The past few days have felt very similar to when Hurricane Sandy visited Boston. Everyone in town was stocking up on bread, water, and cookies (or was that one just me?). Luckily, just like Sandy, Nemo didn’t wipe out our power or anything. We don’t have a car here, so digging out wasn’t a big issue either. And thank you MBTA for getting the public transit running so well today! I kind of tried to downplay the hype in my mind because being from Colorado, it feels like everyone freaks out a little more here. I can’t imagine schools being closed days in advance or driving bans put in place! Every channel we have was reporting on snow and only snow all day (we only have like 4 channels, but still). They were pretty darn accurate with the predictions though! We ventured out on Saturday after it finally stopped snowing to snap some pics and check out the aftermath. City snow storms sure are different from the suburban storms I’m used to. I can understand the freak-outs a little more now! No garages to hide your car in around here! It was so weird to walk around the quiet streets. It was also fun to be surrounded by other curious wanderers, families heading to sledding hills, and dedicated car owners already digging their spots out. It seems like most people made the best of it and had a nice time with friends and neighbors. Of course, today was a bit of a different story. Slush, sidewalk mazes, and rain…yes, rain! Such a ‘well at least it’s not raining’/dark cloud moment.
