They’re forecasting another blizzard for the mid-Atlantic states beginning tomorrow through Saturday night, and Maryland is smack-dab in the middle of it. This one will supposedly be worse. Predictions for my area are anywhere from 16" to 22", and could even be much higher. Then, as if that weren’t enough, we are going to get hit with another blast next week. What’s happening? Is the world coming to an end? I haven’t seen this much snow since I was a kid, and believe me that was long long ago. I remember back when at least 12" was a normal snowfall in Maryland; but, this is just too much. Oh, well, the fridge is full (hope the power doesn’t go out), the toiletries are well stocked, and so are the snacks and libations, because thankfully I planned ahead….not for the snow, but for the Superbowl, so thank God for small favors.February 4, 2010 at 7:55 pm #10248BonbonParticipant
Hey, there’re lots of houses for sale down here. You’d never have to shovel snow or drive in it again…or wear boots…or mittens…or caps…or scarfs.
I’ve been meaning to ask you, do you watch Ace of Cakes on the Food Network? He’s in your neck of the woods, isn’t he? They don’t seem to have any snow there. They must only film in the summer. What made me think of it was they made a huge cake for the Super Bowl party last year and I figured since you’re a Ravens fan, you might have seen it.February 4, 2010 at 10:17 pm #10260PattiParticipant
which is in the City. I do watch him; it’s amazing what he can do with the art of cake decorating. I don’t remember the Superbowl cake show, but I’m at least a half hour’s drive from the City, but if my county is getting it, you can bet they are in the City as well. Sometimes when they show those deliveries, they are in other parts of the state, so I’m guessing there was no snow that day. Like I mentioned, we haven’t gotten this much snow in years. As a matter of fact, we’ve had winters where there was little to no snow at all, or at least 3 to 4 years before a major storm hit us, and now suddenly I feel like I’m living in the film "The Day After Tomorrow." Is it global "warming" or global "warning?" Are we closer to it becoming a reality one day? Who knows what the weather will be like in the next decade? I get chills just thinking about it.February 4, 2010 at 11:28 pm #10265SWParticipant
I know the feeling well. I think we are going to miss it this time. I’m in northern MA and they said only the southern part was supposed to get snow and only a small bit. I’ve had enough of the cold winter already! Most of our storms have come on the weekend or vacation days so we haven’t even had one snow day! lolFebruary 4, 2010 at 11:34 pm #10267kprstrsParticipant
My sister is in Ohio and I am in Iowa. She told me about this storm a couple of hours ago and after what we had here this past month, I told her that if she did not have 7′ drifts in her yard, I didn’t want to hear it!! We laughed of course, I feel so bad for all of you! Please hang in there, and know we are thinking of you all!!February 5, 2010 at 3:28 pm #10287IzzyBParticipant
I could have used winter cloths a couple days down here. This is the coldest winter since we moved down here. Of course we only moved down here about 5 years ago, but still I didn’t move down here to still be cold!!!! We have used our heat WAY more than we ever did in the past.
