We used to have it in Maryland.
Not much this past winter, though.
Well it’s snowing in Maryland on Monday — heavily.
The Cumberland/Western Maryland/Garrett County area is in a geographical position to get pounded following a lovely spring weekend.
Here’s the forecast for Monday from WHAG-TV NBC25 weatherman Tim Pandajis’ Facebook page from early Monday morning: "A rapidly deepening Nor’Easter is cranking its way through our region today. Periods of rain, windy and cold with heavy wet snow in our western zones. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter WX Advisories are currently posted. Widespread power outages already being reported as snow topples trees already in bloom. Rainfall this weekend has dented our deficit but we still remain over 2” below average.”
And here are his recent tweets showing the snow now piling up:

Even our governor spotted it:
On my way to Hagerstown for the Workers’ Memorial Day Ceremony & just spotted a few snow flakes.— Martin O’Malley (@GovernorOMalley) April 23, 2012
Some areas could get up to 9 inches before Tuesday morning, according to forecasts. If you’re in an area of Maryland seeing snow Monday, post your observations below. If you’re not in an area of Maryland seeing snow Monday, congrats!
