Scenes from Southwest: The Blizzard of '09


Clockwise (from upper left): (1) Icicles formed near the base of the HUD building with the flying saucer-like shelters glowing in the background. (2) I doubt DDOT has this stretch of 4th Street near the top of their list of streets to plow, since this section running through Waterfront Station won't officially open until March 2010. (3) On Saturday night, the snow was still falling and conditions were treacherous on 6th Street. (4) Benches along G Street show that we received well over a foot of snow during the Blizzard of '09.

Thnaks. That will all be gone soon. Blogs are great community services.

Maybe I'm just cranky but I'm not satisfied with the city's clean up efforts three days after the storm. Several streets had broad ice sheets on them this morning, and I would have appreciate even a minimum dusting of sand or salt for added friction.
