The slow melt
We’re almost 2 weeks out from the last of the snow, and it’s amazing how much is still left, even though it hit 50 degrees yesterday.
Our yard is still entirely white, with no patches of grass visible yet. The truck that got stuck across the street before the storm is still there. My office is on 15th street, and even though it is a snow emergency street (e.g. you’re not allowed to park on it during a storm), the entire parking lane on the other side of the street is still full of snow and ice. Parking lots are still full of icebergs where the plows left them. I had to climb a 2 foot pile of ice to feed the parking meter near the Building Museum on Saturday.
And don’t get me started on the potholes…
