Baltimore area residents looking to commute to work this morning will find several lanes on the major highways open as plow trucks worked overnight to clear paths, according to city and state transportation officials. Sections of the Baltimore Beltway, Interstate 83 and Interstate 95 were cleared down to the pavement, and several downtown arteries like Charles, Calvert, St. Paul, Pratt and Lombard streets were plowed low enough for traffic to pass. But transportation officials warned that Maryland roads will continue to be tough to navigate throughout the day. Baltimore officials at 5 a.m. began allowing non-emergency vehicles to travel city roads, although parking restrictions remain in place along snow emergency routes.

A rusted old Chevy Impala fell victim. As did a new red Cadillac. And a block over, Thomas Saunders' gold Grand Caravan also was hit. On Monday morning, residents in one corner of West Baltimore woke up to find that someone had shot out their car windows. In the chilly air, a group of police officers looked over the damage and took reports. Neighbors, on their porches and in the street, looked on. "This used to be a really nice street," Saunders, 57, said. In all, police counted at least eight damaged cars in the 2200 blocks of N. Dukeland St. and N. Koko Lane.

An 87-year-old woman being transported from a West Baltimore adult day-care center Monday was left overnight in a van - apparently overlooked by the driver. "It's absolutely outrageous," city Health Commissioner Dr. Peter L. Beilenson said last night. "When you're driving a van for the elderly or disabled, you count how many you take in and how many get off. It's not rocket science." According to Beilenson, the driver left Raven's Medical Adult Day Care Center at 5:30 p.m. with several elderly passengers - including the woman, who was believed to have fallen asleep in the back.

Baltimore police commanders have postponed plans for an $11,000 overnight retreat, saying the event would be a distraction as the department grapples with crime and budget woes. Using money seized from suspected criminals, the department had planned an overnight training retreat at Leakin Park's Outward Bound center. According to documents filed with the Board of Estimates, nearly 50 commanders would have participated in a program that included "use of low ropes activities, a combination of problem-solving games, and elements of the high ropes course."

Question: What's green at the anchor desk, but deep in the field?Answer: "World News Now," the overnight news service, which ABC News premiered early yesterday morning.The program, which airs from 3:30 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. daily on WJZ-TV (Channel 13), is clearly superior to the on-the-cheap overnight news services offered by CBS and NBC. But, if you have cable, it is not yet enough to leave CNN or even CNN Headline News for.Like the overnight newscasts on CBS and NBC, "World News Now" is in part an attempt to keep network affiliates from establishing additional ties with CNN, the all-news cable channel.

Starting April 10, Baltimore's 311 Call Center will take only urgent requests for service between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., saving the city $500,000, officials announced Thursday. Urgent requests such as animal control, water service interruptions, water main breaks, overflowing sewers or flooding basements, traffic signal outages or debris in roadways will be directly routed through a telephone tree to radio dispatchers for appropriate departments, such as Public Works or Transportation. Shrinking the hours eliminates 11 positions, but no one is expected to lose their jobs because operators are expected to transfer to other openings.

Though overnight storms weren't as severe as forecasters had feared, they still downed trees and brought large hail to some areas north of Baltimore. Meteorologists had cautioned of risks of isolated tornadoes across the mid-Atlantic Sunday evening, but those dangers did not materialize. WMAR-TV meteorologist Mike Masco explained that dry air pushing into the region limited severe weather chances over Maryland, while dangerous weather was developing to our north and south. Some powerful storms nonetheless caused damage across northern Maryland.
