remember these are FREAKING BRUINS FANS.....this is borderline cult, they will like zombies find away to get there (if I had tickets I'd hop in the back of a train box car if I had to headed to Boston)

Well my 2 feet of snow in my driveway just got plowed but Boston still has a driving ban and the T is closed so it will be difficult to get there

I live and would be driving in from NH. My driveway is plowed and the sun is out.

Boston has an issue as to where to put all of the snow.

It's the whole state with the driving ban for non-essential personnel.

Where are you that things are so clear?

If the game isn't till 7 that should be ample time to get the roads clear.

As long as the travel ban is lifted by mid-afternoon they're going to play, might even play with that in effect too.

Well we made it. No loss of power thank God. Just finished shoveling paths from the apartments to the end of the driveway- snow is up to my waist in some spots [I'm 5'5"] Just now a payloader is making its way up the street, must be too deep for even the town trucks to plow.

Not quite as bad as the Blizzard of '78 but close enough.

LOL.

I'm guessing Princeton wasn't an area of concern for State Police and National Guard.

This storm wasn't overly bad, pretty much what was expected. I think ~2ft has been the average for this storm. Snow is nice and fluffy which makes it easy to move.

Storm was crazy! Didn't lose power thank god. I shoveled for an hour and couldnt go any further. My brother just digger his car out now. We have 3 more cars to go

Neighbor came by a snowblowed a bit. Other neighbor has a bigger one didn' offer to help anyone. Even the new lady on the street from Kanas who asked if he could help her and she would pay. Flat put said no, and continued to work on his yard. Guy has always been a POS.

So much snow on the ground . I love it but wow...I didn't expect to get this much.

Travel ban is lifted as of 4pm: http://www.mass.gov/alert/alertlanding.html

I'm still not going into work. My corporate stooge of a boss has been trying to argue that I'm "essential personnel" since yesterday at noon.

I'm not (essential or even critical). Even then private retail such as hardware (my gig), gas, food markets (not restaurants) are under the "critical personnel" in order to provide "operations" of the facility. It's a teir down from hospital, police and other such positions. Either way I'm critical nor essential to the place, it's management that is . I even called the governor's office and the state police. My particular job at the store is not critical to its operation. I can't open the store, unlock the doors, activate registers, ring a purchase up, handle cash, turn off alarms, I don't have a single key (key-carrier as it's referred to).

I asked the staties if I slide my truck into a snow bank and gave them my position at the store as the reason, they'd arrest me.

Yet the first statement out of either corporate shill was "you're essential". One even went to the extent of saying he heard Governor Patrick say it. Which is a flat out lie, he never once mentioned anything about private retail being "essential". In fact the only mention of anything of that ilk was from the head of MEMA and his caveat was that if you were needed to "open the store".

I understand these guys are under immense pressure and probably have all their eggs in one basket (retirement, career, mortgage), but I consider risking my life, limb, wallet and freedom through disingenuous coercion,very serious.

When I worked at the VA I was essential, I worked in the kitchen, patients need to eat. But during snow emergencies the clerks, HR, even some of housekeeping didn't come in, nor did they have to. Hell the dieticians didn't even come in, no need for any radical changes in a single day. Never mind a travel ban which is even more restrictive.

end rant....../

Sorry had to get that off my chest.

Until tonight when the temp drops to 0.

Then it becomes cement.

Glad I filled up all my 5 gallon cans of gasoline. **** shovels.

I ended up with 36 inches of snow here in Milton. 5-6 foot drifts too. Thankfully our power never went out.

3 and a half hours and 2 cars later I'm done shoveling.

My buddy is going thru the same thing right now down in Plymouth with his work, and I've been there many times working in a retail enviornment. They are all idiots.

Hope all of you guys stay safe! I know how frustrating snow storms can be and how tiring shoveling a **** load of snow can be! Stay safe guys! Hope your cities also help clean up all the snow as quickly as possible!

Wish you all the best of luck through snow-maggedon!
