Blizzard 2/1/2011

Iowa City had a severe blizzard last night, at least 15 inches of snow and 40 mph winds. The National Guard has been mobilized to handle a snow emergency. I always get stuck in my parking lot when it snows like this, and it can take a couple of days for the plow to dig us out. When the storm was over, this is what I saw.

The wind was at just the right angle to blow the snowdrifts away from my car. Everyone else is buried 4 feet deep.


Update: The plow finally dug us out on Feb 4, three days after the blizzard.
