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.
You know where bostonians priorities are....sports over education every day!
Well they did have to cave and have the parade on Wed. A snow plow friend said that Boston is a mess -- no where to put the snow!
So the snow is so much after this storm yesterday. We got our driveway plowed in so high -- the plows also knocked our mailbox off its post yesterday. I had to just put in onto of the pile of snow.
And now this morning -- I see they buried our mailbox -- I don't even know where it is .... damn plows!
Our front yard looks like twin beds with white sheets.
Pile next to car before we started shoveling. This pile is taller than RP now:
Our front porch:
Pile at the bottom of the front porch steps before
we started shoveling today:
Another 45 minutes of shoveling today. I'm sure by the time RP comes home, it won't be possible to tell that I did anything.
Since January 1, 2015, I have been running a calorie differential* every single day. The smallest calorie differentials were 225 and 227; both of these were rest days. Otherwise, my calorie differential has been over 700 every single day since January 25th (before that, it was in the 300s). What was the date of the Juno snow storm? January 26th. Last week's average differential was 876. This week's is 531 (one of the rest days was this week, plus they count Friday and Saturday even though I obviously haven't eaten or exercised yet on those days).
*Calorie differential is calories from food eaten minus basal metabolic rate (what I burn just by breathing and otherwise existing) minus calories burned through exercise. A positive caloric differential means I burned more than I took in.
I read somewhere that you've had about an average year's worth of snow already.
Tomorrow I'm organising the neighbours to make up some food parcels for you.
Weather.com tells us that we are due for a "3-4 day long snow event".
Event? Snow event?
An event is the Super Bowl or a carnival or alumni reunion.
This is a freakin' snow storm!
Event, my ass.
I'm recalling BP's well in the Gulf of Mexico. They had everyone calling it a "Leak". Leak my ass. That was a blowout.
70 degrees in Charlottesville.
Y'all in NE: it looks like a couple of rough days ahead. Please take it easy. You probably don't really need to go anywhere or do much of anything.
Thanks. It's 16 here. I was out for 45 minutes of shoveling and couldn't feel my fingers when I stopped. Still coming down and this is the lighter end of it. 4" or so, so far. Way more to come.
Got my exercise "Pumping Snow".
Hans und Franz would be proud.
I'll prob'ly take a vacation day tomorrow and continue to play outside.
Apparently we won the snow lottery.
Our little corner of the 'Chusetts is due for the highest accumulation.
Same here. Everything I am writing now - everything, no exception - people (or aliens) are fighting frostbite.
well last year I was in the highest for MA - so I will gladly give this over to you and George.
Although being in second place isn't a picnic either. I am working from home - subway is now running shuttle buses so taking public transport isn't very viable. Neither is taking 4 hours to try to drive to work. I have a computer, printer, scanner, etc. so I can work just as well as being in the office.
