Thursday January 16

The weather today will be scattered snow showers, mainly after noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 36 and a low around 18. Breezy, with a west wind around 22 mph, with gusts as high as 39 mph. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible and total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

According to NOAA, a weekend storm system still looks likely at this time. Accumulating snow is expected to begin late Friday night, changing over to a wintry mix through the morning, and finally becoming all rain over the course of the afternoon. Specific amounts at this time are difficult at this point as there is still some uncertainty in the pattern.

Wednesday January 15

Weather-wise for today we have a chance of showers, mainly after 5:00 pm. Mostly sunny during the day, with a high near 55 and a low around 32. The wind will also pick-up in the evening, with a west wind of 11 – 16 miles per hour, and picking-up after midnight to the mid-twenties in wind speed.

I took this photo at 5:45 pm last evening in Swanton, facing north-west through the tree line.  Looks a bit eerie and ominous, yet calming all at the same. Please don’t forget to keep sending us your photos of family, friends and locations at the lake. We love to see them and share with all of our readers. Please send them in to info@deepcreektimes.com.

Meow. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Heritage Service recently partnered with University of Delaware to study bobcat populations in Garrett and Allegany counties. Graduate student Kevin Lamp will present the findings of his research at the New Germany Lake House on Jan. 25th. My cats Lucy and Cashflow are actively awaiting the study report-out to see if any cousins are nearby.

Here’s more information on the bobcat study presentation along with information on state park and trail passes for 2020 in the latest issue of New Germany News.

It’s Open Mic Night at Moonshadow this evening from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.  They are looking for members of the community that are musicians, DJs, story tellers, etc. to share their talents.

Here’s something different: Garrett College will be hosting a four-day men’s basketball extravaganza featuring 17 prep, post-grad and high school squads over the Martin Luther King Holiday Weekend. The MLK Hoopfest 2020 runs from Friday, January 17th through Monday, January 20th at the CARC Gymnasium on the Garrett College campus and will include teams from Maryland and the Northeast region.  A complete schedule can be found at www.garrettlakers.com/landing/index!

Tuesday January 14

The weather for today will likely include rain, mainly between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. The high will be near 55, with a low of about 37. There will be a southeast wind of 8 to 13 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70%. For a national look here’s an update post from AccuWeather on a potential winter storm for the Northeast (with rain in lower states) this weekend. We will likely see a mix.

It’s Taco Tuesday again at Black Bear Tavern all day today.  You get two for $2, either soft or crunchy.  Check them out in McHenry and tell them Deep Creek Times sent you!

Monday January 13

The weekend had some interesting temperature shifts.  Saturday was in the mid-sixties, Sunday got back down to the 30s and was dreary with a little “spitting” precipitation.  Regardless, I saw tubers and skiers at the Wisp on both days. I guess there are no bad days on the slopes.  I certainly understand. There was also a power outage of a few hours on Saturday south of the 219 bridge and into the northern reaches of Oakland.

Today’s weather will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 50 and a low around 37. There’s a slight chance of showers Monday night in the wee hours.

Speaking of the weather, there was an interesting and challenging mix of weather across the mid-west and into Canada this weekend, with the lake-area being spared. High winds, rain, ice and multiple tornados were reported.  The cold weather will stay north early this week, but I wanted to make readers aware in case they were traveling by auto or air.

Thinking about getting your life and/or home a bit more organized in the New Year?  Here’s a simple suggestion piece from Zillow to get you started.  Some people resolve to get in better shape or get rid of troublesome credit card debt. Here’s a link to a study that found Maryland had average per-capita credit card debt of $4,228 to rank third among all of the states. Here’s a link to the study.  Interesting stuff I think.

Also at the state-level, but certainly impacting, and of use to, all at the lake, is the Department of Natural Resources January 2020 newsletter.  It covers such topics as trout stocking, turkey season, and a variety of other topics including 2020 being designated by Governor Hogan as the year of the woman.

This one hurts to report:  The sudden and unexpected passing of Paul Weiler on December 20 has deeply saddened the Deep Creek Watershed Board and advisors and many at the lake. Paul was a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, and served as its Project Manager following his turn as president of the Foundation. His kindness, analytical insights and tireless generosity will be greatly missed. Paul’s family would appreciate donations to the Deep Creek Watershed Foundation at www.deepcreekwatershedfoundation.org. I (Mike) have had the pleasure of working and interacting with Paul on a number of boards and committees and he was a gentle, kind, caring and talented man that will surely be missed.

The Maryland Board of Public Works yesterday unanimously approved more than $18.8 million in Rural Legacy Program grants for conservation easements in 18 counties. Funding from these grants will permanently protect more than 4,500 acres of working farms, forests, open space, shorelines, and wetlands — plus cultural and historic resources — throughout the state.

There are no 2020 easements in Garrett County but an area called “Bear Creek” is part of the Rural Legacy Program. Bear Creek is 31,457 acres protecting the Bear Creek watershed.
