|Maryland - State #11|
From the campground to Salisbury, the principle town in southeastern MD, is only about 15 miles so it didn't take us long. A car passed us that had clearly been snowed on, and its rear window had been scraped and still had ice on it, so I concluded it had spent the night somewhere north of Dover.
I'd thought about doing some sightseeing in Salisbury to keep from getting to the campground earlier than check-in time but, while we were sitting in a grocery store parking lot eating lunch, it started to snow. Not much - just a little flurry, but the flurry didn't stop and I decided if I was too early to go to my campsite, at least I'd be sitting in the campground if it were going to snow on me.
As we drove farther south, we ran out of snow - very reassuring to me as far as driving conditions - and the campground let us check in hours early. Just as well, too, because after we'd been here for about an hour, it started snowing and it didn't stop.
The campground came along with a snow plow on the road after about a half-inch fell.
Except for the campground host, we're the only ones here. Odd kind of feeling, but it's certainly a guarantee of quiet and no dog problems.
I'll spend some time tomorrow trying to figure out what I might be able to see in this state this month. The prediction is for temps in the 50s for much of next week, though that's hard to believe now, but most of the state is north of that Dover line and has been getting snow all day, which may mean difficult access later in the month. Well, hope on, hope ever.
