Belated Boston Blizzard Report

So on Saturday night through Sunday morning it snowed. And snowed. And kept on snowing until Boston proper had roughly 30 inches of powdery snow that swept around in the wind to create drifts up to 4 feet.

Boston Public Schools (which, it turns out, bear little resemblance to their television depiction in Fox's show of the same name) are closed on Monday as well as Tuesday while the city digs out from a snowy shellacking.

The wind was blowing so hard overnight that the snow easily penetrated any cracks in apartment building entranceways.

For those of us who had no commitments on Sunday aside from watching the Pats smoke the Steelers in the AFC Championship game, it was good fun. The roommate and I walked across the street to our neighborhood park to perform trust falls into bottomless drifts of white stuff.
