Old-timers in Baltimore may recall a storm that dropped 6 inches on Nov. 6-7, 1953 - the earliest heavy snowstorm on record here. Snow froze on the streets, snarling traffic for up to five hours. Three busloads of Towson High students didn't get home until 10 p.m. Cars, buses and trolleys were stranded amid a scarcity of cinder and sand trucks. Robert Larabee Jr., 8, died in a wreck on the new Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
