@ehBeth,
Not sure - the Globe says in Quincy it was from the ocean? I think. There are problems downtown, too, near where RP works.

@jespah,
It was on our national news - then I saw pix from downtown. Looks crazy.

@ehBeth,
Seawater seems to have gone over the seawalls in a bunch of places (astronomical high tide). Firefighters rescued a guy in a stranded car at State Street and Atlantic Avenue downtown - because there was 2 1/2 feet of water. The guy's okay.

The storm surge is close to the levels from the Blizzard of '78.

@jespah,
The deep freeze is unevenly distributed. NASA Earth Observatory published this temperature anomaly map based on data from the MODIS instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite. (A temperature anomaly map shows how much warmer or colder temperatures are versus the average - in this case, land surface temperatures from 26 December 2017 to 2 January 2018 are compared to the 2001-2010 average for the same period. While it’s awfully cold in Canada, and the central and eastern USA, it’s warmer than normal in the southwest.

When you look beyond North America (yes! there's something!), it’s generally warmer worldwide, especially here in Europe.

@Tai Chi,
-41 is definitely complaint worthy.

@Sturgis,
-41C in Tai Chi land; 47 C in Sydney.
So I guess it all averages out.

Below is a gif with the total seasonal snowfall in the continental US for 2017–2018 so far, shown as a relief map, where total snowfall is expressed as elevation.

@farmerman,
When I see weather reports on the East Coast, I'm glad we live in the West Coast. Lived in Chicago for a few years, and somewhat enjoyed the seasonal changes, but the West Coast is still the best. We can go to the mountains or the ocean for a few hours of driving.

@farmerman,
Born and reared in Sacramento. My older brother is the only one living there now. Don't like the climate.
We live in Sunnyvale. Rarely have fog, and quakes that we can feel is very rare. Also, Sunnyvale was rated number 1 safest city in the US of A. https://livethevale.com/sunnyvale-1-safest-city-america-list-3rd-straight-year/
