Saw both ends of a very close-spaced double rainbow Thursday evening.Â From the car.Â And only managed to photograph the second end.Â Still kind of nice.
Mostly leftover snow, not new snow. We did haveÂ flurries for the Mayday festival yesterday.
Quite a lot, actually. Lots of businesses closed early yesterday, and the city shut down the bus system.
I had to go out to get my computer fixed (it had been dead since Tuesday; turned out to need a new motherboard), and tried to do other errands but failed.
And then had to find someplace to put my car. By that point I couldn’t safely drive on the side streets, never mind the alley, so my original plan to put the car behind my garage did not work out.
I ended up parking overnight in the Uptown ramp (which they say they don’t allow, but the machine happily charged me $9 this morning).
Then I had to walk home, because there was no other way to get there. Walking in deep snow is remarkably tiring, if you haven’t tried it. It goes down a few inches, and then shifts some direction, not predictably.
I think I would have been happier if the city had let us know they were going to give up and shut down for a while a bit earlier.
I ran around and got some aftermath pictures this morning (the storm itself didn’t look very photogenic to me; there was fog with it).
