This is one of the first photos I took that morning. From my bedroom window I saw this. Almost all the cars in my parking were completely covered in snow. In this picture you can see an antenna in the center of the picture.
First of all this was an extreme storm. Extreme meaning way above 'normal'.
People asked "why weren't they cleaning the roads during the storm?" I personally talked to the "plow guys"... many of the guys aren't experienced in this type of storm (who is?). And during the storm they had no visibility on the road.
It is hard enough to plow a snow packed road in a clear night. It is impossible to clear a road when snow is falling at 4 inches an hour. You can't clear a road with no visibility.
This photo is a reminder of why our city puts those "flags" on our fire hydrants.
Wind whips around a hydrant
as it sits snugly in a blanket of snow.
It is times like these why we see the need for the precautions.
I really enjoyed the unique patterns that the wind and snow created.
Its a type of art that I get excited about. It reminds me of the same types of beauty like sand drifts and mountains.
I walked up Lake street to see someone trudging along to shovel a neighbors driveway.
This is where snow changes our world. This person is walking on a city road. But the snow has made it temporarily back into a natural world.
A path wondering left and right.
At the end of the night I took this picture of the stars. It is a reminder that we all live under the same blanket...
