Boston Buried in White


A note from a friend in Boston who I was trying to have dinner with last night or tonight or tomorrow night or…..He’s still stuck on the East Coast. Alas, this is the first time I’m experiencing the hellish New England snowstorms from afar.

Jay writes, “I’m still in Boston. There was a huge coastal blizzard yesterday. Logan shut down by mid-afternoon. By the time it finally stopped snowing around 10 this morning, Boston has over a foot of snow on the ground; the South Shore and the Cape got closer to 18 inches.

The storm has now passed, and the skies are clear and sunny with almost no wind, but Logan has only just started partially functioning.”

AH – how well I remember those days…..back and forth in a cold dark taxi cab or waiting at the airport lounge for hours, knowing that we would never take off.

And there’s more, “There are no planes, no crews, no gates, only one runway, and a huge backlog of travelers. When I talked to American last night, they had canceled all outbound flights scheduled for today, and I imagine Tuesday will be spent taking care of the backlog of people who should have left yesterday. I have already lost two days of my trip but……”

According to AP, the storm also knocked out power throughout New England, mostly in eastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, which affected more than 22,000 people.

I don’t miss those memories. Or these.
