EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | January 3, 2013
The season for singing about a white Christmas, sleigh rides with jingle bells, Frosty the Snowman and the delights of a fire when the weather is frightful has largely passed, but over the next few weeks, such thoughts and images will become increasingly relevant. Ice skating, snow and winter sports are a big part of the holiday season's lore, but, at least in these parts, not so much a part of reality. White Christmases are few and far between, coming about 20 percent of the time if you count dustings like the one experienced on the most recent Eve of the Nativity.

There was no escaping the snowstorm yesterday -- even on Summer Day Lane. But at least the street name gave Eileen Zuckman, 59, a pleasant thought while shoveling enough snow so her dog -- "he's a very short dog" -- could relieve himself. "That's what you do on Summer Day Lane during the middle of a blizzard," Zuckman said. Across Columbia, residents couldn't escape the snow, despite the colorful and sometimes rosy street names. From Summer Day Lane to Snowman Court, people shoveled driveways, reshoveled driveways, read books and watched television.

Has the city of Baltimore been snowed on crime stats? City Councilman Ken Harris says he doesn't think so. But he's working on a bill, which he'll submit to the council later this month, that calls for an audit of Mayor Martin O'Malley's crime figures. That should put to rest questions that began with several media reports and then, in Harris' view, snowballed into something resembling The Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. "It's like a small snowball that's turned into a snowman that's walking around this city," Harris told me the other day. "It's a snowman, and it's walking around here, over the citizens of Baltimore, and saying, `OK, I'm alive here.
