Anyone who was saying “Let it snow” in Maryland last week got what s/he wanted (and probably a few fists shaken at him/her). According to numbers from the National Weather service, blizzard conditions dumped from 29.5”-35” of snow between 2PM Friday and 4AM Sunday. By Monday, cabin fever was rampant. On Tuesday, there was a report of a fist fight over who got to go through a street that was only plowed wide enough for one car. It’s Friday, and roads still aren’t clear enough to make it safe for schools to open. Why would anyone want to live here? Honestly, there are too many reasons to count.
Frederick is big enough to have art galleries, great restaurants and shops, terrific parks, and lots more to enjoy, but small enough for people to care for one another. And care for one another, they did. From simple things like Game Night at East of Market Apartments to free lunches at 4 Frederick County Public Schools to get food to kids who may not otherwise get a hot meal…from neighbors helping shovel one another out to residents and businesses sharing cookies and hot drinks with plow drivers…
And the sheer beauty of the blizzard of 2016!
To me, the question is: Why would anyone want to live anywhere else? If you’re interested in living in Frederick, give me a call at 301-964-9988 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. After all, why would you want to live anywhere else?
Did you know: Frederick County DPW is responsible for maintaining approximately 1,150 miles of roadways and 207 bridges. That’s a LOT of snow to remove! (http://www.frederickcountymd.gov/3082/County-Roads-Bridges)
Special thanks to Gail Hambrick Sadler and Hayden Duke for letting me use their gorgeous pictures of the snow!
