As expected, my company (along with scores of others and most schools in the Boston area) are closed today due to the storm. We woke up around 4:00 am and looked outside and while it was snowing, it didn't look too bad out there. But as the morning wore on (and yes, we went back to bed), the intensity has really picked up. It's really blowing out there, and the snow is of the wet, heavy variety. We bundled up around 8:00 am, grabbed our travel mugs filled with a mixture of strong coffee and hot chocolate, and headed out for a walk with Otis. Here are some scenes from our morning adventure:
South Boston is notorious for narrow streets with parking on both sides that quickly become difficult to navigate during a big snowstorm.
