DC: Some Cars Are Still Buried

Calvert Street NW in Washington DC near the Duke Ellington Bridge (yes, there is a car in there).

Same car from the back.

This wiper thing seems so wrong!

Lazy government employees...

Apparently the 300,000 “nonessential” government employees that were told to stay home for an entire week, were in fact, not essential at all.

They got to rest up all weekend in order to enjoy their Monday off as it’s a scheduled holiday for government workers.

Is there a box on the 1040 to mark/check that taxes are “nonessential”?

Just unburied our Lexus, one block off of M street, in Georgetown, tonight. The snow was *over* the hood.

Then, of course, the question becomes: Once you move the car, where in the hell will you park when you get *back*, as my now beautifully clear parking spot will be a gigantic wonderful parking spot for some non-resident bar-goer who will leave at 2:30 am.

Seriously, an Audi w/ quattro seems like a wonderful investment right about now, especially as we'll be in boston next year. :)

My next door neighbors car looks just like the first photo. More show coming tonight.

In a bit of defense of the folk, it is illegal to put the snow back on the street where it was plowed. Further it is illegal to put it on the sidewalk. Its not clear if it is legal to put snow on someone elses lawn. So unless you have a pickup, where do you put the snow? I am thinking in particular of picture 2 where the plows surrounded the car.
Also of course there is a another question, given how long these cars have already sat will they start?

Lol, that is how my second car looks out front right now. Since I am unemployed, one car un-buried is just fine at the moment.

I have noted something interesting during these storms here - all the private parking lots and streets were clear of snow long before the public roads. It was funny driving along the extremely lumpy and unplowed public road and seeing all the side roads to apartment complexes and business parks clean down to the pavement.

I have a car on the edge of our farmyard that is buried just about as bad. It's an old 1993 beater with 200K on the odometer.

It's a spare set of wheels when one of the others is in the shop. Some nice warm day in Minnesota, I'll dig it out.

Most of our vehicles are so old our mechanic has a parking spot just for us.

They're so old, he has us on a payroll deduction plan.

Up here if you're in the city and don't move your car when the authorities demand for snow removal, it gets towed to the impound lot where to get it back you have to pay an exorbitant fee for the tow, pay an equally exorbitant fee for every day in sits in impound and you get to meet all sorts of surly and angry people in the process of bailiung it out.
