Friday July 3

Fireworks at Broadford Lake have been cancelled for this evening due to rain.  Rain date is Sunday.

9:00 a.m.   

No rain yesterday.  That's two days, now.  It is likely that the streak will end today.  Showers are expected later this afternoon and tonight and possible for tomorrow.  Sunday through Tuesday look perfect!

Governor Hogan appointed Joe Schroyer, a Garrett County native and resident, to the Maryland Wildlife Advisory Committee.

The DNR Regional office in Cumberland will be moving to Rocky Gap State Park on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

The DNR urges safe boating this weekend and will be out patrolling to help keep it that way.  I guarantee the state police will be in full force on the land, too.  Stay safe.

Also from the DNR; tips on living with wildlife.

Check out the events, entertainment and special park programs and have a great holiday weekend.

Happy Birthday America!

It didn't rain yesterday and just a slight chance for some rain today!    I don't want to get greedy, but it would be nice if the sun came out too.

Wednesday July 1
9:00 a.m.   

A good day yesterday -- cloudy and humid with a brief downpour around 8 p.m.  (Yes, the bar has been lowered to define a 'good day').  Cloudy, chilly and foggy this morning, but we may see some sun later today and just a slight chance for a shower.

I-68 was shut down for about 2 hours yesterday when a tour bus caught fire around mile marker 13.

Eight new laws go into effect today in Maryland. Minimum wage increases to $8.25 today.  Maryland tolls are going down and the gas tax in increasing.  Locally, restaurant patrons are no longer required to order food to purchase an alcoholic beverage on Sunday as of today (well, actually on the 5th).  Permissable hours are still only between 1 to 10 p.m.
