In DC, they measure snow fall in the area at National Airport, which usually tends to get less snow than DC, MD suburbs and westernFairfax and Loudon counties.
However, this is the first time in DC that the airport got more snow than at my house.
National Airport -12"
my house – not even 8"
On the other hand, a couple of years ago, the Airport got hit with 18" in a blizzard, which was low compared to the over 2 feet that was dumped in my driveway.
