Just measured 6" snow at 10:30 PM, 30 miles west of Baltimore. Snowing steady, wind calm. House 74 deg. electric still on. Local news said our electric utility company has pre-positioned repair supplies around their service area. Out of state utility company trucks are already on the road traveling to help with the expected downed wires.

I think 5" is the most we got at one time. The day after the temp went up and melted most of it. Looks like the storm for approx. Tues. or Weds. may produce a better chance for me.

It continues to snow here with the worst of it still to come. We have around 18 inches on the ground on top of what was left from the Christmas storm and what we got Tuesday. "They say we should expect 30 or more inches before it's all over. If that happens it will top a record set in 1895. The top ten worse snows for the region were around 28 inches. I guess I'll have no choice but to watch BBall all day. :) I hope everyone is warm and toasty. Take care, Lisa

I just measured 21+ inches (9:30 AM). It's still snowing. No or light wind. Looks like there has been some overnight drifting. No road traffic at all, not even snow plows. According to TV news reports the effort is to keep one lane open on the interstates. For now they are ignoring most exit ramps. This storm will be an all time record for central Maryland. Lots of problems expected tonight as the winds pickup. Tens of thousands in the state without power now, sure to be more by tomorrow morning. The photo is the view out my front door. The trailer parked in my front driveway has about 2 tons of Superior pea coal in it. The drooping evergreen tree you see is touching the top of the snow. Normally you can drive a large truck under it. There will be a lot of tree damage once the wind picks up. I'm going out in it to plow a path to my shop where my boiler and generator are. Fortunately my tractor has a heated cab. I'm almost sure we will be without power before this is all over.
