Maryland, or at least the part east of Hagerstown, is not known as an especially snow tolerant place. The mere threat of snow in the forecast has been known to cancel school days, close government offices and unnerve adults. So there is something noteworthy that as Maryland and much of the Northeast got socked with its most significant winter storm in years, that many K-12 public school students were dutifully attending class Monday, and many adults were diligently working away at their jobs, too — albeit virtually for both.
A snow day like no other
