We've had the snowiest month ever (98.7" and counting), the second snowiest winter ever (see graphic), and more white stuff is on its way as we speak. Plus some rain and above-freezing temperatures tomorrow to throw some snow melt and ice in the wintry mix.
The stats (updated daily by the city):
285,728 miles plowed
74,862 tons of salt
174,725 hours plowed
98.7 inches (8.225 feet) total snow fall
While this 'winter from hell' (aka Snowmageddon, among other names) is already a cliched subject in the news, as a visual person and student of the built environment, I have still had lingering questions. For instance, how much snow has there been? How can I make it personal? We've seen graphics galore on the amounts and quantities, but I thought it would be fun to visualize myself buried in the heap:
Yes, that is actually a scalie ("silhouette" used in rendered images) of me.
My entire M.Arch class was converted into scalies, and some of my classmates are featured here as well.
(And no, that dog wasn't part of the class, just there as a height reference and for cuteness factor.)
