With an array of flowering and green plants -- as well as fruit, gift and special-occasion baskets -- Radebaugh's business has been blossoming since 1924. When snow hit the Baltimore area during Valentine's Day week, the Towson florist rented SUVs for its delivery drivers and asked them to pick up stranded employees and bring them to work. Manager Kaitlin Radebaugh said they managed to get about 600 orders out early, in advance of the snow. "Since we're located in a residential area, we do have a large amount of loyal customers who have been purchasing from us for a number of years, whether it's seasonally or year-round," said Spencer Faftie, marketing director of Radebaugh.
