Some Maryland roads may be in better shape after Wednesday night's snow storm, but residents are still feeling winter's sting.

Maryland is dealing with power outages and stalled cars Thursday as citizens dig their way out from Wednesday's blast of severe weather.

Pepco says the majority of its customers will have power restored by 11 p.m. Friday.

Baltimore Gas and Electric says about 15 percent of their 1.2 million residential customers lost power at some point during the storm.

Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown commended the people clearing roads overnight for their hard work, but says the state's response can still improve.

"So we want people to be able to get to and from work safely and as quickly as possible, and I know a lot of people were stranded out there, so we always look for ways to do things better," Brown said.

Anne Arundel County Police are investigating a hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian overnight. Police say a 77-year-old was hit by a pickup with a snowplow.
