As I sit here inside and warm, it's still a raging snow storm outside dumping epics amounts of snow on Annapolis, Maryland and the surrounding area. In the two photos below, you see that I setup a yard stick before the snow began to fall yesterday. When last measured (Saturday, February 6th at approximately 2:30 p.m.) the snow depth on the patio table exceeded 25 inches.
The yard stick is positioned in front of the covered umbrella. A close up photo is below.
This is the second storm to hit the area this winter and leave Annapolis, Maryland under a blanket of heavy snow. It reminds me more of New England than of the mid-Atlantic. While the last snow storm - before Christmas - set everyone back in their holiday shopping, this pre-Superbowl Sunday storm won't have quite the same effect. Maryland school kids are likely to be out of snow days before this is cleaned up and they can head back to school. For the adults - well - we'll see just what's open on Monday. Most business should be operational after having Sunday to clean out parking lots and clear walk-ways.
Rocky (left, above) and Mason (right, above) play in the snow. Once the driveway was shoveled out, they had room to run!!!
I really didn't realized the magnitude of this storm until I walked down to the Rotary, the "One Way" sign (above) barely visible in the blowing snow.
You really can't tell just how bad the roads are. Rocky has "four paw drive" so he didn't mind walking in the street. The sidewalks which run down either side of Riva Trace Parkway won't be seen until June of this year, they are under so much snow.
We walked all the way down the street to Riva Road past Summer Place, Riva Trace, Annapolis, Maryland 21401. I can't wait to look back on this photos when the temperature soars above 90 degrees and the humidity is almost the same. These will be cool pictures to reflect on!!!
After all the excitement, Rocky was one tired puppy.
In the meantime, while the storm wraps up, we'll just let sleeping dogs lie!!!
