I was enjoying the wonderful weather and complete lack of snow so very much that it almost made up for being away from home for weeks at a time… and then this happened. I know, it doesn’t look *that* bad in the pictures… it’s “only” thigh deep in the unprotected areas and calf deep in the protected ones… but I think Baltimore has fewer snow plows than South Bend does, and residents don’t have enough snow to warrant keeping shovels. And since they don’t have yards for the most part, there’s nowhere to put the snow if they do shovel. I was off work for a couple days, and it was only that short because it happened on a weekend. I had to pay someone to dig my car out, because I didn’t have any way to do it myself.
