I ventured outside to give you a glimpse of what it's like around here after the big storm. We have already had more than half our normal annual snowfall and it isn't technically even winter yet. Above, you see the train tracks viewed from the bridge.
The restaurant across the street.
The wind howled all day yesterday and sculpted the snow. It looks like a view of a distant planet's surface to me.
The sun is low in the sky, even at noon time.
Hard to believe, but we don't live in the mountains.
The street next to our house. The sidewalks are too treacherous, so people walk in the street.
The car is inside the garage. Notice the 6 foot pile of snow the city bulldozed in front of it (fuckers!). I've got to get it dug out before tomorrow when I need to use the car.
Finally, the view from our front door. And yes, it is as cold as it looks.
