snow snow snow!!

we got hit hard! armed with my camera, i ventured out into the snow with a couple of trustee sidekicks. i focused on getting shots of German St. (the main strip in Shepherdstown) as the storm continued to pound us with snow for two days.

German Street around 5 p.m. on Friday
taken around 5 p.m on Friday (the first night). it had started snowing at 10 a.m, but didn't actually stick till a couple of hours had passed.

German Street around 7 or 8 p.m.
taken around 7 p.m. Brian and i stopped at the Press Room to warm up for a couple of hours. when we came out, it had gotten dark, but the road didn't look too bad...probably because it had been plowed a couple of times before.

German Street
taken around 1 or 2 a.m. by this time, most cars were buried in the snow. no plows haven't been seen for a couple of hours and the snow on the road was getting deep.

German Street on Saturday around 4:30
taken around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday after the storm had stopped. cars were definitely buried and people were walking around the streets, getting rid of their cabin fevers.

i also got other shots around town. we walked to the monument just before the sunset was it was gorgeous there. that trek definitely paid off.


Potomac River before the sunset

fighting through the thigh deep snow (for me at least) to J's parent's house to dig them out.
we trekked through lots of snow (thigh high) to go dig J's parents out of their house. luckily, they had a good friend who came over with a snow blower...we definitely would not have been able to do it all by ourselves.

now there's a good possibility that another storm is on it's way and ready to dump nearly another foot on us! goodness gracious!

These are so great, Panguin! I especially love the view of the river from the monument. That was one of my favorite landscapes when I was in school at Shepherd. I think I might need to make a print of that to hang in my house, in fact. I love the gentle pink of the sunset!
