Blizzard of 1983

According to family lore, when dad's work moved us from Michigan to Murlyn (Maryland), the real estate agent told us that it only snowed, on average, 2 inches per year. We got considerably more in each of the first few years we were there, including this whammy.

The front page of The Baltimore Sun, 31 years ago today.

Mom went outside to shovel.
She was summarily ordered inside by our neighbor across the street, who in addition to being the neighborhood grandma, was also a nurse.
Murg was born the next week, on time, in the hospital, well after the snowstorm.
