Snow in my back yard is 17 inches at 8:30 PM. About 30 miles west of Baltimore. Starting to taper off but it's still coming down. A dry powder snow. Weather forecasters are saying it will be over by midnight. Expecting winds next. This snow will be close to a record for central Maryland. It's unlikely to be the record because the official record spot, BWI airport didn't get as much as other more northern central Maryland areas. I haven't tried plowing at all. I'll wait till sunlight tomorrow. I haven't heard a single snow plow on my road. Very unusual because I live on a state owned and maintained road. It past years it was plowed more than needed. I guess the states budget problems have them focusing on the major roads.

My daughter and her boyfriend took a one day bus trip to NYC Friday. The bus back was canceled so the are stuck in a Manhattan hotel for another night. Hopefully they will get back tomorrow afternoon.

Just came in from my second go round with the snow blower. Still snowing but seems to be letting up. We didn't get 2' but it looks to be about 20". I'll measure in the am.

The important thing is that everyone keeps safe & warm, the snow will go away someday. Up here in beautiful N.W. Pa. we only have around 3" or so guess that makes us about 20" below average, now at least I know who took our snow,enjoy.

We're warm and safe here this am. This is a record snowfall for this area in December. By the way, if you'd like to come get your snow, please do do. :lol:

I`d come & get some but its probably been tainted with salt, up here they prefer to just leave it natural. Spring will come along & take care of it those Amish horse & buggies get around pretty well in the snow Real narrow wagon wheels must be the reason. That & low horse power.

Just a dusting last night - Snow has settled to half what it was a week ago in depth
My son is on the way back to the mid west from the Niagara Falls area and says the roads are fine today.

Woke up to maybe 1". Still coming down now, but not expecting much from this one. Probably won't even need to plow ..... I'll just let it melt!

We got about 6" here. Turns out, the best part of this storm is that it kept the mall clear long enough for me and the kids to shop for mamma. It was like a ghost town! :lol:
