Given the city’s erratic history of weather forecasts, he wants to be prepared if another Snowmageddon should hit the city on Tuesday, the day after he’s inaugurated.  Something similar happened to Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen with the crippling snowstorms that hit the region in February 2010, not long after he had taken office.  “This isn’t the type of meeting you can have the first week in office,” Pantelides said on Saturday, two days before his inauguration, sitting down with a group of the city’s top public safety officials at Annapolis' Emergency Operation Center off Taylor Avenue His goal: understanding Annapolis’ emergency response plans and his role within them.  During the hour-long gathering, the Republican mayor-elect was quiet as he sat in the midst of 14 city officials. Behind him, his lawyer Timothy Mumane asked a laun dry list of questions on everything from costs to where snow is dumped during a storm.

Rot creeps in through the windows. Pipes rust in the basement. So, they're asking for donations to preserve 18th-century windows and to replace the heating and cooling system.  "This is not fundraising to promote the house,” said Carol Kelly, its manager. “This is about caring for the ladies.”  Their home is one of the first three-story Georgian mansions in America. Parlor on the left, dining room on the right — it’s a study in symmetry from the 1770s.  It’s believed to be where Francis Scott Key was married.  And it’s where women watch “Jaws.”  “People think we ought to be a museum,' Kelly said  Recordings of Italian opera sit beside a parlor phonograph.  Rock ’n’ roll plays on a kitchen radio.  “These women didn’t come to live in a showcase,” said Molly Smith, trustee for the home.
