Hoth Township, NJ

A couple of snapshots from the Boxing Day blizzard of twenty-ten in the Jersey burbs...

We'll see THAT guy in hell...

It's a good bet the Empire knows we're here...


The township website claims that snow plows are at work on our street right now, but from our vantage point, we can't get visual confirmation on that (our house is situated so that we can't see either end of the street without venturing partway down the block). A lot of people are unhappy with how fail the snow removal and road clearance in New Jersey has been in the wake of this snowfall. Lucky for us, Mom extra-stocked up on groceries in anticipation of the holiday visit from my nephew, my sister, and I so we haven't had to go after the rabbits in the backyard...

Yet.

* UPDATE. 2-ish pm. The plows have come thru! It meant having to bust thru the resulting wall of ice and snow at the end of the driveway... twice... but hey, we're free to swarm Wegman's!

The first transport is away!

Hrmm... maybe we were better off not plowed...

Keep on keepin on~

* January 2, 2011. Found a couple of other Hoth-ic riffs on the Snowpocalypse. Check out Brooklyn.

OH MY GOD. (Exclamation aimed first at the awesome Hothic photo subjects, and then aimed at the alarming amount of snow.)

Yeah, the snow started coming down overnight on Xmas, I think, and my family didn't, couldn't, leave the homestead from 12/26 Sunday morning to 12/29 Wednesday afternoon when plow trucks finally got to our road. I believe the snow stopped falling by Monday morning, and, well, you can see how much was dropped on us.

You can see some more, pre-FX, shots from Hoth Township here.

(Note: had to delete and re-post cuz I had the wrong URL for the pics. : P)
