Deep Creek Lake received over 36 inches of snow this past weekend. It snowed all Friday and through the night until Saturday around 2pm. 219 was a one lane highway in the morning on Saturday, and most of us locals were pushing snow through the back roads, since they were not touched until later in the morning yesterday by the county roads. You could easily find 7 foot snow drifts in areas from the high winds on Friday night.
Below is a picture from one of our guests that stayed at On Eagle’s Wings, on top of the mountain. This guest is 6’3″ – that is one big drift!
Thank you to Mariel Schenk and family for the picture, these are friends and family of Western Trails Riding Stables. Also special thanks to Gen Schenk for bringing the tractor up to our house on Friday evening to get everyone out!
