Maryland is closed today, so I am home still getting up the energy to dig my car out. From the amount of people and cars in the parking lot, I don't think anyone went to work today. They only just plowed a path to the entrance around 1am this morning.
Hoping for at least a late opening tomorrow so I can sleep in. And a day off Wednesday would be nice, too. But let's not get greedy.

Finally got out on the roads today in Norhern Baltimore County. The main problem I see is that between the two directions of traffic, there are often 1.5 lanes clear of the snow banks. There are also cars parked along Padonia and Cranbrook halfway out into the lane of traffic.
Right now, these problems aren't a big deal, but we will soon have more traffic on the roads trying to travel faster and more snow on the way. Between this and all of the people who are forced to walk in the streets immediately alongside traffic, I am afraid we are going to see some more deaths from the post-storm aftermath.
Btw, I spoke to a guy I know in the Baltimore County Police Department and he said that they were getting a lot of calls for assault cases stemming from parking space thievery. These events certainly seem to bring out the best and worst in us.

So, they cleared the streets and buried the sidewalks... now people are walking their dogs in the street, kids have nowhere to wait for the bus, the streets (in PA) are still sketchy.
I think this is one of those no win situations.

This is crazy... 12-20 more inches tomorrow?? WTF.
There was absolutely no mail today, I suppose because nobody went to work over the weekend. I literally delivered 5 pieces of mail and 8 packages today. Another big storm tomorrow, and a Monday holiday... The mail is going to be out of control someday soon. I need to put in for vacation but I can't afford it.
