The 2013 holiday season is underway, and it still hasn’t snowed yet in Bel Air.

There were many weather systems that passed over Maryland in the past few weeks, but none of them have been able to generate snow, because the temperatures were not low enough. However, this does not mean it will not snow any time in the future.  In October 2011, unseasonably low temperatures and a weather system combined to make an early snowfall, now known as Snowtober.

“It’s just really irritating,” said Tim Thurston, a local Bel Air resident who does not like the snow. “It’s dangerous to drive in. It gets inside your shoes and it makes your socks wet.”

“It gets rid of the flowers,” said sophomore Bella Killian. “It covers up the leaves and the grass.”

If the snow were to fall, many drivers may not be prepared to handle it, causing them to slip on the road and crash, potentially causing a serious pile-up.

“I had to drive into a snow bank once to avoid hitting a car in front of me,” recalled Thurston. “I was driving down an icy hill and my brakes weren’t working.”

“The snow is dangerous because it is slippery,” said sophomore Brooke Staton. “A lot of people can get caught.”

Route 924 is often congested during rush hour. If a pile-up were to happen here, the results would be catastrophic. However, it does not seem likely.

“I think most people are smart enough to be careful when snow is on the ground,” said Thurston. “I’m not worried about that.”

Even though the snow can be a huge problem, it is still always nice to look at.

“I look forward to snow,” said Killian. “When the first day of snow happens, I feel really lucky.”

“You don’t have to go to school, and that’s always fun,” said Thurston. “Snow days are a blast.”
