Unexpected Snow Storm

What was forcast as a light dusting of snow for Saturday turned into a whole lot more than that in the Baltimore area. I awoke Saturday morning to the first snowflakes falling.  What I thought would pass by quickly turned into a lengthy, constant snow storm. The city wound up getting more than an inch or so, and the streets quickly turned into a slippery white mess.

Unlike our previous snowstorm that dropped 21 inches in December. This quick storm left many of us in Baltimore unprepared, and previously scheduled weekend plans were truncated. Thankfully, the DOT was on the roads early and often, salting, sanding, and plowing. By the afternoon most of the downtown streets were pretty clear.

If you have any snow stories from the weekend please let me know!

  1. I remember reading before the season that a culmination of factors were going to lead to this being one of the snowiest, if not the snowiest, of all time. I am pretty sure it was the footsforecast.org, which is actually a pretty entertaining weather blog. So far this El Nina is pretty severe and real, huh?!!

    Keep warm and I love your blog.
