Today is the date of the latest measureable snowfall in Baltimore's weather history, in 1898. Officially, it was just 0.1 inch. But, The Sun reported the next day, "this was sufficient to cover limbs of trees on which there was budding fruit." Temperatures hovered at 34 degrees. Strong northeast winds delayed bay steamers and downed telegraph and telephone wires. Also, "Anxiety is felt as to a large schooner, three-masted, disabled by loss of maintopmast, part of foremast and rails and anchored near Chicamicomico life-saving station."
