The Presidents' Day storm of 2003 that swept into Maryland and dumped 26.8 inches of snow on Baltimore - a record-breaker - caused a partial collapse of the B&O Railroad Museum roof on Feb. 17, wreaking havoc on its collection of historic locomotives and cars. It was this sickening sight that greeted us when my colleague Jacques Kelly and I made our way to the museum a day or two later through snow-rutted streets. There we met our friend, Courtney B. Wilson, the museum's executive director, who with his characteristic ebullience and optimism was trying desperately to put a good face on a dire situation.

Western Maryland is under a winter storm watch going into the weekend, with the possibility of white-out conditions and more than 6 inches of snow. That precipitation isn't expected to reach Baltimore -- but a blast of frigid wind is. A winter storm watch is in effect for Thursday night through Saturday afternoon in western Allegany County and Garrett County, including Frostburg and Deep Creek Lake. It isn't expected to dump the heavy, wet snow that paralyzed the region after Superstorm Sandy, but is raising different concerns.

* Editor's note: According to one culture, one girl's compassion creates the northern lights phenomena. Far to the north by the great Arctic Sea, there once lived a clan of people. During the coldest part of winter, these people lived in almost total darkness. The people feared this time of darkness, most of all because with it came terrible Blizzard, which could destroy anything with its icy winds and snow. Early on, the people came to be known as "the People Who Fear the Winter Night."

A blizzard was expected to dump a couple of feet of snow across New England through midday today, and while Baltimore was largely spared, the storm delivered some wintry precipitation and headaches for travelers. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, dozens of flights to and from the Northeast were canceled, leaving some travelers scrambling to brave snowy roads in rental cars. Others landed there Friday from points north, escaping ahead of the expected 2 feet of snow, only to find limited options for getting anywhere else.

More than 2 feet of snow fell in parts of Garrett and Allegany counties as the remnants of Hurricane Sandy collided with a cold front backed by polar air, closing east- and westbound sections of Interstate 68 in Western Maryland until late Tuesday morning. John Darnley, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Pittsburgh office, said disruptions to telephone service were hampering efforts to put together a complete picture of the snowfall. But in Oakland, at 2,500 feet above sea level, the service measured 24 inches, with more coming down Tuesday evening.

The Spirit's 10-game winning streak to begin the season apparently has caught the attention of its National Professional Soccer League opposition."When you're 10-0, you hope you can win forever," Spirit coach Kenny Cooper said after Saturday's 9-4 loss in Buffalo to the Blizzard. "But teams are getting geared up for us."And the Blizzard had extra incentive against the Spirit (10-2)."They came out flying," Cooper said. "They lost, 17-3, in Baltimore and had something to prove."The real key to the game was Buffalo goalkeeper Jamie Swanner.

Governor Martin O'Malley said Maryland was experiencing "America's weather in miniature" as the remnants of Sandy approached the state bringing blizzards in the west, tidal flooding in the east and wind and rain everywhere else. "This is goin to be a long night," Governor O'Malley said. "The next 12 hours of this storm will likely be the most intense. " Snow was already falling in the western-most parts of the state at 10 p.m. Monday and blizzard warnings were in effect, with 7-to-11 inches of snow forecast overnight in Oakland.

As far as summer jobs go, one could certainly do worse than playing "Diablo 3. " One Reddit poster, "WishboneTheDog," sparked interest and debate about the hit game's "Real Money Auction House (RMAH)" feature with a post detailing how he or she has made more than $10,000 selling items. Having in-game item economies that translate into real world bucks is an old concept for online games, but Blizzard's inclusion of the RMAH has institutionalized the process. What was once the unregulated equivalent of a semi-legal flea market has been turned into Blizzard's own eBay, and "Wishbone" seems to be the first person who has invested serious time into making it pay off. In the past two days, "Wishbone" has answered dozens of questions from other players and intrigued "Redditors" about the process for accumulating such a large sum of cash, the viability of doing this as a profession and the macroeconomic implications of selling in a digital economy.
