CAMBRIDGE, Md.-  Dorchester County schools are on day four of their five allotted snow days.  At Black Water Coffee and Tea in Cambridge, a warm cup of joe is a popular seller today.  Behind the counter, workers here say it was an ugly drive to work.

"Woke up at 5:30 this morning, and it was snowing.  It was more snowy than it is now, it's kind of wet and disgusting.  It's not a pretty snowfall," said Elizabeth Kyle.

She says she's looking forward to summer.

"I like palm trees and sand and warm weather, I do not like anything cold."

Despite the fact that we had close to 70 degree temperatures over the last week, giant mounds of ice still exist in Cambridge following the so-called blizzard of 2016.  While some people are saying we don't want to see anymore of this this winter, others say it would be nice to see more of this.

"I like snow.  I like it because when it comes and it's sufficient, it's absolutely silent.  I live out by the water, and watching those geese, all huddling together, making their little noises, it's all nature, so I love it," said Stephen Hyneman of Cambridge.

At the same time, he has a road trip Friday that take him out of state, so he's glad the roads aren't too bad.

"When you're pulling 3000 pounds behind you, it's not a joke, you have to be concerned.  But snow is not my real worry, ice is my real worry," said Hyneman

As the sun comes out, the roads clear up making for smooth travel around town, and around the peninsula.

    Devastating Fire Destroyed the Old Wicomico Youth & Civic Center 40 Years Ago Tuesday

    40 years ago Tuesday the old Wicomico Youth and Civic Center was destroyed by one of the county’s most devastating fires.

    On June 27, 1977, a floor buffer sparked a highly flammable sealant being applied and, in an instant, the community’s cherished center shot up in flames, dark smoke billowing that could be seen as far south as Princess Anne and as far north as Laurel, Del.
