How long?

How long does it take snow to melt and for the sidewalks and roads to go back to normal? If it takes any longer than a day, I think I’ll need to buy some boots. My old Rusty Lopez shoes barely survived today’s glacial treatment.

Man, between that, the blogging books, my plane ticket to San Francisco, and a new pencam, I’m going to go absolutely broke.

Update: For all you searchers who keep asking how long it takes for snow to melt, it depends on the weather. If it gets really warm, the snow can be all gone by the next day. If it stays cold but above freezing, it can take three days to a week. (This is in DC.)

    Snow in the Baltimore-Washington area lasts about three days longer than its last vestige of beauty.

    Or the day after you buy a pair of boots, after which it will not snow for two years.

    I have a very strong feeling that it will be the latter.

    Got any Good Will, Value Village or Sally Ann stores around you?

    Got myself a very slightly used pair of Sorels for $1.00 that way. Blog on!

    None of those, but there’s a Payless Shoe Source in Lexington Market. That’s gonna be it.
