The Snowpocalypse 2010

It’s still snowing. Has been for more than 24 hours now.

This picture was taken at about 8am this morning; three or more inches have fallen since then.  The big lump in the lower left hand corner?  My car.

#snOMG Three hours ago. More snow since. on Twitpic

I shoveled my front stoop off, after struggling to just get the door open; my neighbor used his mini-snowblower to get a path (one person wide) cleared on the sidewalk on our block. Then I went out back and shoveled a path to the satellite dish, so I could clear it off and get the local news and continuing weather forecast. (How much more snow?)

The street is impassable. One brave neighbor cleared his Blazer off but was unable to get anywhere, the snow has drifted so high. The blind center across the way had someone out in a bear cat, hauling away some snow, but he’s quit, after leaving a near mountain of snow built up in the middle of the street.

I’m thinking that the plumber is not going to make it on Monday.

And more snow, 3 inches or so, is expected on Tuesday.

Yeah, driving to a SuperBowl party tomorrow? Not going to happen. Instead, I’ll slog my way to a neighborhood bar (assuming any are open) and watch the game there.

  1. I have no idea what it would be like in a big city to get that much snow. I miss the snow – it’s like everyone else is getting it except us! Bob’s glad but for me, if it’s miserable cold then I want snow. Hope you find a warm place to watch the Super Bowl!

    • Hi, Cindy.
      I grew up in a rural area. Snow was pretty but didn’t really stop things. You just shoveled out. The problem in the city (IMO) is that there are so many people, cars, and houses, and no really good place to pile the snow you’ve shoveled without piling it in front of someone else’s house or blocking in their car. Makes for testy neighbors.
      I’m gearing myself up to go shovel a path to my car. I don’t need to go anywhere, fortunately, but don’t want to get frozen in until everything melts some time in May 🙂
