The Blizzard of 2005 Strikes Cape Cod

Here we go.

Dr. Zhivago Don't Live Here No Mo

Three feet of snow yesterday and now the fun of digging out begins. At least we didn’t lose electricity or Internet so all is not lost. This will probably be the biggest blizzard I see in my lifetime.

Now to figure out how to get to New York for a meeting on Wednesday morning. I think life on Cape Cod has been put on hold for at least three days. Even the local newspaper, the Cape Cod Times, suspended print publishing today and will only be putting out an online edition.

Full gallery of shots taken during the storm can be found here.

Major praise for Google’s Picasa photo application. One of the best I’ve seen, particularly for batch processing lots of images and putting them into web formats. I was able to shoot 20 shots yesterday and have them posted for far-flung family in China and Florida within ten minutes of shaking the snow off my boots.
