Maisie Fischel, a first-grader at Roland Park Elementary School, was asked in class whether snow in July in Baltimore was "impossible" or "less likely." She said "impossible," and was marked wrong. Her mom, Christine, asks, "Has it ever snowed in July in Baltimore?" May and October, yes. July? Not since records began in 1883. But "ever" is a long time. A big volcanic blast might just do it. Google "Tambora 1815."
