Snow Days in Baltimore

Living here in the Mid-Atlantic area of the country, our winters are usually fairly mild, while we do get the occasional heavy snowfall, we oftentimes go through the winter without any major snow storms. I was thinking about this on the way back from the store yesterday as I experienced once again the primordial hunter/gathering instinct kick in at the supermarkets as people rushed to get their milk, bread and toilet paper. It has to be some remnant of long ago days because it’s never more than a day or two before we can all get out and get to the store. Anyway, as I sit here watching the snow lightly come down, I am reminded of one of those years(2010) when we had a ‘real’ winter as we were hit with several snowstorms in the same week. As the pictures below reveal, it was one for the record books.
