TOWSON, Md. - The official start to winter is still about two weeks away.
Still, that hasn't stopped Mother Nature from bringing a healthy dose of winter weather to the Baltimore area over the last three days.
Following Sunday's initial blast that brought close to a foot of snow to some communities, Tuesday's storm blanketed the region with another 4 to 6 inches.
While crews were out plowing the roads and others were forced to shovel out their driveways, the wintry mix gave most students in the area a two-day break from school. The days off gave them a chance to go sledding, build snowmen and just have fun with their friends.
