Enjoying a snow day

January 22, 2001

Baltimore-area residents awoke to 2 to 10 inches of snow yesterday, depending on where they live. Carroll County received the most: 10 inches in Manchester and 8 inches in Westminster. Baltimore County had 6 to 7 inches and Columbia and Bel Air registered 4 inches.

Although this has been a cold winter -- December was the seventh coldest on record since 1871 -- the area has had less snowfall than normal, the National Weather Service says. At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, which has typically recorded 10 inches of snow or more by this point, 3.1 inches -- including 1.9 yesterday -- have fallen this winter. The weather service did not receive an official snow measurement for Baltimore, but meteorologist Dewey M. Walston in Sterling, Va., estimated city snowfall yesterday at less than 5 inches.
