Snowpocalypse of 2010 is coming!

Info from the Capital Weather Gang:

Here are the top 10 snowstorms on record for Washington, D.C.:
1. January 27-28, 1922 ... 28 inches
2. February 11-13, 1899 ... 20.5 inches
3. February 18-19, 1979 ... 18.7 inches
4. January 6-8, 1996 ... 17.1 inches
5. February 15-18, 2003 ... 16.7 inches
6. February 11-12, 1983 ...16.6 inches
7. December 19-20, 2009 ... 16.4 inches (Snowpocalypse)
8. February 15-16, 1958 ... 14.4 inches
9. February 7, 1936 ... 14.4 inches
10. February 16-18, 1900 ... 14.3 inches



We are just north of DC and regularly see more than the official totals measured at Reagan National, as shown above.  Snowpocalypse 2009 (#7) gave us 23".

Since the early 1940s, there have only been two winters in which DCA received multiple double-digit events, 1957-58 and 1986-87.

Can you dig it?  I know I do...and will dig out too :)
