the 850 Low came off the northeast coast of NC stronger so it was able to drive the precip shield INRO DC SBY DOV and s NJ

      • JB says:

        just goes to show that mother nature will always ‘outsmart’ weather predictions, especially when it comes to winter storms here in mid-atlantic area….

        good news is that there’s less than 50 days until 1st day of spring….

  52. Snow Queen says:

    Hey Jim and Andrew–You guys did a great job on forecasting this one. I am sure you both are exhausted. I hope there is a little time for some rest for both of you now. Thank you for your hard work.

  53. sid says:

    14″ West End Drive in Mid-West End Richmond

  57. kevin says:

    Check out the radar filling in from that upper level energy coming through. Snowing pretty good near 288 and rt 10.
    Also check out the latest GFS run for next Friday/ Saturday and DGEX snowcover map. Looks like we could do this again as temps keep trending down. Any feedback on this ?

    • nbc12weather says:

      WAY premature to be concerned about this. GFS 18z (typically unreliable run) only model agressively showing this. Euro showing rain. We’ll see next couple days.
      Jim D.

  96. JC says:

    Out of curiosity, why do you use RIC as the official measurement? It always seems they are very low compared to the rest of Metro.

    • Matt says:

      Yea the RIC scale must be different . They must use some other system of measuremen. Because the totals out of there are always wrong.

      • wxdavid says:

        to let you know how wrong the richmond snow total it is… you the nearest location that has 7 inches of snow as the offical total is more thsn 100 miles away

      • EricWG says:

        It’s nice to know that the offical numbers are so accurate. Let’s hope they don’t base anything important off those numbers.

      • erica says:

        i wonder the same thing when they broadcast their totals, i live 3min from the airport and everytime i measure what i have, they have something totally different

    • Angela says:

      Weird, we live at the exact same area and we measured the lowest at 14″ here on Poplar Forest at the corner of Ridgefield pkwy and N. Gayton.

      We measured 6 different areas to try to get an exact measure. Maybe it has to do with the number of trees in a yard… weird!

  100. familygal89 says:

    Between Chester and Colonial Heights we have a measured 9 inches of SNOW at 5pm on January 30, 2010!

  102. Angela says:

    14″ Here In Far West End – N.Gayton & Ridgefield Parkway.

  127. brandon stewart says:

    its 4:00 pm here in church road, western dinwiddie county the snow is tapering off and our snow total is at 7 inches that was measured in a wide open area on a paved driveway so i think postings of 8 9 10 inches north of here is rediculous sticking a ruler out your back door and measuring right at the house is very inaccurate but hey….!!

  128. Scott says:

    Andrew,

    Any wrap-around with this low? The NWS seems to think we’ll see another brief shot of snow tonight (10pm to 2amish) as the low reforms off the Carolina coast. What’s your expert opinion on that?

    Scott

  135. Jeremy says:

    3:30 p.m. measurement near Nuckols & I-295 near Short Pump.

    13″ inches total accumulation.

    Measurements are taken about 30 feet from house on a deck. I placed two white plates on a large table last night and use one to measure total accumulation and the other one to clear off for snowfall rate measurements.

    The depth is packing the snow down quite a bit. From 1:00-3:30 p.m. I measured 2 3/4 inches of new snow on a clean plate, but only had an a total accumulation increase of about 2 inches during that same time frame.

  136. Hallie Ray says:

    • davidgentry says:

      Are you measuring in an unprotected area? Because of the consistency of this snow, it blows, slides, shifts and can very several inches from spots that are only feet from each other. Measurements should be taken in an unprotected area, preferably a field or yard not protected by trees to be accurate.

      10.25 inches here near Chesterfield Towne Center at 2:15 PM.

    • wxdavid says:

      maybe you are measuring on your driveway?

    It started snowing around 6 a.m. ( We kept getting up to check during the night. You would have thought we were kids at Christmas) It is light, fluffy and accumulating rapidly. The last measurement taken about 20 minutes ago on our back deck which is fairly protected from the wind is 8 and a half inches. Guess the line shifted since we were in the 6 inch or less area.

