Blizzard 2013

So the whole region was in quite the panic of the blizzard that came last night and today. The schools all closed, most people worked from home, the Governor of MA declared a fine if you were on the road for no good reason after 4 PM yesterday, and everyone was rushing to purchase stuff from the stores.

During the evening, I was sure that this wouldn't be that big of a deal; snow was barely even sticking to the ground, since it was just above freezing. We got maybe 2 inches before we called it a night around 11 PM.

Low and behold, we DID get a bunch of snow.
Kiwi and the deep snow, maybe 2 feet?

So far, it was a GREAT time to be holed up in the house. No electricity issues, no gas issues, no CO due to covered vent pipes. Oh, our neighbor stopped by at 10:30 PM to warn us of CO issues with the deep snow; no worries, we have the CO detectors.

Now for a day of sledding and playing inside!
