They're Using the "B" word again in Calvert County

They're Using the "B" word again in Calvert County. The Mid-Atlantic is about to get blasted again - another 10 to 25 inches predicted for the D.C./Baltimore area with the word "blizzard" in the mix for the third time this winter - on top of Saturday's 2 to 3+ feet in some areas.

And in this part of Southern Maryland - notice I use the word "southern" - bit of an oxymoron there - we were lucky. Just shy of a foot and a half and only 6 to 10 inches forecasted.

One would never know from these pictures that snow could wreak the havoc that's upon us. And as for selling real estate - wonder when anyone is going to be thinking about buying houses anytime soon - maybe everybody's looking online. I tried to go by a potential listing today - wrong. The road was a lane and half at best - turned around when the car in front of us got stuck. Oh, yes, and the house is back a lane of it's own when I look at the satellite view - I'm thinking MONTHS.

    Susan ~ Glad I am living on the west coast.  Getting pounded with rain doesn't seem so bad right now.

    Douglas - Sleet last night, so the roads will be extra treacherous- woke up to heavy snow and the winds are picking up. This reminds me of when I lived in western PA.

    Melinda - I think all that rain you are having is coming to the south and east and forming these storms. I know the rain causes its share of problems, though.
