    Hmmm. Just got hit by a blast from the northeast and the house rattled.

    That's unusual.

    :?

    The house was stronger before the fire.

    The fire was contained to the oven! :x

    Two beers in... it's all good. ;)

    You won't remember any of this in the morning. :lol:

    Just did a quick shovel of the deck/back steps for the pooch... only about 2" of snow and heavy as a mother...bad feeling about power lines in this.

    About 5" down here in RI. It is very heavy. Power has gone off/on 10 times now.
    It's only a matter of time.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Listening to the police/fire radio. Water over the seawall making sections of Shore Drive impassable due to water, rocks and sand. Flooding reported a block inland from there.

    Hello, high tide. Please go away now.

    Oh, and the police chief just added that there are people congregating on the seawall to watch.

    You're kidding me? Winthrop? Was he smoking while refueling? Or plowing so much that the sparks from the road ignited the fuel tank?

    Of course!

    And yes, it was a truck that was plowing. Apparently the blade is on it, which must make it a bit challenging to tow it away.

    Oops, and another one just drove into a pole!

    Ohhhh, OUCH! :oops:

    Swear to God, Joe, it's the first time I've had it the radio on in years! And don't tell Mr. Unlost, because I always make him shut it off because it's so annoying.

    (Of course, when we were dating a century ago, I thought it was the coolest thing ever.) :lol:

    Logan Airport and the entire T are shut down today. Driving ban in effect until at least tonight, possibly tomorrow. I don't ever remember it being this bad before.

  • Curious to see what happens for the Bruins tonight. I have two balconys, but can probably get a nice seat in the loge if I can make it in there.

    I was wondering about that too. I don't have tix but with the T not operating and the driving ban in effect, I guess it's at everyones own risk. I wouldn't risk a $500 fine to go to a hockey game, personally, but with the shortened season, the B's can't afford to postpone any games.

    I'm expecting the travel ban to be lifted by then. I'll probably have to pony up for the North Station garage, but it might be worth it for tonight's game. If the travel ban is still in effect, and there's no T service, I can't see how they can play this game.

    I'll be curious to see if anyone actually gets a citation for driving during the travel ban. It's my opinion they just threw it out there to keep the idiots off the road, I can't see cops pulling people over & issuing citations right now. I could be wrong though, and am not interested in tempting it!
