We had pretty much dug ourselves by 9:00 this morning and were inside enjoying breakfast when the county plow arrived. Though we were happy to see him it was a mixed blessing. We now had a new barrier of snow blocking our drive and it was much heavier than the stuff we cleared earlier.
Earlier I navigated through the unplowed street to get a cup of coffee at my neighborhood Dunkin Donuts. It turned out that our street was the exception and most other streets in our little corner of HoCo were fairly clear.
At the same time there were roads in HoCo where snow on the road was only part of the problem. The heavy snow took a toll on trees and power lines like this scene on
New Cut Road in Ellicott City.
It could take awhile to clean all this up.
