Temperatures were in the mid-50s on Saturday and Sunday in Pikesville. Monday's high could be 59 degrees, although it could be cloudy.
The sun and temperatures in the mid-50s meant it was time to get out and walk at Quarry Lake. Dozens of people traversed all or part of the lake perimeter, while others strolled the shops' sidewalks. Patrons of Starbucks and Pizza Blitz enjoyed the day at those businesses' outside seating. On Monday, the National Weather Service forecasts clouds in the Pikesville area, although the high temperature could reach 59 degrees. It could rain overnight Monday, into Tuesday morning.

However, a robber was waiting for him on the first floor, pointing a black, long-barreled handgun at him, the report states. The thief stole cash, a cell phone and the pizza in a pizza bag.

I went for a drive through the shopping center at Quarry Lake and stopped in for the first time at Pizza Blitz, where I found delicious pizza made from an Italian recipe.
Employee Justin Golliday at Pizza Blitz said the pizza here is the best in Baltimore. I tried a slice: cheese pizza with black and green olives and mushrooms—and it was fantastic. It had a delicately crispy crust, thick toppings, and was very tasty. While I've tried only a few pizza places in the Baltimore area, I recommend giving Pizza Blitz a try. Owner Luigi Starace—who has been in the restaurant business for 15 years, both in Naples, Italy, and in the U.S.—says he uses an old, Italian recipe passed down through generations. "We make it the way people used to make it back in our country," And they use fresh ingredients, he said. Of course, he won't share that recipe (I asked what makes it so good!). Starache said he chose Pikesville for…
