Well once again we were hit with another blizzard. Although not as much snow fell as the first one, we did however, have much stronger winds. Some wind gusts surpassed 50 mph.
This is officially the snowiest winter ever in Baltimore with 80.2 inches, with the previous record being 64.8 inches. Our average snowfall for the region is 18.2 inches.
This video is from the height of the storm on Wednesday 2/10.

Here?s a picture of Donna after shoveling some snow during the storm.

On Wednesday the Mayor of Baltimore implemented Phase III of the snow emergency plan.
This meant than no vehicles except those for emergencies should be on the road and those that are will be ticketed.
I haven?t been able to get to work for two days now.
All we do is shovel, shovel and shovel and it?s getting harder and harder to find places to put this stuff.
There is a possibility of another storm coming this weekend; however, it should only produce a couple of inches of additional snow.

Great photos and video Donna!:) You guys sure have your share of snow down there. With all that shoveling, you're going to wear out the shovels.:D

BRAD, I don't think we have EVER shoveled so much snow that we can recall here in Baltimore.

CHRIS, I never thought I would say this but "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH". Boonsboro is our old stomping ground where we would hunt years ago. It's a nice town.

ANNE, Thank you again. There's a clipper coming thru this evening with 3" predicated. Hope that's all.

BOB The shovels aren't quite worn out yet; but my hands are showing several blisters and calluous that have developed. Has anyone ever hears of "carpel shovel syndrome?"

Thanks....Sound like a good plan:D Fortunately, we only received a dusting from last evening's clipper that came though. How about you?

We were only supposed to get an inch or two, but I think it will be quite a bit more. It's been snowing all day so far.

But, nothing compared to what you have had down there.

Great pictures Kathy!! Did you guys lose power at all?

We got torrential rain and gusty winds but no snow.


If anyone has a kayak you could paddle it around in our backyard now.:p
