After the long walk home Wednesday, I had to take the bus in Thursday. (That's not entirely true, I guess - I could have walked again.) While the temps were well below freezing, it was a sunny day, and the plowed roads dried out comparatively fast. The unplowed side roads, like the one I live on, were still packed with snow. This was not true at the other end of my commute, at Vanderbilt, which has a lot of money and a snow-removal plan. You can see the difference in these photos; the first shows the streets in my neighborhood - not arterials. The second shows a plowed and melting Shelby Avenue.
