    These pictures are from this morning, and there is probably another 4 inches more since these were taken.

    I live near Lancaster, PA (about 45 min due west of philly) and we got hit pretty hard. Theres a drift in my driveway as tall as my shoulders (and im 6'4"!). It has slowed down a little, but the wind is picking up so its going to be a mess for a couple of days.

    Doesnt bother me one bit. I brewed some tea and am sitting next to my wood stove keeping warm ;)

    Crappy dark iPhone picture....

    I have no idea how much that is, as I suck at judging measurements :p.
    But, there's also another ~5" below that as it's on a step.

    I'm in Arlington VA. I thought I was being smart by shoveling a few times yesterday, but clearing 6 inches yesterday doesn't really matter today when I woke up to 16+ inches :-(

    i saw some people tried to shovel this morning, no one is outside right now, so i am guessing they all gave up.

    lol

    Finished my driveway here in Ashburn, VA. 2 1/2 hours with a buddy of mine helping. By the time I came in, we were up to 26". It's still coming down... Time to open up some whiskey and watch some golf and eat my face off for the rest of the day.

    Here in Northern Virginia things look very bleak; 20+ inches of the white stuff so far no plows seen anywhere in our neighborhood... lots of collapsed structures (backyard sheds and home additions), widespread power outages, and many people needing help. Snow continues to fall. This storm seems far more serious than media are making it and many are in serious condition. Heard of a few heart attacks from people, mostly older folks, shoveling driveways, but this was word of mouth from neighbors. Surprisingly, electrical power lines in our immediate area, with cable connections, are still working but I doubt this will be case when the wind picks up... Hope everyone is safe...

    2 feet of snow in new New England is a lot but manageable. 2 feet in DC or Virginia has to be a nightmare. They can't even deal with 2 inches.

    We just got 26 here in Philly according to the news. Outside looks like they are telling the truth. Luckily I got out of the er right before the falls started coming in.

    I don't mind the snow, the jeep has 4 studded snow tires and 4 wheel drive. Chains for backup. I like driving in it because no one else is out.

    Although I do have to go pick up a friend who got stuck at a friends house last night. And starbucks!

    I am in the same boat. I have lived here for just 3 years and this is the hugest amount of snow I have ever seen in my life.

    The most snow I've seen from a single storm was from the Blizzard of '78. We got around 40" of snow out in the suburbs of RI and drifts covered our ranch-style house. My parents have pictures out the front and back windows showing a wall of snow. We had to leave the house through the garage and dig back in to get to the doors. Being only 10-11, I thought the whole thing was great fun. It took a few days to get back to normal for this one.

    The second biggest was the April Fool's Blizzard of '97. I got caught at work in Boston for that one. I got cocky about having 4WD and didn't think that maybe the truck wouldn't start! We got around 30" that night. Major roads were back open the next day and once I got a jump start I headed home.

    I don't see Baltimore being able to dig out of near 30" in one night, but at least this happened on a weekend.

    Hang in there and stay safe..That's a lot of snow,esp if you're not used to it..

    Went through both of those..Last year's ice storm was a b***h as well. As well as the Gridlock Storm of 07..We're due for one here this year...

    26" or so here in Philly. Main streets are really clear, gotta hand it to the DOT or whoever plows them.

    I like the snow, I just don't like snow drivers.

    Dude. The people in Virginia couldn't drive if their damn tires were made of velcro.
