30 inches of snow and no place to pile it up. Snow waist deep and my drive way is shoveled but the street is impassable. Small town cannot dig out fast enough Hoping for warmer temps to help (40 degree F). Mother Nature is not nice at times

I was there for the 2010 version (statistical worst), but just as grateful to be gone for this go-round!
In Fairfax County (just outside DC), there's a lot of reliance on private contractors to plow snow (in lieu of investing a lot of tax money on expensive equipment that will typically sit idle at least 355 days a year). It can take days to get to smaller residential streets--heard from an old friend that a plow had finally appeared on his cul-de-sac, but it got stuck and had to be dragged out!
Even when the little streets get plowed, that often leaves a big crusty dike in front of individual cars. UGH!

Philadelphia survived. We had almost 2 feet, but the snow is all gone now. The 60 something degree weather and rain helped to melt the snow. I went for a walk to my neighborhood's park during the storm, and there were lots of folks out sledding and building snowmen. So we had quite the army of snowmen in the park! The biggest mystery of the weekend was the unexplained ladder standing in the snow in the park. I took quite a few pix while out and about. Mostly I used the enforced homebound-ness to work on some projects, test out the new space heater, and to watch a lot of netflix and the Man in the High Castle (excellent!). There are rumors that we might have some sort of snow next week, but ??
