Postal carrier Jonathan Edwards had nearly finished his route Tuesday afternoon when he made a right turn from S. Curley Street onto Foster Avenue -- or tried to. His small mail truck spun its wheels in the snow before getting stuck in the middle of the Canton intersection. Edwards was philosophical about his predicament. It was the first time all day that he had gotten waylaid by bad roads, he said. And he'd fallen just once -- "my very first delivery, flat on my back." "It's not that bad," he insisted with a weary smile, noting that people had kindly offered him parking spots and had done a good job clearing sidewalks.

N o need to dream of a white Christmas this year. With nearly two feet of the stuff on the ground thanks to last weekend's record December snowstorm, anything short of a sustained tropical heat wave between now and Friday has pretty much guaranteed that snow will still be blanketing the region for the holiday. And while the storm caused no small inconvenience to people - for retailers, losing the Saturday before Christmas, one of the busiest shopping days of the year, is particularly worrisome - it's hard not to view the big storm of 2009 as something of a success.

Meteorologists are tracking a storm that could reach Maryland by Friday afternoon and leave behind as much as a foot of snow by the time it ends on Saturday. "This one certainly has some credentials," said Steve Zubrick, science and operations officer at the National Weather Service forecast office in Sterling, Va. "It's probably the best-looking chance for measurable snow we've had since December." Zubrick was cautious. "We would be looking at a potential for more than 4 inches in some parts of the mid-Atlantic region," he said.

At the Paca House in Annapolis, scene of dozens of weddings each year, chief horticulturist Mollie Ridout is sighing with relief: The hemlock hedges that line the bride's walk down the aisle look like they survived. But at Baltimore's Cylburn Arboretum, some of the 100-year-old boxwoods might not have. The heavy snow splayed open the upright hedges as if they were roses past their prime. Homeowners all over Maryland are assessing the damage to their trees, shrubs and gardens from nature's one-two punch this week.

It has been 280 days since it snowed in Maryland, which would nearly be a record but for a trace of sleet last month. The streak has been running since March 6. The day before that, traces of snow and rain were recorded at BWI Marshall Airport. National Weather Service officials said earlier Tuesday the streak meant Baltimore was a week away from setting a record for its longest stretch without snow. But that overlooked the mix of sleet and rain that fell Nov. 13, which cut the streak short at 252 days, for record-keeping purposes.

Question: When branches are covered with snow should I knock it off? My shrubs were bent down to the ground. Answer: Natural snowfall is nature's great winter insulator, protecting frozen branches and roots from extreme temperatures and its weight seldom causes damage. Even when bent double by snow, the resiliency of most plants is astonishing to witness, as they spring back upright when snow is gone. However the weight of ice and very heavy wet snow can break branches.

Light rain is still in the forecast for Tuesday, and it could turn to snow in northern suburbs along the Mason-Dixon Line, according to the National Weather Service. The Baltimore/Washington forecast office is calling for less than an inch of snow across northern Baltimore County and much of Frederick, Carroll and Harford counties, with 1-2 inches possible in areas closest to the Pennsylvania line. Check the office's snow forecast map for updates. Precipitation, whether rain or snow, is expected to start after midnight Tuesday and continue on and off through early Tuesday afternoon.

Welcome back, snow. We've been expecting you - with everything from brine-covered roads to "shoe grippers" to four-wheel-drive vehicles that can ferry doctors and nurses to area hospitals. With up to 2 feet of snow in the forecast, the Baltimore region was bustling Thursday with pre-storm preparations. People, as they always do, bought shovels and snowblowers and raided supermarkets. At least one entrepreneurial-minded man got himself a plow-mounted four-wheeler to earn extra money.

If you thought you were freaking out during the flurry of fourth-quarter touchdowns at the end of the Ravens' epic win over the Vikings , check out this GIF of Poe after Jacoby Jones' 77-yard kick return (the third of five TDs in the final 2:05). Apparently Poe loves the snow. No word on whether the Ravens mascot tossed any snowballs in the direction of Adrian Peterson (just kidding, Vikings Nation). (GIF by Kevin Richardson/Baltimore Sun)

Footprints in the snow led police officers to a man they believe had just broken into his neighbor's Glen Burnie home Wednesday morning, Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said. A 39-year-old woman heard glass break around 2:28 a.m. in her home in the 200 block of Queen Anne Road and went to investigate, he said. When she encountered a man, he ran out, Mulcahy said. Responding officers followed tracks in the snow to another house on the block, where they arrested a man who had wet clothes.
