Monday February 9

After a snowy weekend, the weather for today will be rainy, with a high near 44 and a low about 40. There will be a southwest wind 11 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

All-in, we probably had snow of 3-4 inches from Friday through Sunday morning.  Here’s a photo I took for you off my front porch Sunday, just to give out-of-towner’s a sense of the accumulations (after some melting):

After Weekend Snow

First United Bank & Trust recently donated $5,600 to the Garrett County Habitat for Humanity.  This donation was collected during the 2019 Christmas Charity Tour of Homes sponsored by First United.  The mission of the Garrett County Habitat for Humanity is to build safe, adequate houses for those in need who live or work in Garrett County, Maryland.  Nice job to all involved. Here’s the photo of the check presentation:
