1st Storm of 2018

Out the Back Window
The first Nor'Easter of 2018 is cruising up the coast and eastern Maryland is paralyzed by it.

Looking up the Driveway
The ability to handle snow in  this region continues to be less than optimal. Add to that the drivers do not respect the snow and wind up becoming obstacles along the roadsides to be avoided.

Schools are closed. It is the first snow day of the season and there is less than an inch of snow falling in our area. Of course, there is a lot more falling elsewhere. The wind is blowing the snow around and the frigid temperatures mean that all of the snow if going to stay around for a while.

I have to admit that because I grew up in Upstate New York that the amount of snow falling this morning is nothing more than a nuisance. Sadly, though, it is paralyzing the region. 

I do like the way that the local news media covers these weather events. They send people everywhere to cover the differing conditions. 

The coverage of the storm is better than watching a sporting event. We get it from every possible angle.

They are calling this one Snow-icane, because of the hurricane force winds some areas are experiencing
