Plenty of pictures online already of what is being named 'Snowmageddon 2011', but I figured I'd throw in my two cents anyway.

Early morning after the snowpocalypse. Someone across the street tried to get out without actually digging his car out. Only managed to swing his front end about 45 degrees to his right. Watching was hilarious.

I had the forethought to put my wipers up when I got home from work EARLY Tuesday morning (like 2:30 am early). Much easier to clean the windshield off that way, once I finally got into the car.

I intend to try and find a shovel when I stop at the store on my way home from work tonight. Ended up paying a neighbor's friend 10 dollars to drag my car out when he was moving his van. Between the 3 feet of snow piled up behind the car, and the 3 and a half feet of hard packed snow left by the street plow, I just wasn't getting out on my own.

As is, I ended up parking up the street in front of the next building over's dumpster, because there just wasn't anywhere to park closer to the apartment that wouldn't block traffic.

On a completely relevant side note, it is a good idea to make sure that there is sufficient space behind the car for the exhaust to get out. Otherwise, you'll give yourself carbon monoxide poisoning when it comes up from under the car and blows into your face while you're trying to clear off your windshield.

Paid two kids ten bucks a piece to unearth the side of Reggie. One decided to come back and help me clear the front for no extra charge.
