In January 2000, most of Maryland was blanketed with close to two feet of snow. These pictures were taken at the park the day after the storm. As you can see from the pictures, it was a clear, crisp winter day, and the park looked beautiful in the newly fallen snow. I think you will agree when you view the pictures.
A severe weather condition characterized by low temperatures, winds 35 mph or greater, and sufficient falling and/or blowing snow in the air to frequently reduce visibility to 1/4 mile or less for a duration of at least 3 hours. A severe blizzard is characterized by temperatures near or below 10°F, winds exceeding 45 mph, and visibility reduced by snow to near zero.
Technically, the storm we experienced in MD was not a blizzard. Why? The winds never got to 35 mph. For those who experienced it first-hand, it was definitely close enough.
