First Snow in Ocean City, MD, Dec. 16, 2010

December 16, 2010


Snow on the Beach and Boardwalk All quiet on the Ocean City Boardwalk, looking south from North Division Street. It’s been snowing all afternoon in Ocean City, Maryland, and we’ve clearly surpassed the “less than one inch” that was predicted for today. The boardwalk was snow-covered Thursday afternoon. No one was stirring on the boards, […]

A March Friday

March 12, 2010


The Maryland weather in March — I’d rather not talk about it. Thursday night was cold, damp and foggy in my part of Maryland.  After a string of 60-degree days, I forgot to wear long underwear to work Thursday night. That was a mistake. I had reason to be on the upper floor of a […]

Blue heron wading in a roadside storm water ditch in West Ocean City. I’ve been stalking the elusive neighborhood blue herons (are there two of them, or more?) for over a year. It’s not that easy to get a good picture of one, unless you have a long-distance lens. A heron will sit calmly and […]

Ocean City: Streets Wide Open and Clear to the Pavement

February 12, 2010


It’s not the end of the long winter in Ocean City, but you can see it from here. Ocean City emerged from this week’s Maryland-wide blizzard with little additional accumulation of snow, and melting commenced on Thursday. In other words, Ocean City is ready for the first big holiday weekend of the year, President’s Day […]
