ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- As super storm Sandy made its way across Maryland late Monday night, state officials warned that the worst of the damage was yet to come. “We're America's weather in miniature today,” Gov. Martin O'Malley said at a news conference. “We've got the blizzard on one side. We've got the waves on the Atlantic, we've got the tidals and the flooding.” After making landfall near southern New Jersey with hurricane-force winds, Sandy was parked over Maryland, whipping the state with wind, rain and snow.

Storms battered the Tennessee and Ohio valleys with tornadoes, high wind and hail before the system headed east. Five deaths were blamed on the storms, including a boy who was swept from his bed. The system also unleashed a tornado in southern Maryland, authorities said. One man was killed and at least 42 people were injured. The twister cut a path through the center of LaPlata, ripping roofs off buildings and blowing out windows, a Charles County spokeswoman said.

A thunderstorm with winds up to 60 m.p.h. smashed cars, downed trees and tore the roofs off scores of row houses in two urban neighborhoods Tuesday. One woman said her daughter was struck by flying glass, but no other injuries were reported. About 150 homes were damaged. Witnesses said they spotted a funnel cloud. "It was twirling," said Brenda Hillard. The National Weather Service did not confirm that a tornado had struck.

A powerful Atlantic storm with winds of up to 70 m.p.h. pummeled resort towns in Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey on Saturday, forcing evacuations, damaging buildings and toppling utility lines. "It's a potentially very dangerous situation. The boardwalks are unsafe right now. There are power lines down. There is storm and sewer overflow," said Delaware Gov. Michael N. Castle, who toured the area.

Bow e Clubhouse --Sign on the side of an old Maryland racetrack. * One of those bitter winter storms in Maryland probably knocked the i out of Bowie, a storied track that was closed for good in 1985, with a tape of saxophonist Stan Getz playing "Thanks for the Memories." Opened in 1914, Bowie is a ghost of a track now. A visit Thursday to the track about 35 miles south of Baltimore indicated that everybody just walked away when it was closed.

The first thing you need to know about this history-rich city is that it is not Fredericksburg, Va., a better known destination that also is a mecca for Civil War buffs. Upon introducing themselves, people from Frederick are apt to add, "It's in Maryland, not Virginia." Frederick is 48 miles north of Washington, D.C., making it an easy side trip -- and a good place to spend several days on the way to or from the nation's capital.
