A snow day in South Boston

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. 

A statue of Admiral Farragut, half covered in snow, looks out over Pleasure Bay in South Boston.


  1. I like Otis and his one big drop of pretty color! Such a beautiful set of pictures.

  2. Oh wow, Great pics! I love snow! I'm sure it gets old but I don't get it much in Atlanta so I long for a big snowfall like that

  3. Looks like you had a good time out in Southie. Earlier today I was walking down the middle of Washington Street to get a cup of coffee. I was halfway there before I realized there was not a single car on the road and there were a score of other people who were also on the street.
