Hoboken Snow Scenes Feb 10th Part 2

2/10/2010:

Here’s another round of snowy Hoboken photographs from yours truly – as well as Hoboken411 reader Jamie!

Life accumulates along with the snow

Picked a few images from my travels around Hoboken today (6 miles so far according to my Fit Bit!)

Some highlights here are from Elysian Park (are those snow figures City Hall members or from the cast of Alien?), the many owners watching their canines frolic in the frozen wonderland, etc.

Snowy afternoon Hoboken perspective

“Was just out and about on the way to the post office today (which was closed early by the time I got there) and decided to shoot some images while I was tromping around. Taken around 3:00 this afternoon. Feel free to use them if you like. Love the website! – Jamie

Nice shots, Jamie – thanks! (FYI, I took a little creative privilege on one of your shots… hope you don’t mind!)

Hope everyone else stayed safe and warm today!

Don’t forget an obligatory shot of the Court Street wire tangle:

For the record I am disappointed in the quality of this storm. All the inconvenience but none of the beauty. Uglification commenced almost immediately.

Here’s an idea – an army of robot snow plows:

As long as they’re not hooked into Skynet, what could go wrong?

I think part of the problem with the uglification was that it was a predominantly daytime storm. The most beautiful scenes are usually in the morning after an overnight storm so most of it is untouched by humans or animals.

I haven’t been out a lot but every time I have been on the street I have seen salt/plow trucks. Also spotted the Housing Auth. crews and Supervisor trucks staying busy.

I just de-iced the G-Ride for a less labor-intensive take off tomorrow morning and tried to remove the snow moorings from around the tires.

I saw the ass clown maintenance man in my building manage to get his pickup truck stuck, then almost drive it through the back fence while trying to free it. Does that count?

If you see a Plow truck or a salt spreader take a picture for me. I haven’t seen a single truck of either type in my area, 3rd and Adams……WTF ?
