While I wasn't one of the lucky 1000+ idiots who got stuck on Lake Shore Drive, I did have the pleasure of staying home from work yesterday. Between about 10 p.m. Tuesday night and Wednesday night at 8 p.m., not a single vehicle went down our block, resulting in an untouched blanket of snow that made the block look like a narrow field flanked with some giant blocks of metal. It was pretty cool. Here is what it looked like yesterday morning:
There are several cars on our block, including ours, that will require a solid half-hour of shoveling to escape Skadi's wrath.
Our back porch was equally uninhabitable. I think Harley's out there somewhere.
I attempted to do some time-lapse photography, but I haven't put it together yet to see if it actually worked. If it did, I'll be sure to post it. Of course, I didn't take any pictures for the 7 hours and 43 minutes I was asleep Tuesday night, so there may be some holes in the story.
