The Baltimore Sun | December 24, 2012
The National Weather Service issued a snow and sleet advisory for Monday afternoon and evening for a sizable swath of the Baltimore area, warning motorists that roads may be slippery and visibility limited. The weather service predicted an accumulation of between one and three inches of snow in parts of the region. Snow began falling earlier in the afternoon in some areas, and drivers slowed along area roadways as flakes filled the sky. Sandra Dobson, a State Highway Administration spokeswoman, said 38 drivers and other personnel were keeping an eye on the roads, and began salting in northern Baltimore County shortly after 4 p.m. The NWS forecast change, issued around 1:15 p.m., predicts first snow in the early afternoon, followed by a mix that includes sleet and rain, tapering off around 8 p.m. for Howard, Carroll, Harford and northern Baltimore counties.

We're back today with Debra Thomas, formerly of Philadelphia. She asks: "I'm experiencing my first December in Baltimore, and it has been lovely. Is it ... a fluke year, or are Baltimore's Decembers (and winters) sunnier than Philly's? If so, why? The Chesapeake Bay?" The bay might moderate temperatures a bit. We do get 2 inches less snow in winter than Philly, on average. Otherwise, both cities see pretty nearly the same winter weather. Face it, Baltimore's just a nicer place. Every day seems sunnier here.

Baltimore appears in for its largest snowfall in at least two years. A storm that has dumped as much as a foot of snow across much of the northern Plains and Midwestern states is due to reach the mid-Atlantic overnight Tuesday. Stay tuned here for forecast updates Tuesday. 5:18 p.m.: National Weather Service forecasters said a tricky rain/snow line and surface air temperatures expected to be slightly above freezing could limit accumulations along Interstate 95. But to the north and west, intense bands of snowfall could form.

The great simulcasting experiment, intended to save New York horse racing from the ravages of winter weather by televising races from Florida, was foiled yesterday by winter weather.The snow and ice storm that swept across the East Coast forced Aqueduct Race Track in Queens to cancel its inaugural program of seven live races plus the five that were scheduled to be imported from Gulfstream Park.bTC Racing officials and stewards decided early on that the track was too slippery for jockeys and horses to run the live races and that the roads were too hazardous for the public to travel to the track to bet on the Florida races.

Though precipitation is expected to be light, it could cause icing problems on bridges, walkways and highways.

New York ushers in a new era in betting on horse racing today when Aqueduct Race Track and Offtrack Betting parlors across the state take bets on seven live races at Aqueduct plus five that are to be televised from Gulfstream Park in Florida, 1,100 miles away.The format was approved last month by the Legislature and was signed into law by Gov. Mario M. Cuomo as the alternative to closing down winter racing in New York for perhaps six weeks.A new law was required because simulcast betting on "imported" races had been limited to 50 races a year under an earlier law adopted to protect live racing.

Hundreds of years ago, Halloween ornaments were displayed throughout Old World landscapes to scare off the unwelcome spirits of deceased relatives that insisted on paying their living relatives a visit on Halloween. But just like today, some of their Halloween displays weren't as frightening as they could have been, because their plant-life backdrops were mundane. There's nothing particularly frightening about scary-looking Halloween ornaments dangling from or peeking from behind commonplace trees and shrubs.
