Gene Heyler lives in Columbia, but he grew up in northern Pennsylvania, where they have names for early spring snowfalls. "There was usually the `Easter snow' ... within a week before or after Easter. After that there were snows named after the cold-weather vegetables, such as the `onion snow' ... I was wondering if there were any Maryland colloquial names for early spring snows." I've never heard of one. Neither has Sun columnist Fred Rasmussen, who would know. Readers? Oyster snow? Forsythia blossom snow?
