F or those tired of all the excuses mouthed by elected leaders and bureaucrats over their handling - and mishandling - of this month's record snowfall, Ralign Wells is a welcome relief. The Maryland Transit Administration's new chief is willing to admit that mistakes were made, which means he and his agency can correct them. Apparently, Mr. Wells didn't get the memo that must have circulated among county executives, mayors, highway departments and the like to never admit you goofed - or at least to blame your front-line troops manning the plows and shovels when problems do arise.

Ethan Yankellow pondered the last time he saw snow in the Baltimore area at this time of year — and drew a blank. "I don't remember any time I saw snow in October, and I've lived here all my life," Yankellow, 42, said Saturday. The Reisterstown man was among many area residents who marveled at Saturday's wintry mix in autumn, as snow, sleet and rain combined to coat many secondary roads in the Baltimore area while leaving more than half a foot of snow in points west. Throughout the region, the precipitation made for hazardous travel conditions.

A mammoth winter storm delivered a paralyzing punch of snow and ice to much of Maryland yesterday and soaked the Eastern Shore with heavy rain before moving on to the Northeast.The Blizzard of '93 shut down shopping malls and airports, closed major highways and knocked out electricity to more than 100,000 homes as high winds played havoc with tree limbs and power lines.But by late last night, no loss of life had been reported here from a storm described as "a killer" more than a day before it arrived.

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.

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.

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)
