Storm Brings 20-22 Inches of Snow to Parts of Carroll County

Residents measured more than 20 inches of snow in parts of Westminster from the storm that began Wednesday evening and picked up speed into Thursday.
Because the snowfall was wet and heavy, residents are working hard to dig themselves out.
Though another round of snow is forecast for Thursday evening, many came out during the afternoon reprieve to shovel themselves out and others, especially elderly neighbors.
Fox 45 spoke with many along historic Main Street in Westminster. Some were unhappy with the amount of wet, heavy snow they had to move from their cars, some enjoyed the beauty of the storm and one resident was in good humor, blaming this unusually cold and snowy winter on “climate change.”
Fortunately, there were not many accidents in the area as most people stayed home and off the roads. However in New Windsor one truck driver went off the road due to poor viewing conditions, causing his truck to drive into a deep embankment on the side of the road and flipping his truck. The driver was not hurt.
Residents expect the cleanup from this storm may take a couple of days.
