20 photos: Walking downtown following Detroit’s historic snowfall

With more than 15 inches of snow on the ground, I laced up my boots for a walk downtown Monday morning.

The roads outside of my apartment in the Cass Corridor were unplowed, and sidewalks were unshoveled. That meant walking down snow-covered Woodward, which already was down to two lanes because of construction. Buy plavix 75mg
