The winter snowstorm that pummeled much of the Eastern Seaboard also dumped a foot of snow on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Cleanup crews all over the Eastern Shore are working overtime to clear the region's streets and neighborhoods of the biggest December snowfall in years.

Ocean City officials admit they have limited resources to keep up with snowfall of this magnitude, but note the two feet of snow that hit the resort in a week's time last winter as proof that the job can be done.

Just few miles up the road, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell has extended the Level 1 state of emergency warning for drivers, meaning that if you don't have a very good reason to be on the roads you're advised to stay home.
