Get Breaking News First
ROSEDALE, Md. (WJZ) — The snow plows and salt trucks are working hard as Maryland is hit with yet another winter storm.
Linh Bui explains how many people just want spring to get here already.
It’s been a rough winter.
“I walk my dog like two miles every morning, so it’s been brutal. Absolutely brutal,” said Michelle Dimity, Rosedale.
Many Marylanders are fed up with the snow and the cold.
“I’m more than ready for spring,” Tom Vlachls said.
But now we’re facing another pounding from Mother Nature.
“This year, it’s terrible. So we’re hoping this will be it,” Theresa and Mike Swink said.
Theresa and Mike Swink of Dundalk stocked up on groceries from Costco–meat, milk and bread.
“I hate winter. I’ll be glad when it’s over. Definitely,” they said.
Carmen Caltabiano has had his work cut out for him. His company, Green Scapes Unlimited, was contracted by the State Highway Administration to clear I-695. But the frigid temps make their jobs even harder.
“Once we wash all of our trucks down, it freezes immediately,” Caltabiano said. “So we could have a machine that’s all washed down and we can’t get it started.”
Wednesday, his employees were busy loading up salt trucks. It’s been nonstop work all season.
“And the way the snow has been, as soon as we put it away, we have to put it back on again,” said Caltabiano.
Green Scapes Unlimited has ten trucks going out Wednesday night. And they’re covering an area from Ellicott City to White Marsh to Bel Air.
Now, with possibly a massive snow storm on tap, people are dreaming of warmer weather.
“I’m ready for summer,” said Carol Kile, Middle River.
Anywhere but here.
“If I could go to southern California, Hawaii or Florida for the next five weeks, everything would be beautiful,” said Dred Scott.
It’s been extremely cold. We’ve had some nights where the salt doesn’t activate and we have to go out and actually hand chip some of the salt.
