The Blizzard of 2010

Swirling flakes like so many stitches, blanket the earth.
Birds search for crumbs.

From NPR: "A blizzard battered the Mid-Atlantic region Saturday, with emergency crews struggling to keep pace with the heavy, wet snow that has piled up on roadways, toppled trees and left thousands without electricity...A record 2 1/2 feet or more was predicted for Washington. As of early Saturday, 10 inches of snow was reported at the White House, while parts of Maryland and West Virginia were buried under more than 20 inches. Forecasters expected snowfall rates to increase, up to 2 inches per hour through Saturday morning...Blizzard warnings were issued for the District of Columbia, Baltimore, parts of New Jersey and Delaware, and some areas west of the Chesapeake Bay."

And from the BBC: "A rare blizzard warning is in effect for the Washington-Baltimore area. The storm - dubbed "snowpocalypse" and "snowmageddon" by the local media - is expected to stretch from Indiana to Pennsylvania and into parts of New York and North Carolina. Parts of Maryland and West Virginia are already buried under more than 20in of snow. And forecasters say that snowfall rates are likely to increase - up to 2in an hour - early in the day. It comes less than two months after a December storm dumped more than 16in of snow in Washington."

We are right in the thick of it here in Milford - It started snowin' and blowin' (bushels of fun??) late yesterday afternoon and it's still coming down. Crews have dug out the roads but no sooner do they finish, they turn white again. Bob took these shots this morning around 10am and it's been snowing ever since!
