January 4, 2010

You never know when you might experience an Epiphany about the American economy. St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Ocean City, Maryland, was closed for renovations last winter. Sunday, I went to Mass at St. Luke’s for the first time since it reopened. The reason: St. Luke’s has an 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sundays, the last […]

A windy snowstorm is shutting down the middle of Maryland on Saturday from the Chesapeake Bay through Montgomery and Frederick Counties. The heaviest snow is not in the Western Maryland mountains, as is usually the case, but in the Baltimore-Washington corridor.

In November, a damaging, slow-moving tropical-storm-turned-nor’easter drenched the South and the East Coast, causing flooding and significant beach erosion from North Carolina to Ocean City, Maryland, and Delaware. Now, in December, we’re going to experience a winter version of that storm, again moving South to North, with heavy rain in the South, and heavy snow […]

Winter has slammed down on America. From Atlantic to Pacific, the weather is terrific. We’re thankful for a roof over our heads. Thank goodness we’re not in Buffalo. Baby, it’s cold outside! Don’t forget to bring the animals in tonight. Dogs and cats prefer to celebrate Christmas indoors. Lily, the Golden Retriever, and Poe, the […]

The shopping days before Christmas dwindle to a precious few, but Winterfest continues every evening in Ocean City, Maryland, through Jan. 1. I believe the town’s motto might be: “If it doesn’t move, decorate it with lights!” The most spectacular Winterfest display is in the Northside Park at 127th Street. It’s open from 5:30 p.m. […]

Winter Comes To Maryland’s Eastern Shore

Shopping in Salisbury On the last Saturday before Christmas, Route 13 in north Salisbury reminded me of Rockville Pike in Montgomery County. As the song says, the traffic was terrific. Saturday was also the last day of fall, 2008. I didn’t venture into the mall; from the highway it looked like the parking lots were […]
