Say no to snow

No, you know, we do not like snow.

We do not like here or there, we do not like it anywhere. We do not like it in the road, when we go by any mode. We do not like it on our feet, nor do we want it on our street. Children say that it is fun, but we prefer a baking sun. From the snow kids get their kicks, but nothing’s worse than wintry mix. If we awake to that on Tuesday, it for sure will be a blue day.

Maryland’s State Highway Administration thinks that could happen overnight. If this is your first winter in these parts, or if summer left you with a dose of amnesia, they would have you know that slush makes roads slippery and that ramps and bridges get slick before the rest of the roadway.

“This early in the season, most of us are not expecting to encounter icy conditions while driving,” said SHA Administrator Melinda B. Peters. “SHA crews will apply salt if the rain turns to snow, but with rain starting first, we cannot apply anything in advance.”
