Maryland's Midshore Dodges Snow

Posted:

CENTREVILLE, Md.- The Eastern Shore of Maryland dodged a bullet when it came to Tuesday's predicted snowstorm, with Cecil County being the only area seeing significant snowfall.

WBOC went up to Centreville, where snow was sticking on cars and grass, but fortunately not roadways.  Rick Coulby, who owns the Commerce Street Creamery, says he's having trouble planning out his seasonal specials because the weather keeps changing so frequently.

"You kind of wish it would make it's mind up.  You look forward to the seasons to change." said Coulby.  He says this is the third false start to the winter weather season so far this year.

Not many people seemed overly concerned about the approaching storm though.  Nathan Clakring, who works at Western Tire and Auto in Centreville, says while tire sales and wiper blade sales were up on Monday, the normal snow storm sales never happened.

"The tire sales were just up a little bit, not like a normal snowstorm.  Then we sell a lot of shovels, and salt, and sleds and that kind of stuff, which we haven't seen a whole lot of yet." said Clakring.

Farther south in Cambridge, snow never quite stuck to the ground, even though Dale Carrier's wife was hoping for it.

"I would prefer dry roads, but my wife would prefer snow, she's a snow bunny.  She loves to get out and walk in the snow and enjoy it.  We're a family divided, so either or it works for us." said Carrier.

Maryland State Highway Administration officials warn though that although the snow might not have stuck, wet roads may ice over Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, and drivers should exercise caution.
