Residents of Western Maryland woke up today to blowing snow that cut visibility and created hazardous driving conditions.
State Police Sgt. Michael Mattingly said the snow had stopped by about noon today at the Cumberland barracks. Earlier, two sections of Interstate 68 had to be closed -- at Savage Mountain west of Cumberland and at Martin Mountain east of Cumberland -- because trucks that could not make it up slick hills were blocking the roadway.
Sergeant Mattingly said 3 or 4 inches of snow had fallen around Cumberland and somewhat more had fallen in Garrett County. He said the skies still were overcast and more snow was possible.
