@Region Philbis,
Is that the pub train, or pub tram, RP?

Either way, all is good.

For me -

It was a day to explain, three times over the phone, how bad the storm was. It was a day to listen to one professorial lecture that kept cutting out (technical issues). It was a day to write an essay and three blog posts. It was a day to deal with a client's two panicky emails. It was a day to have a podcaster meeting and hash out next week's show. It was a day to shovel for an hour. It was a day to do about 50 pages of class readings. It was a day to prepare a Powerpoint slide presentation for a video I'll be recording tomorrow, for class.

It was apparently also a day to piss off a cousin who decided that the two emails I sent were not enough and I had to talk to her on the phone for I don't know what the **** for because she has evidently decided that I have nothing else going on in my life.


There there jespah

@roger,
at least my rant got me something - i had a coffee and egg and toast made for me this morning -- husband is finally getting the driveway plowed out via our snowblower and kids are finally writing their thank you cards for distant relatives

And I still have crap work to do.

3 tries on the presentation today. Yes, three. Another blog post to write. More reading. Same amount of shoveling. Work meeting in 2 hours. I'd rather be napping.

Snowfall amounts were very variable around here. Boston got a bit over 24", Haverhill got about 27" and Nashua NH got about 33". New Hampshire is pretty much cleaned up now and recovered. By tomorrow it'll be forgotten. Then on Friday we get another storm.

Ow.

Again.

Got to the end of the driveway (well, almost there) but not the turnaround part (we have a driveway that can hold some five or six cars, no exaggeration).

Neighbor's cinnamon-colored standard poodle ran over (gallumphing in the snow) and gave me kisses. Sustained me for another 15 minutes of shubblin'.

Is there likely to be widespread Spring flooding when all this snow melts?


We're expecting another snow storm here Friday evening and Saturday. We will be lucky if it totals an inch of snow.

If they run out of places to put snow, tell 'em to load up the tankers and ship it out southwest.

As a general rule, that's seldom much of a problem in New England. The geography of the region is such as to provide plenty of room for runoff into the Atlantic Ocean and the plentiful lakes and rivers.

And, btw, there is no such a season as 'Spring' in northern New England, at least. There's something the locals call 'Mud Season.' Then, suddenly, it's full-blown Summer.

@Butrflynet,
Possibly; depends how fast the melt is.

Snow is returning in a few hours here.

Maine's main distinction from the rest of NE is Fly Season, which occurs between Mud Season and summer...

@Lustig Andrei,
Am I reading this right? Another round for Boston-metro area? I see that MA, Western CT, RI and Boston-Metro are going to get 8-12 inches more starting Monday morning continuing 'til Tuesday midday?

Where the hell will they put it? I know ... in the Hah-bah..with the tea?

The weather man described our coming forecast as "a mess". First snow, then mixing with sleet and freezing rain, coating everything with ice, then possibly a little more snow.

But, I'm glad I'm not in Chicago.

It's still a-comin' down.

I'm taking a rest day, as it seems futile. RP, though, is out there.

PS Tomorrow, the Boston schools are closed. And it's supposed to be the Duck Boat tour for the Patriots' victory parade.

Huh?
