    Looks like two feet out there, at least.

    Patrick declared a road emergency and banned all non-essential traffic yesterday night, with high fines and possible jail time for violators (which is, in practice, if you give the cops an attitude when they tell you to go home or to a motel now).  

    One thing about this governor, and why I voted for him again even though I wasn't crazy about some of his policies (casino gambling as a way to revive the state economy? Now, really ) : he takes natural disasters very seriously. Be extremely prepared, get things done, remain calm. After the 2007 snowstorm, when both he and Menino got blindsided by a foot and a half during rush hour, he must have said to himself "never again".

    •  Yeah it is the best plan for a storm this bad. (7+ / 0-)

      Just saw some pics of a NY highway with all kinds of stranded cars. They were moving some. Others abandoned which does not help at all.

      Re your sig, did you see the Star Trek episode when Lincoln appeared on a planet they visited and toured the Enterprise? Gives me a laugh and reminds me of Lincoln meeting Lt Uhura.

        ME-TV lately.  Although I've seen them all (in the original black and white) it's a treat to see them in proper order.  

        We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
