Default Snowed In (Part II)

Still no plows down my street and it is 7:PM EST, 33 hours after the snow started. I walked to the boardwalk today. What normally would've taken five minutes (two blocks away), took about half an hour. At one point on the way back, I fell into a drift and it was above my waist. I thought I was stuck! With some perseverance, I was able to wiggle my way out, lol.


Not a good sign. This plow was abondoned on Sunset Ave:


These folks thought they could just gun it. Not a great idea:


About the best they could do down one of the main roads:


The boardwalk:


Shops on the boardwalk:


A lot of wind:


Same car from yesterday, even deeper in the snow drifts:

Wow! These pictures are wonderful! I wish we could've had a white Christmas.
My mom is from New Jersey (Lake Hopatcong) and she really enjoyed seeing your snowed in pics too.
Is that the Atlantic City Boardwalk?

Yes, last year was nice because it snowed a week before Christmas, so we had a nice blanket of snow, but the roads were all cleared.

These are actually from Asbury Park. It's going through a slow and steady revival right now.

It's now 48 hours and one plow barely cleared one lane at around midnight last night. I know a lot of people in my building are stranded. Buses still aren't running (there's a stop at the end if the block). I think one fellow walked to the train station, which is about eight blocks away. I'm lucky that I can log in from home. It's pretty crazy. The city website is getting a lot of complaints, but there hasn't been much more than the generic "We're doing the best we can."

Wow it looks crazy there. I am in North Jersey and it is just slightly better here lol. We were able to get one car out so hubby could go to work but some of the roads are still pretty bad. The dogs want nothing to do with the outside lol. Stay warm!
