#Snowmageddon2016

Today, I decided to take a late morning walk towards downtown Plainfield. Here’s what I saw along the way.

A look down Pemberton Avenue towards Cedarbrook Park. I’d say there was about a foot of snow when I left, in most places. Because of the heavy wind, some areas had a lot more or a lot less.

It was hard to walk down Kenyon with all the snow, but got a lot easier when city plows came through – like these two.

Almost three hours later, upon my return, there were at least two more inches of snow.