    • Annie says:

      Yeah, my feeders have been very popular today as well. One of my cats has gotten no sleep since 6 am because she’s so fascinated with the birds, lol. The other doesn’t care at all and she’s smart enough to stay on the heated mattress pad on my bed.

      As expected. Western Low is transferring energy to the offshore low, which will slowly pull away as scheduled this afternoon.

  238. Stan says:

    Six and a half inches of snow in Aylett at noon.

    Todays’s storm gives credit to the theory of the worst storm of any given month is on the full moon (e.g.: Hurricane Isabel).

    Guess what today (tonight) is the full moon.

  284. Jane, Chester says:

    At my house measured 5.5 inches a few minutes ago. Anyone have a recipe for snow cream?

    • Elaine says:

      Snowcream recipe

      Recipe for “Grandma Carrie’s Bull Island Snowcream”:
      In very big pot mix:
      I can Eagle Brand condensed milk
      I can evaporated milk
      3 eggs (raw)… See More
      2 1/2 cups sugar
      2 tablespoons Vanilla extract

      Mix this all together

      Then add snow until you get a good thick consistency
      Then you add whatever flavor you like: more vanilla for Vanilla Snowcream, or lemon extract, or crushed cherries and pineapple etc. I like the plain Vanilla. Also, I just tried adding bourbon to it and it is THE BOMB. That is NOT in Grandma Carrie’s recipe! My mom “Miss Bettie Mae” likes the crushed cherries and pineapple best!

      • Annie says:

        I’ve always just made it with snow, regular milk, and cocoa powder for flavoring because I’m a chocaholic. Delicious!

        You can also make extra and store it in the freezer. It’s still yummy months later; a nice reminder of the snowfall during the hot summer months.

    • Jo says:

      2 cups milk 2 cups sugar snow and a dollop of vanilla! you may have to play with the amount of snow, but we’ve got enough to do that with! evaporated milk works really well too – makes it creamier

  285. Sanchez says:

  292. Charles Jones says:

    Wow you guys really need to give it up with the yardstick! The last storm your snowlady stuck it into a plowed pile for a very unaccurate measurement! And early this morning here’s the yardstick again before any measurable accumulation. No wonder people in Richmond act so silly in storms. Thanks for your broadcast in all seriousness being so amusing!

    • David Gentry says:

      If you can measure it, isn’t it measurable..?

      Title of the post “Post your SNOW TOTALS here!” 😛

    • martha jones burford says:

      But, is silly always a pejorative term? Sometimes we love being excited by nature, reminded to pause. Robert Frost said it well, “The way a crow shook down on me the dust of snow from a hemlock tree, has given my heart a change of mood and saved some part of a day I had rued.” So, I’m bound to be silly today and hale my fellows who will make hot chocolate and chili, come in with soaking gloves, and wear those yardsticks out in the winter wonderland!

  340. David Gentry says:

    Chesterfield, near Chesterfield Towne Center – snow totals are slowly creeping up. Looking about about 1 1/4 out there now.

    Keep an eye on the kids and animals later today as the wind chill, combined with the snow, will make for some very cold hands, cheeks, and paws!

    • David Gentry says:

      Oh, and don’t forget to keep the snow clear from around your heat pumps. With the consistency of this snow and where heat pumps are typically located, there could be some hefty drifts pilling up around them.

  341. Carole Cheeley says:

    Just a report from Carson, VA: 2 inches fluffy snow at 0700…staying warm and enjoying coffee with your broadcast!

    Roads are getting bad quick. Live out near chesterfield County airport and it’s coming down hard. Woke up to bigger snow total forecast, wow. Have seen possible dry slot setting up to the west but hope it slides south with more snow well west of it. Also intense storms down south which in the past has robbed us some of deeper moisture.Any idea’s on that one ?

    5:52 and we have almost a half inch here in Chesterfield….. never Court house road and 360.
    and more important …. the Coffee is on …

    It’s been snowing here on Dry Bread Road steady since about 11 pm last night. Everything is completely covered with snow. You were right, it’s a very powdery, dry snow. We measured it at 5:30 am and so far we have a little over 6 inches, with it falling like crazy still. We will update our totals as the day progresses.
