Every winter I write about running in a blizzard.  The past few years I've actually run during the blizzard so it was a little more of an adventure.  This year, we got hit hard over night.  

Monday brought round one, which was 5-7 inches (I can't remember the total).  Last night was about 13 inches, so all total we got nearly 20 inches of snow in two days.  

The storm - which I've heard referred to as Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, Snowsuckalot and Snowgasm -  more or less shut the city down so I worked from home today.  By the time I ventured out for my lunch run the plows had come by and conditions weren't bad at all.  But I took the camera along to see if I could get a few good shots.

I live just off this road.  This doesn't look bad, but some roads off this street 
weren't plowed yet and looked unpassable.

 This one, for example.  

Check out that snowdrift.  That's a school or daycare.  Daycare, I think.

This was the only spot that was a little sketchy for me, only because the road was narrow
and I couldn't see over the hill to see if a car was coming.  

It's not too often (never) that I run on the road and have to move over for snowmobiles.

I took the picture a little too soon, but that is the biggest plow I've ever seen.  
They meant business today.
This is a tough week for those of us who refuse to run indoors.  Monday was snow.  Tuesday the roads were slippery from Monday's snow.  Today was the blizzard and tomorrow is going to be frigid.  The low tonight is -7.
