Dayhoff Time Flies: An ice storm on February 21, 1902 paralyzed Carroll County Time Flies Sunday, February 17, 2019 by Kevin Dayhoff
Almost 120 years ago. Carroll County experienced a rain and sleet storm that the American Sentinel newspaper hailed as “The Great Sleet Storm,” according to a published account written for the Historical Society of Carroll County in Feb. 1994 by local historian and Historical Society executive director, now Judge Joe Getty.
In 1902, Carroll countians were just starting to become dependent on the telephone, telegraph, and electric power. So you can imagine the paralysis which resulted as The Democratic Advocate proclaimed: “The wreck of the system in this city of the Western Maryland Telephone Company was nearly complete. Two-thirds of the poles were down, cross-arms broken off and wires snapped and tangled all over the city, particularly from the railroad east.”
Lately, February in Maryland has been living up to its reputation and turning into an endurance contest. This column goes best withthe winter movement of “The Four Seasons” violin concerto written in 1723. Who knew Vivaldi invented heavy metal in 1700s?

I just came home from the station at 7:45 p.m., and had no problems at all, except for the person who tailgated me all the way down Uniontown Road Hill by the college. I’m not kidding. Several of the crews that just came in said that it is getting a little slick out there... 12Jan2019
