Dockmaster Mary Heinritz said cleaning up after the snow storm was a bonding experience for her staff and the nine people who live aboard their boats at the Magothy Marina, situated on the Magothy River in Severna Park, Md.
The group spent about six hours clearing snow off the docks on Sunday, and pitched in to shovel off the decks of boats with absent owers if it looked like the snow was weighing the crafts down.
"It was a lot of fun. It's been many years since we've had a winter like this. It brings out the little kid in you — we even had a couple of snowball fights," she said.
With stores of salt and plenty of shovels, the group is hunkering down and waiting for Tuesday's storm. "We have to let Mother Nature do what she's going to do," Heinritz said.
