As Baltimore digs out from a record-setting blizzard, former Baltimore Sun reporter and celebrated local author Rafael Alvarez remembers another storm: the 22-inch blizzard of 1996, when Alvarez fought against the elements to wish his daughter a happy birthday. Alvarez reads an excerpt from his new book, "Crabtown, USA," a nonfiction anthology about life in Baltimore. The book is available at The Ivy Bookshop.
