slides: The Blizzard of ‘13 Hits Providence

Saturday, February 09, 2013

 

As Rhode Island buckled down for the arrival of The Blizzard of '13, GoLocal took to the streets of Providence to record its effects on the capital city. From the industral roads of Allens Avenue to the statuary of Roger Williams Park, here's a look at Providence under the siege of snow.

Eerier than WaterFire is a blizzard blowing snow across the Providence River. The lights of RISD's buildings are barely visible in the distance.

Providence River II

The snow shrouds a typically very busy landing on the Weybossett Neck side of the Providence River. Usually, this area teems with RISD students.

Allens Avenue

The raw industrial landscape of Allens Avenue is muted by the blowing snow, rendering even graffiti subdued.

Roger Williams Park IV

And while the Temple of Music is usually a serene, inspirational space on clearer days, tonight it becomes something closer to a nightmare's setting.
