Snow Day

DAMN, did we get bombed!!!

Yesterday was a serious snow day. I woke up around 7am and the snow was coming down at an unbelievable pace. By that time we already had a foot of snow and it looked like white out conditions outside my window.

Then the snow continued All. Day. Long. And did not stop. We ended up with probably 17-18 inches in total, and some places in MA got up to 2 feet or more.

I gotta tell you, it was AWESOME. With no where to go, the weather furious, everybody was home bound for the day. I couldn't feel that pang of guilt you sometimes feel when I make a decision to close the store. This one was a no brainer. No one could move for most of the day. Wherever you were, you pretty much stayed put and had to wait it out.

Today begins the messy process of clean-up.

And my home town never looked more beautiful.

The majesty of Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me.

Ours wasn't nearly that bad, but I still took the day off work. :)

I LOVE snow days, and we've not gotten nearly enough this year!
(Damn, that was a horrible sentence.)
Anyway - enjoy!!

Gia keeps hoping for that 2-3 day snow event. One that dumps 3-4 feet of snow on us and shuts everything down for a week. She's a freak...

Better Boston than DC! We'd need a month to recover from what you guys got!!

I love the snow, so long as I don't have to drive in it or shovel it. Gotta love 11 and 13 year old boys (my neighbors), eager to make a few bucks by shoveling my drive and walkway!

Please stop bragging . . . it's unseemly. At this time of year, I'm already so homesick I can hardly stand it.

No, wait . . . spring is worse, with the warm sun giving new life to the green grass of Fenway, and the breeze carrying the scent of Italian sausage and peppers, from the vendors outside . . .

How much longer until pitchers and catchers report? :-)

P.S. --- Maven is right. Around here, a guy walking into an office with dandruff on his coat is enough to make people panic and call their daycare, to arrange late pick up.
