Snowy Progression

As you are probably aware from the postings of other Boston-area LJers, we had a bit of snow yesterday and overnight into today. We actually achieved OFFICIAL blizzard status late last night (defined as "3+ hours of sustained 35 mph winds and 1/4 mile visibility") which, as the Weather Channel people never ceased telling us, is the first time Boston has had a REAL blizzard since the infamous one of 1978. We did not, in fact, beat that snow total record. However, we did have a 76 mph gust at Logan Airport last night, and a category 1 hurricane is 74 mph (sustained, granted), so well-played, nature.

I took a bunch of "before", "during", and "after" pics. You can click through and see any of them larger.

Please note in the following set how I stuck my windshield wipers out.

What windshield wipers? What CAR? You can see the little rearview mirror just poking out.


Cats are snug during the blizzard, even though they want to be on the same chair, and can't figure out a better way to make that work:

Across the street. I want to point out that the only way you can tell that there's a car parked between the van in back and the red pickup truck is the windshield wipers sticking out:

Neighbors trying to dig out their entire driveway by hand. Mind you, the winds are still VERY strong. I then noticed that one of them (right) had, halfway through, gone and fetched a lawn chair, and just gave up.

I agree, neighbor. I'm not even going OUT there to clear off my car until tomorrow.
