Nobody dreams of a gray, rainy Christmas. But there was nothing merry or bright about the Great Christmas Snowstorm of Dec. 25-26, 1909. The National Weather Service says snow fell 25 inches deep in a band from Queen Anne's County to Dover, Del. Philadelphia disappeared beneath 21 inches. Baltimore measured 10 inches on Christmas Day. Towson got 16. Elsewhere, the Yuletide tempest sank ships and hurricane winds pummeled Rhode Island. Several people drowned in coastal flooding. This is better. Be merry!
