It’s snowing here. It started late last night and is supposed to continue though until Sunday morning. It’s an official blizzard, with the amount of snow falling, the wind levels and the temperatures, right now, about 22 degrees. I understand that it’s coming down at almost a half an inch an hour.Connor and I have taken a few walks today, but it’s pretty cold, so they’re short walks. Baltimore’s Ravens have a big football game tomorrow against the Chicago Bears. Lots of my Baltimore and Chicago friends are coming. Since the stadium is open-air, there are a lot of logistics getting involved in clearing out the stands and the field. Of course, Chicago hasn’t flown into Baltimore yet, so who knows what will happen tomorrow?Most of all, who knows how much snow we will get before it finally ends?
*** We are at 15+ inches now (9 p.m) and it’s still snowing, although it’s lightened up a bit. This is the largest December snowfall recorded in Baltimore, and it’s sweeping its way up the mid-Atlantic coast and then out to sea.
My neighbourhood looks like a winter wonderland. I managed to get an ace parking spot, so it will just be a matter of clearing the car, doing a little shoveling and then off I go! My boxwood topiary in front of my house has been mashed by the snow, but hopefully, it will spring back up once the snow’s gone. Connor is still loving the snow, although he’s not as bouncy as his puppy friend Hal!
