Looks like the northeast is getting slammed by all the blizzards that we got hit by here in the mid-Atlantic a year ago.

Can’t wait for the “live-shot” of people buying shovels at the local Home Depot tonight on the local news.

Doesn’t everybody who lives in New England own a shovel? Or do they toss them after each storm.

My grandkids may not be going back to school until next Tuesday. Snow day tomorrow and no doubt on Thursday and then they’re off Friday and Monday for MLK Day. The teachers have it tough.

>>The teachers have it tough.<<

The missed days will be *made up* in June or taken from other time. Law specifies a certain number of days each child must have in school. Individual towns/districts can vary and often do extend the number of days for staff & children set by the State.

2" is all that is needed to shut Boston down. Best bet to get around ...X-C skis.

Or am I wrong? :)

At one time I lived in Watertown, and I don't recall 2 inches of snow shutting anything down.

Having lived in Back Bay for 4 years. Trust me.... NO ONE is prepared. I think it is a requirement in Boston that you drive with bald tires.

I'm sure my kids will be back to school for Thursday. Out in the far-western 'burbs and here in NH snow removal is pretty efficient.

They'll still have a four day weekend as MLK holiday is followed by a school "professional day" on Tuesday.

What exactly a "professional day" entails at a small, private K-8 school, I haven't a clue. But I like to think in involves something mildly kinky. Like in that Kubrick film.

They go into the same bottomless pit that contains all the bazillion sheets of plywood bought in the south before every hurricane.

>>"professional day"<<

"professional day" is another name for professional development. Frequently states' mandate courses for teachers and you have to accrue credits for these courses to keep your certification current. Most towns require the district [b/c contract]to provide the courses to be given/taken during a normal school day. NOt sure about the private school model..often they mimic the PS.

Boston proper is terrible at handling snow removal, streets and sidewalks too narrow - no place to put the snow. Plus, too many cars parked on the streets. During really big storms, dump trucks will take snow and dump it in Boston Harbor.

Suburbs however are a different story. Excellent snow removal in general. In the suburb I live in, there are so many snowplows that I'm able to get in my car and safely go places within an hour after the last flakes fall.

“Doesn’t everybody who lives in New England own a shovel? Or do they toss them after each storm”

When I lived in Providence I left my snow shovel leaning against the back door while I went into the house to check the time. When I came back outside there were footprints in my driveway and my ONLY snow shovel was gone.I had to finish shovelling with an old garden shovel. And I lived in a good neighborhood.

Frankly, I was hoping for something more salacious.
