Winter Advisory Canceled

Temperatures are rising this afternoon, and the worst weather you should encounter on your way home is a bit of rain. The National Weather Service has canceled its winter weather advisory because of the rising temperatures and lack of percipitation.

Still, it was good to see all those Maryland DOT and contractor plows and trucks along I-95 this afternoon. They were all standing by along the medians and on the sides of the highway awaiting what developed.

The only complaints about road conditions that I've received this season came in December when a small storm struck us earlier in the morning than forecast and the highway crews were out at the same time as the morning rush hour traffic. Roads were being treated for the first time as you were driving on them.

We've had other weather problems since then, but the complaints I've gotten from readers have mostly been about other drivers who can't handle winter conditions, or don't want to try. How have you fared so far?
