I'm guessing 9 inches, because that would put us half-an-inch short of the record. That just seems to be how it should turn out considering DCA lowballs all of these storms.

Whatever the total is (probably 7 or 8, if we it is more accurate 9 - 10 inches) it is going to be several inches shorter than what the center of the city gets, because it always is. The wind and being near the water blows the snow away from this "official" count spot, always making it inaccurate, highly so for this past storm. A.U. and parts of DC had 25 to 27 inches but DCA had 17 inches. I say change the spot to a more accurate location!

I just shovelled about 12 inches off of my front walk in DC. DCA will record half that amount, per usual.

It is interesting the the poll shows a large number of participants expecting 20" or more of snow. I wonder if this is wishful thinking.

I agree. DCA is a silly place to measure. They are windswept, near the water, and not really an accurate reflection of what most of the region gets.

I routinely measure more in my neighborhood than DCA measures.
