DC Snowstorm, March 2009

Some scenes from last week’s snowstorm, a parting shot from a DC winter that was almost completely snowless till its very final week. As I walked through the snow to work, I was especially torn up by the homeless man huddled in a corner of the Columbus Memorial, half-buried in drifts of snow. Hopefully the DC Hypothermia Van picked him up as it regularly does all the other homeless in the area in weather like this.

The pièce de résistance of my morning snow-walk was this 360+° panorama from the middle of the National Mall: Capitol to Washington Monument and back, with a few extra bonus degrees providing an extra Capitol at far right.

The 500px wide version is, of course, tiny since the photo is so wide, so you have to see the full size image to get the full scope.
