Here's a shot from the parking lot of the store where I work at about 10 am this morning. It had just begun to snow.
It is now 11:13 and I just heard on the news that there are now 300,000 homes without power.
I left work at about 2 pm and the place was still hopping. Here's a picture of my car in the driveway at about 2:30.
|Several hours later.|
Here's a video made with a 5 mega pixel camera aimed a the television of some of the storm coverage Friday night.
Fast forward. At this moment it's about 5:15 on Saturday. All the shoveling is done. I didn't do it myself. I had help. My landlord has a snow blower but as we got closer to the street the snow was more compacted due to the constant plowing. That was the toughest part of the whole endeavour. I didn't time the whole thing but it must of taken 6 or 7 hours. Locally we got about 28 " of snow. A couple of inches more than Boston about 5 miles away.
|This was about 9 am this morning just outside my door.|
Here are the results of all our hard work.
|OK. We didn't shovel the street.|
People along the coastline south of Boston really got hit hard. The ocean was very angry. That's part of the price you pay for living across the street from the ocean.
So that about wraps things up from here. We don't always get the most snow, but due to the location, these wild scenarios happen from time to time. Last year we only got a few inches of snow all winter. I suppose this could happen again. Unlike the other states affected, our Governor ordered a ban on all driving and it was a wise decision. The ban is now lifted but I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
That's it. Over and out.
I'm outta here.
