Over the course of the last two days, we have been in the throes of a Nor'easter. Over twenty inches of snow fell in Central Park, and at least one individual was killed by a falling tree limb.

I spent over and hour and a half digging my car out, finding (to much dismay) that a small branch had fallen, putting several small cracks in my windshield. Grrr...

The local roads were a mess, but the major roads were well plowed. The highway I usually drive on to my part-time job was clear, for the most part, but an ancient tree had fallen, blocking one lane of traffic north of Tuckahoe Road. Not having a dashboard camera like some guys, I missed out on a dramatic shot.

When I got to work, the parking lot was clear, the snow had let up. Just so you all feel a twinge of jealousy, I took this picture "on the job":

The storm devastated trees on-site, though:

It would be wrong of me to gloat about the fact that my corner of Rhode Island hasn't seen more than a few inches of snow in February, so I won't be gloating. Because that would be wrong.

Nice pics!

It snowed here, too.

The old snow never melted, so now it's got pretty new snow on top of it.
