Re: snow

We got hammered with about a foot Thursday night then another 7-8" Friday
night.  Was thinking of you. Pam, and I kept telling it "go west, young
snow, go west to Texas" but it wouldn't.  Finally did head up the coast.
Only 25 miles southeast they just got slush then about 3" of snow.  Good
thing I took some pictures because my coworkers don't believe me.

Supposed to be up in the 40's later this week so a lot should melt.  From 8
years of drought to a year of record precip.  whew.

MD zone 6
