Without question much damage was done by the recent snow storm. For some the lights and the power went out. Others were trapped in their homes for days because of the sheer massiveness of the snow storm.
Shoveling out was incredibly difficult. In many cases professional work crews had to dig people out. Cars were buried; driveways were non-existent and getting to the store was a major undertaking.
Still, there was a memorable beauty to the storm. It created whole new worlds of splendor. Soon enough it degenerated into muddy piles of dirt and snow, but in its fullest glory here is what it looked like.
