Maryland Drivers Struggle With Latest Snow Storm

Posted:
CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Here we go again.  Round three of this series of winter snow storms that have been hammering us for weeks.  It's made driving extremely difficult, and has drivers on their toes.

"I like to do slow and steady," said Judy Harding of Easton.

Her V-8 powered muscle car doesn't exactly say "slow and steady", but it's all she can do in this weather.

"It was kind of dicey in Annapolis, and it was getting better as it got here, but I'm sure it's coming this way," said Harding.

But even in some cases, slow and steady wasn't enough.  While we were filming one accident, another car, a four wheel drive suv, spun and hit a guard rail.  No one in either accident was hurt.

Talbot County Emergency Services officials said the sleet has been somewhat of a blessing in disguise, while also being a curse.  It's knocked down snow accumulation totals because the snow can't stick to the sleet as well.  However, the roads are slick because of the sleet and tonight, it's going to freeze.

"Everything is wet and it's gonna freeze up.  Probably gonna be pretty dangerous tonight, it's going to get down near 10 degrees and it's gonna be pretty slippery," said Tim McNeal with Talbot County Emergency Services.

So instead of spending the night out, many people have other plans.

"Going home, and staying home," said Meg Gorman of Oxford.

Kamesha Roberts of Denton said. "I'm over it, I'm ready for it to be warmer."

And safer on the roads.
