President’s Day Storm 2003

The President’s Day snow storm of 2003 was a record breaker. The snow was spread out over 4 days and within those four days there was a 30 hour period in which it snowed continuously. The region was crippled by 18 to 28 inch snow accumulations.

One of the biggest casualties of the storm was the Roundhouse at the B&O Railroad Museum. Roughly half of the roof collapsed under the weight of the snow. The building has been repaired but the restoration work continues on the damaged railroad equipment that was inside.

The President’s Day storm contibuted to some impressive numbers for the winter of 2002-2003.

Weatherwise, this winter has been an active one across the nation but major storms have skirted around the Mid Atlantic region so far. That active weather pattern will continue into the near future and a significant storm would not be out of the question.
