As Howard County recovers from Monday's snowfall, some said the winter weather event was anticlimactic.

"Snowfall totals were a bit less than was expected," the Howard County Office of Emergency Management reported, "but it still impacted travel on our roadways."

The snow left approximately 3.2 inches of precipitation in Columbia by 10:10 a.m. Monday, according to an unofficial report from the National Weather Service.

Simpsonville got 4.7 inches, Woodstock and Savage had 4 inches and Ellicott City got 3.1 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

Classes were canceled in the Howard County Public School System, and Howard Community College started at 10 a.m.

Plow crews were still out working to clear the roads Tuesday. "...with around 1,100 miles of roadway in the county, it takes a while to get to every street," according to the Howard County Office of Emergency Management.

Really surprised how poorly plowed Harpers Farm Road was at 11:00 a.m. today. It's usually very clear the second day after a storm.
