Snowmageddon Removal in Carlyle
Snowmageddon snow removal

As readers know, it is snowing a LOT during this weekend’s winter storm. So, on this Flashback Friday, I thought we’d look back at other bad snowstorms in Alexandria, Virginia.

It snowed so much during snowmageddon (17.8″) that the City of Alexandria, Virginia called in the heavy equipment to remove the snow. These photos were taken early morning.

Snowmageddon Removal In Carlyle

As readers know, it snowed record levels during yesterday’s winter storm. So, on this Flashback Friday, I thought we’d look back at other bad snowstorms in Alexandria, Virginia.

I was looking for some reference material on the 1979 blizzard in Alexandria, Virginia when I came across this great footage taken near Timber Branch Parkway in Alexandria after Snowmageddon in February 2010. While we had a lot of snow yesterday, it was no where near the all-time record. Click this link to revisit the Washington, D.C. area’s top snowstorms.

For Rule 5 Friday, we scanned the local Alexandria, Virginia area blogs to find the most interesting stories in them you might have missed. Please show our fellow bloggers some link love! You can find our favorite blogs at this link.

In addition to this look back at the old marquee of the Old Town Theater in Alexandria, Virginia on Throwback Thursday, I have a question for readers. Where you you five years ago TODAY (February 5) when the first phase of Snowmageddon hit our area?

Check out this image from the NASA’s Terra satellite of the size of the Snowmageddon blizzard taken with the on board Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The image really shows the size of the storm and how the snow we got that year really highlights the topography around the Appalachian Mountains.
