Summary: Ohio's Winter Storm Q

By: Buckey2745 , 2:56 PM GMT on February 22, 2013

Winter Storm Q has come and gone here in Central Ohio and it left behind a nice glazing of ice. All schools are shut down for the day, and most people are taking it easy, waiting for the ice to melt before venturing out.

No snow fell this morning, which helped keep ice accumulation on the higher end. But the thining out of the moisture as I eluded to yesterday did come to fruition. Because of this decent icing was confined to a time period between 1am and 3am, with another small burst after sunrise.

Here are some images of the storm:

This was Central Ohio's first ice storm of the season, and while it wasn't crippling, it was enough to slow people down quite a bit this morning. Measurments were hard to take this morning because rain actually fell at a high enough rate to be a solid runoff from the trees and bushes. Meaning all ice accumulated on the ground. Obviously that's a good thing, otherwise we could have had power outages. But measuring became difficult. I'd have to guess about 0.20" of ice, more than double what I predicted. Again, these estimates could be high, but I haven't seen any other local ice totals to check.

The next system will move through Monday night, and I'll write about the snow potential this weekend.

Rain and wind for us this morning - a nice change from that long run of Boring weather. Very gloomy and blustery outside the windows, and I like it today. I'm not envious of your ice! Home would be the best place to be. It is nice that you are getting a "winter", though, and an improvement over last year. It is always something to wonder about how the next season will pan out. But before that comes, it sounds like you still have a lot of snow/snow chances to plow through. I hope all is going well for you.
