Well, it’s official. The city is at a standstill. A state of emergency has been declared.
Most of the Baltimore area seems to have gotten around 20 inches of snow. You can check out some unofficial totals over at the Baltimore Sun here.

The only good news seems to be that it’s over. The snow finally stopped falling around 10 p.m. EST after coming down hard & heavy for more than 24 hours. BWI airport opened a runway just before 10 p.m. so that the Chicago Bears could land for tomorrow’s home game against the Ravens. No idea how they are going to remove so much snow from the stadium in such a short amount of time.
It took three hours, but we cleared the snow from our driveway and could get out onto the roads if we needed to, although we’d have to be out of our minds to go out right now. Most of the roads are impassible.
Tomorrow we’ll try to post some pictures of the aftermath.
