This is the 17th summer that the Weal family has been in the business of dishing out ice cream - the kind of Soft Stuff kids line up to eat. And with the weather heating up and ice cream season kicking into high gear, children are lining up outside the Ellicott City shop, Soft Stuff. "Everybody that lives around here knows about this place," Colleen Lavin, who just finished her freshman year at Mount Hebron High School, said after gulping down a root beer float on a recent evening. Colleen and her junior varsity softball teammates, who typically gather at Soft Stuff on U.S. 40 after games, had gleefully ventured out under gray skies and drizzling rain for a taste.

Soft Stuff hasn't changed much since the Weal family opened it next to the Forest Motel in 1984. The Ellicott City ice cream stand is still open from April to October and still offers premium soft-serve ice cream at low prices. There's still no seating. Customers still place their orders at the window and then take their treats to nearby picnic tables by the motel's pool or eat in the parking lot. The lines still get long, especially on warm summer nights, so customers still have time while they wait to read the menu and make their selections.
