D.C. Experiences Most Snow In History

Anthropogenic global warming mythology and virtually non-existent atmospheric carbon dioxide have teamed up to produce a most unlikely effect: Baltimore, DC Break Records For Snowiest Winter.

The last time D.C. experienced this much snow was ... never.

STERLING, Va. -- The current storm has put Baltimore and Washington over the top for their snowiest seasons on record.

The National Weather Service said as of 1 p.m. Wednesday, the seasonal snowfall totaled 72.3 inches at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
That's the most since record-keeping began in Baltimore in 1893. The previous record, from 1995-96, was 62.5 inches.

Meanwhile, Washington also reached a seasonal snowfall record on Wednesday. As of 2 p.m., there were 54.9 inches recorded at Reagan National Airport -- a half-inch above the previous record from the 1898-99 season.

Washington Dulles International Airport, broke its seasonal snowfall record on Tuesday with 63.5 inches. The previous record of 61.9 inches was set in the 1995-96 season.
