Snow in Montgomery County: Photos from Wheaton, Silver Spring, Rockville

A rare March snowstorm keeps some inside but work—and play—goes on.

Officials advised people to stay off the roads, agencies issued winter storm warnings and forecasters suggested that the area brace for a significant snowfall.

And while most in the DC area did not see the multiple inches of accumulation predicted, there was enough bad weather for officials to close schools and government offices.

Plow drivers took to the roads, shovelers took to the sidewalks and sledders took to the hills. 

But Skip Mills, whose grandchildren are seen sledding in the pictures and video above, said, "I am happy to bring them out, but told them [I] was staying in the car."

This was for the Kensington area the snow that went absolutely nowhere. In my many years as a resident I have never seen less snow and more hot air anywhere!!!
