Deeper Than That Today

Good choice of photos for today, but that's nothing compared with what we are having today. Even the above ground sections of Metro rail shut down this afternoon because the snow was above the third rail. The trolleys in the photo were powered from a "plow" that contacted a hot rail in a slot under the street between the rails. They had problems in snow and ice, too.

Heck, that's nothin

You shoulda been here for the blizzard of '09!
