July was slightly hotter and considerably wetter than usual. The rain was welcome after an especially dry June. The relief came in two deluges on July 6 and a late month washout on July 28 and 29. There also was the Independence Day soaking that pushed the annual fireworks shown in Annapolis back a day. The July 6 rainfall, measured at the county's official station of record at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, was 1.54 inches.
Rain was due to drench the area overnight, enough of a threat to cancel the opening night of the Big Glen Burnie Carnival. Forecasters predicted from 3 to 3.5 inches of rain before the system drained itself out over the mid-Atlantic later Saturday. Two to 3 inches of precipitation were expected Friday night and another half to three-quarters of an inch on Saturday before the upper level low pressure system drifts east later Saturday.
What's better than a summer evening spent picking hot fresh steamed crabs, gnawing on sweet corn and watermelon, and washing it all down with a cold beer? Doing it for two good causes - local charity and the environment. The Annapolis Rotary Club is ready to roll for its 72nd Annual Rotary Crab Feast at U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Stadium on Aug. 4. It is both generous and green. And several causes benefit. The rotary donates all proceeds to area charities and causes with annual grants.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
