O'Malley acknowledges Md. snow challenges, asks for patience
"Here we go again," O'Malley said at the outset of a news conference shortly after noon at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency in Reisterstown. "As you can imagine, we have a lot of challenges now."
Among them, O'Malley said: Where to put the newly fallen snow after it's plowed? The governor said roadsides are already stacked so high that the goal will be to make highways "passable" for emergency vehicles.
O'Malley also acknowledged a "dwindling supply" of road salt.
The governor asked residents to tamp down their anger with local officials over roads that have not been adequately plowed. "There is no city or county government that is geared up to move all of this snow" as quickly as people would like, he said.
O'Malley's advice: "This is not a good day to be on the roads."
