Harford in the cross hairs of another big snow

Predictions are for 10-plus inches Sunday night through Monday

March 01, 2014

Harford County is in the path of yet another winter storm, one that some forecasts are suggesting could dump as much snow as any in this bitterly cold, snowy season. Harford County Fire and EMS Association officials are asking Harford County residents to be prepared and to be smart as the storm passes Sunday and Monday.

"According to the National Weather Service they are now looking at 8 to 10 " of snow for Harford County," the Harford Fire and EMS Association posted on its Facebook page at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, "however there is discussion of the potential for up to 14 inches of snow based on the European Model. Cold air will come in behind this storm bringing single digit temps overnight."

The fire and EMS post offered the following tips: "Whatever comes our way remember to use common sense and caution when preparing for and responding to hazardous weather. Don't become a statistic. Stay off the roads, keep generators outside and away from the home, dig out the fire hydrant close to your home, ensure your address is clearly visible on the front of your house, and remember your elderly neighbors."

Richard Gardiner and Jenn Chenworth, the two principal spokesmen for the Harford County Fire and EMS Association, are credited with the Facebook posy.
