With the parking and driving bans in place, the main thoroughfares were empty - no vehicles except for emergency.  In both directions on Dudley Street, only pedestrians and a few bicyclists were out taking advantage of the improvement in weather. 

On the main streets, heavy front end loaders were clearing the snow while a few businesses wanted everyone to know they were open:  CVS, Brothers Market and the liquor store.

On what are ordinarily plain brick and stone surfaces, the heavy snow had settled onto the surfaces and provided a temporary aesthetic makeover for most of the buildings and homes.  Often the best snow paintings were on the sides of the buildings, fully accessible to the wind.

Thanks to Joel Jean-Pierre who contributed photos during the height of the storm close to the Strand Theatre.
