Snowmageddon Part II?

People love to hate Maryland weather. 60 degrees on Saturday, a big snowstorm, maybe blizzardish, on Wednesday December 16, 2020 through Thursday. Right now, it’s an 80% possibility. But it is Maryland and it’s 2020.

L. Lin Wood, a recent transplant to South Carolina, is an attorney licensed to practice in the State of Georgia, a privilege he’s held for almost forty-four years. During that time, he’s been a member in good standing with the State Bar of Georgia.
