A water main break in Catonsville doused a residential neighborhood with an unrelenting tower of water, which quickly froze into thick layers of ice as temperatures continued to plummet Tuesday evening.
On Catonsville’s Garden Ridge Road, residents saw a deep hole in their street release a geyser of cold water. The stream shot high into the air — even cascading over nearby homes into their back yards.
The front yards of houses close to the break are blanketed in several inches of ice, said 32-year-old Michael McClellan, who lives on the street.
McClellan said his porch is covered in icicles, as are his neighbor’s homes.
