Officially we got 24 inches of snow here in Bethesda, MD. There were 17 inches piled up on my patio table. It snowed hard from about 9pm Friday night until around 9pm Saturday night.
During the snowstorm the roads were in pretty poor condition, not surprising since it was snowing at the rate of 1 to 2 inches an hour. Here is a picture of I-495 near Old Georgetown Road. Even with conditions like this, there were still people driving.
No one was spared, not even the police.
By Sunday afternoon, things were much better. Main roads and secondary roads were wet, side streets were a bit worse, and they had started plowing neighborhood streets. I was just a tiny bit disappointed by how quickly things got back to normal.
They were busy re-stocking shelves at the Giant Food on Old Georgetown Rd. Nothing was really out, but selection of a few things were limited. For instance, there were no cans or 6 packs of Diet Coke, only 2 liter bottles. The soup aisle also had some holes in it.
Tell us what you did during the snow storm.
