A storm that was feared to bring another bout of wintry precipitation to the region Wednesday looks to keep snow to the north of Maryland, but for a possible dusting by early Thursday. Temperatures are expected to be in the 50s when showers arrive Wednesday afternoon, but with temperatures plunging as a cold front moves in behind the rain, according to the National Weather Service. Lows early Thursday were expected in the mid-20s, bringing a chance that any precipitation lingering into the early morning could fall as snow.

When discussions turn to the government, they usually relate to a cast of elected officials ranging from town council member to president of the United States. Invariably, everyone with a knowledge of the comings and goings of these people who have been elected to office has a view of government that is deeply colored by impressions left by the people entrusted by the voters - reasonable or otherwise - to be at the top of the managerial pyramid. Meanwhile, there's a government that operates where the rubber meets the road, and this harsh winter has left some of those public servants with few opportunities to take a breath.

The snow continued to play havoc with school schedules Monday, delaying the beginning of state testing in some places and keeping students home for yet another day. All Baltimore-area school systems have used more days than allotted in the school calendar for snow and must find ways to make up those days. School districts also are adjusting their schedules for state testing, which was scheduled to begin Tuesday in some counties, as some students still might have trouble getting to school or focusing on academics.
