The weather today will be mostly cloudy. Scattered snow showers in the morning. Little or no additional snow accumulation—highs in the mid 20s and a low of 5. West winds of 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Chance of snow 40%.
We received some snow accumulation overnight of about 3.25″ (by my measurements here in Oakland).
Note: The state’s Primitive Deer Hunt will be open Feb. 1-3 statewide. Hunters may use primitive hunting devices — long bows, recurve bows, flintlock, or sidelock percussion muzzleloaders — to hunt sika and white-tailed deer during these days.
The Red Cross blood supply remains at dangerously low levels. As a thank-you for coming out to help save lives during this blood crisis, Krispy Kreme is offering blood donors a free Original Glazed® dozen through the end of January. It is a bit of a drive from here but, to receive the free Original Glazed dozen, visit a participating Krispy Kreme shop by Jan. 31 and present a donation sticker or a digital donor card through the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
We have a special poem submission we will share in the Daily Notes tomorrow! A poem about Deep Creek Lake by an 8-year old DCL lover!
