A reprieve for valentines

February 14, 1994

Gov. William Donald Schaefer will issue a reprieve today for Marylanders who forgot Valentine's Day -- or were too hemmed in by ice to deal with hearts and flowers.

Citing severe weather that has wreaked havoc on floral deliveries and gift-buying efforts, Mr. Schaefer said he will issue a Valentine's Day proclamation extending the holiday through next Sunday.

"We should help Maryland's florists . . . and any romantics who might not have been able to do their Valentine shopping," the governor said.
