Snow returns to Boston

Yeah, we had and are having some snow in Boston, over two feet.

I recall in the ’60s when I was on the South Carolina swim team and it snowed in Columbia during practice. We had guys from Florida and even Australia who had never seen the stuff. They ran outside wet and in their tank suits just for a touch and look. Good they did; it was all gone within the hour. That’s not likely happen here and now.

By this morning, we were at two feet and both storm doors were doing their job. They required considerable oomph to force open enough to get out. stormedin

With the strong winds, much of the snow was horizontal overnight. Most of our windows were more ornamental than useful. snowvoc

The warm and cozy backyard cafe is not as inviting this morning. notteatime
