December Home Checklist from Houzz

December 3rd, 2020

A December home checklist is a list of things to do to make winter in your Baltimore home more comfortable and less stressful. Houzz created a list, which had some good ideas that became part of my list. My list goes more in depth for a number of things that would be good for Baltimore [...]

January 27th, 2016

Baltimore fines for unshoveled sidewalks after snow are a little known fact, but an important one. Baltimore City ordinance states that sidewalks are to be cleared six hours after a snowstorm, per an article in the Baltimore Business Journal.

Potential Big Snow Storm This Weekend
