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.
