AFTER THE STORM

Whew.  It's over, at least for the time being.  The Storm of the Century has come and gone, leaving much of the Mid-Atlantic region paralyzed in its wake.

Today it is above freezing and some snowmelt is already taking place, just in time for another storm this weekend.

This is my street.  The views from the living room and front stoop are half a story above grade.  The mounds  in the street are as high as a person.  Already the snow has settled quite a bit.  When it was fresh the cars were buried up to the windows, with about two feet of cover on the roofs and hoods.  Most of the cars had already been cleared once before the second storm hit.

Though the storm has passed, much of the city is impassible.  It is still very quiet - no sirens, no trains, no sounds of disturbance.  This too shall pass, I suppose.

It's been nice while it lasted.
