Snow Blankets Scotchman Creek & Hacks Point

On this Friday afternoon in late January snow started falling on the frozen Scotchman Creek around 3:00 p.m.  It quickly started covering surfaces as the area has been shivering under frigid conditions for a few days.  But all around Hacks Point, all was quiet as big fluffy white flakes came down for a period as the clipper zipped across the northern Chesapeake Bay.

The siren at Station 9 didn’t interrupt the tranquility of the winter afternoon in this water front community as the service of firefighters and medics at Hacks Point Fire Company weren’t needed.

Although the snow came down in large bursts at times, the clipper soon moved out of the area, but the ground, parking lot and old burial grounds at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church was quickly covered.
