The Non-Aviation photo thread is getting a bit too big, and Tommy's thread is in the wrong forum. :)

Anyway, here're a few shots I just took around the block around 11:30pm.

^Brian took this photo of Booth Street after the Blizzard.
^Our car, a 2005 Nissan Maxima. Or is it?
^My favorite.
^My apartment building.

Earlier in the day, I broke out the elbow grease and offered my services in exchange for a little cash. My marketing jingle, if you will...

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
I'd like to shovel your sidewalk
How much are you willing to pay?

Well hey, some guy laid down $50 for me to do his driveway and front sidewalk!

Oh, and screw the public school system.

Cool shots Futt, my block in the Bronx look's very similar, except I think we might have a few more inches. And your 05 Maxima looks almost like my 97 Maxima, when I went to dig it out yesterday afternoon I was in snow almost to my waist (I am 6 feet tall) because of the plowing ! Any problems with your camera in last night's cold temps ?

Be safe fellow New Yorkers !

Wow, The motion blur of the plow is cool but the first image is the real winner to me!!! It really gives you a feel of how bad the storm really was. Nice Shots

Ok...these were taken on a ****ty Nikon Coolpix last night....and I am not on my computer, so I can't even attempt to make them look halfway decent in Photoshop. You get the point though. (and thank god for Phil)

When the snow finally stopped...this was my poor car:


...and my street (good job plows! pshhhhh):


Yay for Phil! :mrgreen: (who looks like a ghost in this shot) My car, emerging:


6:30am, Monday:

Stupid groundhog. :x

I had about 18" in Syosset - fortunately, my neighbor has a honkin' big snow blower, and lets me use it.

Here's the back yard, from the second floor window:


And here's the mighty Stratus:


I guess I spent a little more than an hour between the snow blower and cleaning off the cars.

Let's hear it for global warming! :P
