A lot of people are slamming the road crews...Wondering why stuff isn't done.
I don't think people understand the amount of snow out there and just how many roads need to get done.

University of Maryland closed again tomorrow. It's been closed since Friday. If this forecast holds up, I probably won't have to go in Wednesday, either.
I haven't had snow days since HS, so getting them in grad school is kind of awesome.

My son tried to dig thru Mt Everest in front of my my mailbox
I finally said to stop..it is impossible.
I was frightened driving around Bel Air Today...the roads were AWFUL.
I need to get my cats special food somehow before the snow starts again!!!

But I think they are doing all they can right now...Its just so much and its going to get worse before it gets better.
I really think they should just say, stay home until Thursday or Friday...We have to be able to clear the roads and need the emergency vehicles to be able to get around right now.

My girlfriend works in primary care and so I have to trek out across some really bad roads in my Chrysler Sebring to get her there as no 4WD transit has been offered through her work. At the same time, it is insane to me that some stocking clerk at Best Buy making 7.50 is getting pressured by his boss to be at work on Monday morning because somebody feels like buying a plasma when buried beneath a blizzard.
Shut down non-essential businesses to clear the roads for the plows and for essential travel (there were checkpoints in my town when I was a kid).

Quick question: my car is semi-dug out but is backed into the space, so the exhaust pipe is in a snowbank. If I just want to run the engine for a bit to make sure it's OK in the cold, will rolling down the windows keep me from getting gassed with CO?
Edit: There is enough space cleared in front of the car that I can move it forward a bit.

I would love for someone to tell me that I wasn't allowed to go anywhere in this crap. Be grateful, non-emergency people, cause it sucks. Cabin fever ain't so bad.

Here's how the seasonal rankings look now:
1. 1995-96: 62.5 inches
2. 2009-10: 60.4 inches*
3. 2002-03: 58.1 inches
4. 1963-64: 51.8 inches
5. 1898-99: 51.1 inches
60.4 plus 15 or so = 75 inches, easily demolishing the 15 year old record.
