So we're a little obsessed with the powdery white stuff in Washington, right now. Record snow accumulation this season (55" at Reagan Airport, 75" at Dulles, almost 80" at BWI) has made D.C.-area denizens acutely aware of what the residents of Buffalo, Fargo, and other northern burgs endure over the long winter months. The challenge of mundane things like driving to the 7-11 to get milk, for instance.
The pace of snow removal has been, well, glacial in many parts of the D.C. region. But it's not entirely the fault of city crews, who rarely have to deal with more than a few inches a winter, let alone feet at a time.
At least District residents have a cool interactive map to follow the progress. We're pretty impressed by the mapping features: searching by address or intersection, and even the ability to watch an animation of progress over a period of time. (Not that it's much comfort if you're on one of the streets that hasn't been plowed.)
Check out the DC Snow Removal Map here. And if you live in the District, let us know if the map is an accurate representation of reality. We'd check it out ourselves, but we're still stuck across the river!
