Snowpocalypse - 2nd round

The 2nd round of the storm came through last Wednesday and I spent the day cooped up inside knitting and catching up on past seasons of LOST. By the time Thursday came around and we had another snow day at work, I was going batty. I needed to get out of the house.

After shoveling and then shoveling some more, I threw on the layers and grabbed my camera to see what was going on in the neighborhood. After getting 28 inches over the weekend, and then another 17 inches only 4 days later, I had to get out and witness the city as it had never been seen before.

Do you see the snowboarders waiting for their turn? As I was walking home, I saw a few boarders locking up their snowboard to a bike rack outside Bishop's Collar. That's a first.
