While in my studio I look out this window with views
of the two main streets below us.
We had a lot of warning about the coming snowstorm that would last
from Friday through Saturday, January 22 and 23, 2016.
Since my street is on a cul de sac, we rarely have a snowplow visit us,
so I watch the main streets, to see if they get plowed.
The buses and metro have been closed for Saturday and Sunday.
This was taken at noon on Friday.
3 PM Friday
5 PM on Friday
Friday 10 PM
8 AM Saturday, no snow plows anywhere
Saturday 11 AM
1 PM Saturday
White out Saturday 3 PM
Saturday 6 PM
Saturday 11 PM
8 AM Sunday, stopped snowing .
Sunday noon, sun
Sunday about 1 PM several neighbors start shoveling a trench
12 to 18 inches wide from the top of our hill to the cul de sac.
They worked up to the front door of each house.
These very nice neighbors from the top of our hill were exhausted.
I think there is over 2 feet of snow they were moving.
So, we invited everyone who could walk through these trenches
to join us for a cocktail party at 4 PM.
It was a good evening.
Monday, a front loader is stuck at the top of our hill
with a dump truck behind it and now a tow truck has been added.
So we are still waiting for something to happen.
All schools and the government are still closed.
However today the buses start at noon and metro started again.
It is free to ride both of them.
However where would anyone go that is open?
