Just finished talking with an acquaintance from southern Maryland and he was saying that they got straight rain in the southern half of the state but that in the northern sections it more a case of freezing rain and ice.
As for cement snow, the road plow came back today and finished off my side of the street, so my driveway was the recipient of the mounds of crap that the next door neighbour's wife used to have piled around her car only she bailed without shoveling. (normal for her) So all that ice crap ended up on the end of the ramp and it is not just snow, it is ice the size of small boulders. Took one look at that and headed back to the shop for the shovel i use for cleanup on aisle ???. it is both short handled and has an aluminum pan on it. That did the trick. Moved the large stuff first and then dealt with the soft under-burden. i will say that the plow jockey chose about the right time to do it as the temps warmed up after lunch and all that hard crap became soft soggy crap which would have made shovelling a lot harder due to a higher water content. Also got the sidewalks and mezzanine steps down to the concrete which allowed them to melt down to bare surface so no need to throw salt. Next week is supposed to be mostly colder and clear. Works for me, I'm in rotation for most of the week; Friday is a half-day/single staff and one of the senior staff has claimed it for herself, which is cool.
Maybe too soon for some but, to one and ALL, MERRY CHRISTMAS, and JOY TO THE WORLD. Have fun blowing up your frozen turkeys and guzzling frreezing cold beer. Video of booze incited burn outs in the driveway is expected.
