News & Notes: Freedman Moves to Monday

By Jason Samenow

Columnist Andrew Freedman, whose column was regularly featured here on Sundays, will switch to Mondays starting tomorrow. A variety of material will fill his Sunday slot including original weather photography, short (and fun) news items (such as below), questions from you (email them to us) with our responses, and more.

Additional news and notes:

  • The Post's Travel section has a feature on the appeal of visiting New Hampshire's Mt. Washington, home of some of the world's most extreme winter weather. "Call me weird. But I've always been curious about winter at its whiteout worst", writes author Peter Mandel. See: On Top of Mount Washington, N.H.
  • reports WUSA-9's meteorologist Kim Martucci beat out FOX-5's Sue Palka in its "Battle of the Local Media Hotties"

d, if you're talking seeing some flakes, it's always possible, if your're talking about a big snow, not going 2 happen. This winter, which never happened, is now over. Hate 2 b the barer of bad news, but the facts r facts. I'll do a recap of the winter next week.

VaTechBob: Glad to here that. Can't wait for 70 degrees (while they last for about 2 days until it gets blisteringly hot)

d, VaTechBob, Peter -- We typically see a couple snow threats late Feb through at least mid-March. Doesn't mean that'll necessarily be the case this time around, but historically there's no reason to write off snow chances quite yet.

thanks Dan! You're keepin' the dream alive tonight! I'm counting on the power of the negative NAO...(right?)

Worst winter in years. Cool to cold, no snow. Lots of cold rain.

Put a bullet in it and lets get to April already.

Thanks, Greg. This has been a pretty unsnowy winter so far. Kinda funny I get a little excited about less than 1/2" of snow...
