2006 Blizzard Pics
« on: February 12, 2006, 03:14 PM »
The snow had slowed down now (2:45PM) so I decided to go outside and snap a few pics of the snowstorm for posterity. From what I have seen outside, here in Montclair, NJ we have already received 16" of snow and it's still coming down slowly.

Here's a few pics:

Out the front door:


The snow is too thick to walk through as it has not been shovelled by the landlord yet :(

Across the front courtyard:








The last 2 are actually from the window of my Hobby Room looking down 2 stories.

My dog Jack's favorite tree in the front courtyard to pee on:



The back courtyard/parking lot (which has been plowed twice already):






Gina's car completely snowbound:


A closer look at the amount of snow as seen atop one of the trash receptical covers:


I was going to walk around to the oter sides of the complex to get shots of the streets, but there is nowhere that has been cleared enough to pass through easily :( The lot was only plowed because the live-in superintendant has a plow on the fron of his truck.

Anyone else got some cool pics of the storm?

I'm jealous.  We've only had any substantial snow once in the 2 and a half years that I've lived in Dallas and it was no where near how much you guys have gotten just this weekend...

Here's a few pictures from that weekend though...

You're in Montclair? I'm in Caldwell! Small world I tell ya...

We got about as much as you and thanks to the plowing, the snow at the end of our drive way was above my waist. I'm 5' 9" so it had to be at least 2 1/2 feet. Took me a good 2-3 hours to get shoveled out. Yes shoveled, I don't have a fancy snowblower LOL... I should have taken pics but I was too aggrivated at the though of getting dug out...

Thanks for posting pictures. It's been a long time since I've had to deal with any amount of snow, let alone 8 plus inches deep.
