Winter storm is not over yet

The snow that coated most of  the state on Wednesday resulted in more  than 170,000 power outages; power for some might not be restored until Friday.

Sleet and ice have prevented Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. from restoring power, but utility officials said they are hopeful that by late Thursday evening most will have power back on. Repair work has been slowed because of trees that fell during the storm.

But the storm is not over. Strong winds are expected to cause new outages and more wintery mix should be coating the roads overnight.

Many residential roads have yet to be plowed, making it nearly impossible for some to get to work or leave their residences. Most of the outages were in Baltimore County and Carroll County.

Forecasters are predicting warmer temperatures, but it’s still close to freezing in many parts of the state.

Baltimore Post-Examiner Staff

Baltimore Post-Examiner is run by several journalists – some who worked at the Washington Post, Baltimore Examiner and other regional and national publications. It’s the Post-Examiner because we love the play on the word “Post” but we also are hoping to answer that question: What’s next after newspapers? We see a lot of websites come and go – and many simply are not making it for various reasons. Now celebrating our sixth year of offering our readers "a little bit of everything" we continue to break that cycle. Contact the author.
