DCA_Palm_Fan Posted January 30, 2010 Report Share Posted January 30, 2010 This is what the last big CA storm turned into for us here in the mid Atlantic. Keep in mind the temps on this map, are pretty much our HIGH TEMPS for the day today, 1/30/10. Also, this snow pushed all the way to the coast in places where it almost never snows. Places like Ocean City, NJ, Rehoboth Beach, DE, Ocean City, MD, Assateague Island, MD, Va. Beach, VA, Duck, NC, Corolla, NC, Nags Head, NC...etc. Even the Carrituck lighthouse out in, I think Corolla is blanketed in snow, which is a very rare sight in deed. The low for our area here in the DC metro tonight is 12-14F inside the beltway, and 8-12F out in the colder suburbs. Oh well, at least if its going to be frigid, the snow is something pretty to look at. National Airport which is 1 mile from me is reporting 4.5" at this time. I am measuring 6.1". National is always lagging behind everywhere else around it in almost every preceip and temp event. My windmills should come through this just fine though. They have seen colder, and they have seen worse weather. Try a nice 1/2" of solid ice on them last winter and they came through like a champ. Oh, and they are in POTS to boot. Of course they are wrapped in plastic and have some xmas lights around the pots and trunks. =o) Man I miss Florida already and I have only been back home since late Wednesday afternoon.
