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.

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.

On the other side of the city, the trees of Roger Williams Park are laden with snow.

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.
