In the news: Snowfall running ahead of normal by 2 feet across Northeast, 10 inches in Baltimore

Reporter Scott Dance of the Baltimore Sun is a great weather reporter and provided a snapshot of the snowfall in the Mid-Atlantic through Monday, February 17. *NOTE: we did get a little more snow on the 18th after the article came out)*  Anyway, his article will provide you with a good idea of how much OVER AVERAGE our snowfall totals are for the year.

Philadelphia is nearly 40 inches ahead of normal, with 55.4 inches as of Sunday, compared with a norm of 15.7 inches by that date. Allentown, PA is more than 43 inches ahead of normal, with more than 65 inches so far.
In Baltimore, 24.8 inches of snow had been measured at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport as of Sunday, according to the weather service. That is a few inches more than the average for an entire season, and 9.6 inches ahead of what would be expected by this time of year.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
