Blizzard 2010: Day Two


Austin Street, though some shops were open, was mostly free of cars.

One of several cars I noticed abandoned. This one blocking the intersection of 71st Ave. and 110th Street.

A different view of the car abandoned at the intersection of 71st Ave. and 110th Street.

Another abandoned car blocking the corner of 72nd Road and 112th Street.

This fellow seems right at home with his huskies as he strolls across Austin, coffee in hand.


Many side streets were impassable on Day Two of the storm.



Icicles dangle dangerously from the Citibank at the corner of 71st Continental and Austin.


One of the more unique aspects to this storm is how the winds kept some sides of the street mostly clear.


One of the bigger drifts I saw.


Crossing Queens Blvd. became an adventure - more like crossing the arctic tundra!



The Library was one establishment closed by the storm, to the dismay of this eager student.



One nice thing - you can walk straight down the middle of the streets to do your shopping!



Shovelers were out in force, searching for that next driveway or storefront to clear.

The Blizzard created many beautiful settings for the holidays. Station Square's tree.



The Blizzard proved too much for even NYC's best drivers, such as this cab abandoned at Ascan and Queens Blvd.


Helping a motorist who thought his car could get through anything. Apparently not.

And I really needed a haircut, too! Drats! 

The Reform Temple of Forest Hills' bushes.

Sudden wind gusts blowing the snow proved quite a challenge the day after the storm.

The Blizzard of 2010, Continued

Here's another batch of pics...













First Scenes From The Blizzard of 2010

Boy, this is a bad one. I've walked through a lot of storms, but this one is a toughie. Strong winds and a ton of snow coming down. I can't believe people are trying to drive through this thing. Anyway, here are the first of my pics...
