Snowpocalypse 2011 in Pictures

Well, sort of... because the roads are pretty much closed around here, I can't get out of my parking lot. That's probably for the best.

But still, Connecticut -- and much of the eastern half of the country -- got dumped on with End Times levels of snow today. I went out at noon to move my car so the snow plow company could plow my part of the lot, and the snow was waist high. And it's still snowing.

The picture above is the first one I took this morning, around 9 a.m., when I realized there was no way I was going in to work. Those two little black things sticking out to the right of that parking sign are the only evidence that my car still exists. And when I went out at noon to clean it off, it had gotten much worse.

I didn't take any pictures of the cleaning process, since I was busy, you know, actually cleaning off the car, but here's some fun ones of the aftermath -- which is still going on.


The so-called path from my front door to the parking lot. You can see how they've just formed walls, rather than clearing everything.


My emptied-out parking space, which still hasn't been plowed, three hours after I moved my car.


My car, across the parking lot. I've had to move it three times already, to make room for the plow or other cars.

The view from my window. It's almost pretty. Except I hate snow and want everything to die. 

Snow drifts on the roofs. I'm glad I have a first-floor unit, otherwise I'd be worried about the structural integrity of the roof.

That is not my tire in the snow. That is an impression of my wheel and tire in the snow wall left behind after I moved my car. Yes, it truly is snowpocalypse.

I'll keep taking pictures throughout the day, since now it's not supposed to stop snowing until 7pm, and add them to this slideshow. Enjoy!
