Snow Report from the East Coast

Here are a couple of eye-witness reports from the D.C./Baltimore area:

John Ferber:
I'm doing pretty good. I haven't had to shovel since Sat. night, so I'm not too sore. I'll find out in a couple more hours if I have to clear off the car again and head to work today. They issued a blizzard warning from 10 am to 7 pm. Snow isn't coming as fast as the first storm, but winds will be picking up. So even if work is open, I might stay home.

I made it into work easily on Mon and Tuesday. Arterial roads are mostly down to 1 lane each way and very bumpy. Highways were missing a few driving lanes, and had no merge lanes, on Monday. But they got better on Tuesday. The Feds and the kids all stayed home, so traffic wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. Feds are closed again today.

Megan did a lot of house-cleaning yesterday to keep busy. Jared had been planning to fly to MN on Thursday for Trivia Weekend/V-day, but he switched that to yesterday afternoon instead. With the government closed, it's not costing him any more leave than his original plan. I haven't heard from him yet, so I'm assuming he made it out of here fine.

Oh yeah, Megan had been in VA for the weekend. Her Mom and a friend from CA flew in and they met up at the VA house. Megan was out there Fri-Mon. They lost power for 24 hours, but otherwise had a good time.

Theresa Ferber:

I got home on Monday morning and have been resting since then. I hope to get a good sleep tonight and tomorrow because I have to go into work again on Wednesday night. Tonight we got a few more inches of snow and it is supposed to start snowing again in the early morning and last until late afternoon. Hopefully the roads won't be too bad by the time I have to go to work. I will probably have to leave pretty early to make sure I get there on time. I don't think I have ever seen so much snow! Thankfully we did not lose power during the big storm, but a lot of people that we know did. Hopefully our power lines hold up through tonight and tomorrow as well. I have seen 3 or 4 big trees on the ground around Pat's apartment, and there is a huge branch on the ground in our backyard. Well, I should get to bed! I will talk to you soon. Love,

Ferbers can handle ANYTHING!
