One hundred ten years ago tomorrow, Baltimore saw the latest measurable snowfall on record here. The coastal storm on April 28, 1898, left a tenth of an inch behind, with temperatures dipping to 34. Rain turned to snow and sleet before dawn and continued into the afternoon. On the Eastern Shore, the gale dropped up to 2 inches of snow, damaging strawberry plants as they flowered. Peaches and peas also suffered. A world away, an American naval squadron battled the Spanish in the Philippines.
