Good 25.8 here in metro west Boston. Resisting temptation to go out there with the snowblower and wake entire family....

We have over 2 feet here. My deck has 3+. but I can clearly see more than 2 feet on my truck. I'm going to wait a bit for it to slow down before I snowblow. It's still coming down as hard as when I went to bed.

over 2' here on LI.
Actually got the D1 stuck for the first time in 12+ years...lol
Well it took me 1o minutes to get out, so not officially stuck
The snow is so thick that it balls up like crazy when they plowed last night.

Be careful out there if you must go out.

Okay, upon reassessment i now see that we're going to be without power for at least 2-3 days. I'm on a peninsula and the road loops around at the end, both ways are completely impassable with HUGE trees down across road taking out lots of wires. I'll take pics later.
Water was spilling over the concrete bulkhead in a bay that is pretty sheltered.
Officials say we can expect snow to continue through this evening.

Even if I had the D right now, I really would not be able to make it more than 300 yards in either direction.

That was quite the storm!
I was actually in Boston(Charles Street) near the Common last Thurs-Sunday!
My daughter was ice skating at the Frog Pond last Sat night.
What a difference a week makes!

I was living in the South End during the April '97 storm---->>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fool%27s_Day_Blizzard.

Drove the Wrangler all over town; no governor ordered traffic bans then.

Gov. Deval Patrick makes Obama look like a Republican!
But that's a different matter altogether. He's bad news

So with regard to the storm, the town did cut up one of the downed trees on our road, but did so hastily, leaving the bulk of the weight suspended by power lines! Simply brilliant.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I played a little with my truck outside after cleaning the snow off of it. I guess Brooklyn didn't get the blunt of the storm. I hope everyone was safe. Nice photos Josh and others.

Our police chief used a borrowed snowmobile during the storm. Mattracks anyone?

I was out at many points during the storm. Got 15-18 at my house snowblowed 3 times throughout the storm to avoid issues, town and state were hammering through with the plows and it never accumulated too much. Driving to Boston right now and right through Hartford on 84 for about 15 miles its still got about 2" of packed snow on every lane, which is horrible for me in my 2WD ranger, common sense and momentum got me through.
