BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland State Police were busy overnight responding to 30 crashes.

Maryland saw it’s second round of winter weather this year with mixed precipitation starting Thursday night.

State police also responded to 14 disabled or unattended vehicles and 386 calls for service.

If there could be a perfect snow, what fell overnight and into Friday morning might just qualify.

Snow threatened Thursday night’s rush hour and Friday mornings, but what fell did not add up to much on the ground.

The forecast never called for a lot of snow, and it turned out to be accurate. Not enough to plow, although road crews were out in force laying down salt- keeping major roadways open, although a light coating developed on parking lots and residential streets.

It wasn’t so much digging out as it was brushing off, brooms instead of shovels, but it was still the job before your day job.

“It’s winter time so it’s expected, but I could do without it, that’s for sure,” John Young, a city resident, said.

“Today I’m going to Liberty, which is one of the small closer mountains, and I only have a few hours to kill so I’m going to take advantage of the snow while it’s here,” said  Eric Landers.

“I love it,” said Toni Kratocheil. It’s just so pretty and so peaceful and it makes everything in the city look so beautiful and so bright. So I enjoy it, myself. As long as it’s not ice, I like it,”

But rain, with the possibility of ice, is in the forecast for this weekend. Drive safe!
