View from my window today. Got some nice, sloppy snow. Probably the last of the season.

Nemocalypse, around Northampton, Mass. A couple interesting things about these.
The first pic is of our city’s beloved Forbes Library. A nice man was using a tractor with a snow blower attachment to clear a path. The snow made a nice, fluffy arch and I couldn’t resist taking the shot, clogging the side-walk while I was at it. He stopped the tractor to let us pass.
I just liked the colors, shapes, and textures in the second, third, fourth, and fifth shots. The sixth shot of the street (South 10, bottom right of the pic) is so hilarious to me. Plows in Northampton push the snow into the middle of the road. This allows cars to park in front of the shops. It also makes for an interesting adventure while crossing the street - you’re basically crossing through a 5-foot snowbank with a punched-out doorway.
And the last pic is of a red bike under two sets of wrought-iron stairs. I think a standard bike tire is 26 inches in diameter. So, this non-windblown snow under a structure hit close to 2 feet. Amazing storm to experience.
During and after Nemo from my window. Note the buried benz, bottom left. Sorry for the quality disparity - the night shot is from my trusty LX5, the day shot is from my aging Motorola Droid I.
Probably 18 inches of snow with 4 foot snow banks here in Northampton, Mass. Snow is coming down fast and sideways. Stings the eyes. Hard to believe we’re only half way through.
Notice the half-buried cars on the far right in the last picture.
Two feet? Bring it.
