BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Much of Maryland is dealing with snow Wednesday after an overnight storm crossed through the state.
WJZ’s Meg McNamara says much of central Maryland saw up to two inches of snow, with western parts of the state seeing close to four inches.
A Code Blue Alert is in effect for Baltimore until Thursday morning.
People across the state were forced to dig out before they could drive out.
Nancy Van Meter brought out her shovel bright and early.
“I understand the eskimos have 50 words for snow, and I was wondering which one would be this,” she said.
In another Baltimore neighborhood, Amy Weldon had a few other choice words to describe the latest blast of winter weather.
“I said bad words, to myself, under my breath, very quietly,” she said.
She and other Marylanders, by this point in the season, are well practiced at scraping windows and shoveling snow.
“Just trying to keep the sidewalk clean,” said Baltimore resident Fred Tanner.
Tanner has been sweeping the same sidewalk for 30 years. He says a little snow is no problem.
“I didn’t think it was very deep,” he said. “I just try to keep ahead of it. That’s all.”
