A Blizzard in Pictures






Specifically, the Denver & Front Range Xmas Blizzard of 2006. These particular photos show the storm -- after a few hours of gradually increasing snow --starting to get rolling, as the winds pick up (as viewed from my third floor apartment patio); late morning, the scene in the parking lot is as folks are having increasing problems dealing with the blizzard; two other shots -- one from the parking lot level, the other from the patio -- show the blizzard at its height, as visibility is down to 100 yards and less; and finally, an afterview of the parking lot, once the winds and snow had tapered off about mid day of the next day.

December 20-21, 2006. 'Twas a Merry Christmas and a Happy Snow Shovel, with considerable sarcasm on the latter.

In (eventually) Part II, you'll be introduced to a vehicle rescue, and the birth of Mount Snowphfffft. A birth and maturation in two parts. Finally, you might just be introduced to Photo Diary of a Mad Snow Shoveller...

Now I am homesick.

Actually, I must just be sick in the head because I actually miss snow.

Holy cow... lots of snow but it's such a beautiful sight! We *finally* got some decent snow today. WOOOHOOO but it's nothing compared to what you got there.

Has any of it melted yet? ;-)

Not much snow, was there? Those are actually some lovely shots. Third floor view, huh? Geez. I may have to come visit.

Your blog won't let me comment except anonymously. :)

You couldn't see your hand in front of your face. Literally.
