The Radical White

Here's my mom's house as it looked this afternoon. See that shovel at photo right? The snow-covered mound between it and the tree is my car; behind that is my grandparents' car, which never got dug out from the storm last weekend.
I-76 was closed, as were the Blue Route and the Schuylkill, which won't mean much unless you used to live 'round here.
We actually got thunder during the blizzard, like the wind and snow weren't enough. The local news is, of course, having a field day, because they can justifiably hype this as historic — official tallies at the Philadelphia airport are 70+" of snow this season, 42.5" in the past five days. On the network and cable news, there appears to be a showdown of the would-be-clever headlines between "Snowmaggedon" and "Snowpocalypse"; both sound too negative to me, so I'm going with "Snowffleupagus".
