we had no work which is freaking amazing- more amazing than the Bruins winning the Cup, but probably could not get cops to direct traffic and the ban...already been to dog park, gym for three great hours, shopping, and long walk in the woods with dog

will be there Tuesday def- called my boy about grabbing some tix for tomorrow if the time change screws him up with people who have tix, otherwise I'll see you on TV
If I can get there. I can't sleep and have been awake since 3 am because the wind outside is so loud.

I am surprised we haven't lost power.

Be safe everyone.

Nice kitty. My young one has been wide awake since 3 because of the wind noise.
The old guy just wants to sleep and not be pounced by the young one.

Be safe everyone!

Heard you can get 1 year in prison if you would go driving during this. isn't that a bit overkill? although im used to swedish system where you get 8months in jail for r@ping people which is ridiculous... but 1 year for driving outside now?o.O

lol. What the hell are you talking about? Have you been outside? There is 2 feet plus on the ground in and around Boston and it's still snowing.

As has been stated on tv etc please do not overdue it when shoveling. Take it slow and easy. We had a neighbor a few years back who was only in his early 40's die from a heart attack due to over exerting himself shoveling his driveway.

If you want a bit more of a challenge, you're welcome to come by my place. I have extra shovels.

But seriously, look at an NSTAR power outage map. Just a couple of towns south of Quincy is where the heavy whallop has been most felt. 90%+ of NSTAR customers without power in many South Shore, South Coast, and Cape Cod towns.

Melrose has 27 inches.

I don't think things will be back to normal until mid-week. This is going to take some serious time to clean up.

Wise words. BTW I just checked the hour-by-hour forecast on Weather Underground, and it doesn't call for temps to go above freezing till close to noon tomorrow. Today is expected to stay quite frigid throughout (high of 25F), so at least that buys us a good chunk of time to remove snow before it turns back-breakingly wet and heavy.

(BTW I wonder how many -if any- of the B's do their own shoveling?)

This is insane. I like the snow, so I enjoy shoveling lol. But I just went out and shoveled and didn't even make a dent. Still buried.

Our phone rang at 7 a.m. - our elderly neighbor had fallen down and couldn't get up. His son called us for help as he lives about 5 miles away and nothing has been plowed. We're about knee deep at least. My husband went over and just called - our neighbor is OK, just sore. Thank God as I can't see an ambulance getting here. And it's still snowing.

As long as they're not using snow blowers...

I think most of those guys live in town, actually, don't they? North End, Charlestown, etc.?

If I got paid half the entry level contract I would hire out the shoveling and yard work. So my guess is that they pay somebody-especially since they travel, and if the snow comes while on a road trip they won't be there to clear it.

Where I live in NH it is hard to tell exactly how much is out there given the drifting but I have at couple of feet on top of my trash and recycling bins and the snow is still falling hard (although not like it was around midnight).

Two feet of snow in the hotel parking lot. So much for making it easier to get to work. THank goodness for 4WD.

There's about 2 feet of snow in Brighton, it's above my knees in most places and I'm 6'5. It's impossible to walk in unless you're in the actual road.
