First they were predicting 1-1.5 ft of snow. Then 2 ft. Then 3 ft. Now they are predicting 35+ inches up to 40 inches. The govenor has declared a state of emergency in effect at 4 p.m. The Executive Order given is that all vehicles are to be off the road except emergency vehicles and needed personnel. Such as nurses, doctors, etc. And you must show Identification and Authorization. People have taken heed of the order and the roads are empty. A $500 fine and/or one year in jail.
Logan Airport is EMPTY. All flights have been cancelled until after the storm ends on Saturday. No flights are being allowed to land.
I went down to check my mail. I ran into a management maintenance man and asked him how was he going to get home. He is staying on the property to give help to anyone who may need it and to make sure access remains for any emeregency vehicles. (Snowblowing the driveway around the clock) For that I am grateful. It is a constant worry should I have a heart attack. And not just me. We have a few residents in the 90's. One is very frail and sick.
The wind has shifted and is coming in from the North. Everything is blowing sidways. My big winidow is on the north side of the building, and this is the first time I have ever heard it rattle. It is two stories high. I am not going in that room at all. Too scary. That is one BIG, BIG plate glass window. I am wondering if maybe I should get dressed and stay dressed just in case that window gets blown in. I don't usually get rattled by storms, but this one seems different. I have never heard of 35+ inches of snow being predicted before. And we have had more than one blizzard in my lifetime.
Oh, one more thing. Welcome home Andy!
