  1. Torrential downpours for the last 30 minutes.
  2. Have not seen a single one north of Hampstead. Last Saturday at a little game in Westminster and not a one there either.
  3. Worst loss ever. Even worse than the loss to Duke in the final 4 that same season. Arguably it was the best thing that could've happened to them. They went into a tailspin after that loss and eventually suffered a horrible home loss to an average at best Florida State team. After the Florida State loss Juan Dixon and Gary had a face to face sit down and the result was a big change in Gary's handling of the team. They went on to regroup and play superb basketball the rest of the season. They beat Duke at Duke in the rematch. Then lost a tough game to Duke in the ACC tournament semifinals. They had 4 epic battles with Duke during that season that year. Duke went on to win the national championship.
  4. Brutal end to the regular season. All their improvement was thrown away in 2 pitiful games. Just awful losses. May have played themselves out if the tournament.
  5. Hey, watch it now. I'm that guy "just down the street". .
  6. Flipped to a mix here 20-30 minutes ago. Maybe a half inch before that.
  7. Teleconnections for that time day 8-10 argue for a colder storm.
  8. I'm actually closer than the map shows. I live on the same side of route 30 as he does. I can pretty much see his house from my backyard.
  9. Good post. Yes it was North Carroll Middle. I have a 2 daughter's at Manchester Valley High School. One of them is starting in person tomorrow. The other one wants to start some time in March. I'm ok with it now. I also have a daughter in 5th grade at Ebb Valley Elementary and a stepson at North Carroll Middle. Both of them will go back in March. Most leading doctors agree they should go back in person in some form. I guess we'll see how everything plays out with more vaccines being distributed and new strains of the virus becoming more prevalent. We're still being as careful as possible and hoping for the best.
  10. A school employee at one of the local middle schools here died a few months ago due to Covid. The situation was hushed. How many other cases were not disclosed?
  11. Yeah, been a crazy year. Never have seen such dramatic differences in such a short distance. Can you believe PSU's total is 6 inches more than mine and I can see his house from my back deck. I'm at 860ft. and his is roughly 1050ft. He is at 51 inches and BWI is 10.3. Just absurd.
  12. That's amazing. My parents live on the top of Westminster St. at 1050ft. but I haven't been there because of Covid. I'm curious to see how their coverage is. I've got about 7-8 on my south facing front yard and 10 in the backyard. My deck which gets no sun has 12 now but was 14 this morning during the snow. This has been an impressive stretch of snow cover. My front yard usually takes a beating on sunny days but I've had full coverage since Jan 31st. The freezing rain and sleet was no doubt partially responsible for the staying power but its also been quite chilly.
