Actually this is the second time I've lived in Maryland. The first time I lived here I was here for 12 years. Then we got stationed to Hawaii.
My Dad used to be stationed at Pax river NAS.

Some areas of this state are different from others---you might want to try living on the Eastern Shore with a slower way of life than the hectic pace of the western middle area of MD---either side of MD lives an entirely differnt lifestyle than that area. But remember that the majoritiy of the tourists that come down here are from that area so Ocean City is NOT a good example of Eastern Shore hospitality.

Well I can say this, I've been to almost every state and I've lived in 8 different states and Alaska by far has been the best. That's just our opinion of course. People in Alaska tend to say you either love it or you hate it.
Life is WAAAAAYYYYY different there then it is here in the lower 48.

I HOPE TO GO TO ALASKA SOMETIME. THAT'S ON MY BUCKET LIST. I HAVE ALWAYS HEARD IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND WANT TO EXPERIENCE IT FOR MYSELF.

Well, maybe you need an exorcism or something?
My son just came by home and he has heard that the storm front coming thru Tuesday/wednesday might dump another 6 to 8 inches on us. How Insulting!

LOL I like to think the spirit of Alaska is trying to make us feel more at home here since we miss Alaska so much.

LOL I'm from Alaska (only just moved to MD) and we live everyday from Nov to May with snow......and negative 20's to 50's. Just stay safe, use your smarts and you'll be fine.
Try grocery shopping with a 3 year old by yourself in negative 56. That's tricky, but we make it work.

And this new front coming thru does not help---pray that your power stays on---we had to go rescue my youngest from his oldest brother's house where he is taking care of his dogs---his car got stuck and there is no power there---and water in basement--and that son is up working in Delaware digging off snow off roofs---we have nooo idea how to restart that pump when the power comes on. I know if we lose power it wont be off that long---somehow we are tied into same power lines as to hospital and you know that would be the first place they would fix if it goes off as that would be a priority. Keep your heat up so that the house is nice and toasty if it does go off and would take longer to cool off if power goes off. And shut all of you up in one room and burn a lot of candles---they do provide some heat.

DO you need it already? hope not--and good luck--maybe he flooded it.
We went to watch gd for hour and half---it snowed at least 2 inches while we were there---looks like it is coming down even harder here right now.

They closed our schools 2 hours early---and it is already sticking to the roads here---and the bare spots now have over half an inch if not more---and it is not quite 5:30

Most colleges are closed (already) for the weekend. My colleagues and I are hoping to get a bit of work done, but we're also all planning to cook a lot and get a lot of meals into the freezer. My kids will be able to eat decently when I'm home late - whoopee!

So far the snow is very pretty...let's see what's coming next...

Snow is God's way of making everyone slow down and
enjoy the beauty around us.

No worries. Yes, there may be a couple feet of snow. This is 80% guaranteed. But to panic? Geesh. It isn't going to kill anyone who is practical and mindful.

Remember that north of us people are living with 2 foot snows all the time! All the time. I have a friend in Alberta Canada. That is wide open middle Canadian prairy land. They even go to work every day anyway, and I know that is inconceivable to us.

Nature's beauty, functioning well, to keep our earth healthy. -- Just one way to see it.

My son used to work at Pax River and lived in an apt. in California MD. He
still works for the same company but in Crystal City, VA.
He was just telling me that in Alexandria VA they are to get 20" of snow this
weekend. I'm on the Eastern Shore and haven't heard what we're getting
here.
