To all you Boston people, what's the weather??

So, later on this week, Ill be heading up to Boston for business, and lucky me, a huge snow storm had the same idea.

So what are they saying the total snow is going to be ? And when will the storm actually end ??

All they are saying now is 18 + , but Im guessing some of your local forcasters may have a better idea.

Larry

It snowed yesterday. I only got about 4 inches but I live right near the ocean.

The prediction is for 16-24 inches beginning Monday night through all day Tuesday.

Since this is our first snow they have the $$ to take care of it pretty fast. Or so I'm hoping!!!

But predictions change every 30 seconds here. I'll try to post again after the news is on.

All the weather forecasters get their information from the National Weather Service. Here's what they're saying for the next few days: http://www.weather.gov/box/#

Driving, but cross country skiing or snow mobiling may be a better option. If it was a month ago, Santa could have given me a lift :)

Do some checking before you leave....

Some of the drifts in my yard are over my head. Baseline I'm guessing I got around 30 inches since its above my knees.

It may be some time before this gets cleaned up!!!!

Thanks, I got word that there were some major road closures and such, so i decided to spend night 1 in Providence RI. Hooked myself up with Fleetwood Mac tickets, got myself some deep dish pizza, and called it a night. 95 was fine, but the inner city streets were very bad, good thing we got here before any type of rush hour. Heading out 5:30am tomorrow so I can get up to Boston, hopefully avoiding any major traffic. I guess we'll see
