Schoolkids enjoy another snow day off this week

Howard County residents spent much of Friday morning digging out, clearing cars and shoveling sidewalks after the second snowstorm in five days. Between 4 and 5 inches fell while most people were sleeping Thursday night, but road crews worked overnight. Most streets were clear down to wet pavement. For the most part, during business hours Friday, the roads have been great. U.S. Route 40 and St. Johns Lane in Ellicott City had normal levels of traffic moving at posted speeds with all lanes open by the afternoon. Road crews worked all night long and they got a big assist from the brine pre-treatment. Meanwhile, schoolkids throughout much of Maryland had the day off.
