Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Wilma brought snow to western Virgina, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

The storm was worst in Garrett County, the westernmost county in Maryland, where the average elevation is 2,500 feet. A meteorologist for the National Weather Service office in Pittsburgh said the county was covered by 8 to 12 inches of snow.

As my friends over at Whitegrass said:

Tonight: Periods of snow, mainly before 3am. Low near 29. Northwest wind between 8 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Don't get the wrong idea about Ben's statement, Whitegrass is far and away the most honest - nee, the only honest - ski area when it comes to their weather and trail reports.

Looks like the season might start early. Better sharpen the teleboards.
