Keep Walking

Boston is under seige again!

Oh, no -- nothing like that again! This time, we've been told since Sunday during just about every commercial break that we're expected to have a huge winter "Nor'easter" (a macro-scale storm whose winds come from the northeast, especially in the coastal areas of the Northeastern United States and Atlantic Canada. More specifically, it describes a low pressure area whose center of rotation is just off the coast and whose leading winds in the left forward quadrant rotate onto land from the northeast. The precipitation pattern is similar to other extratropical storms. They also can cause coastal flooding, coastal erosion and gale force winds) tomorrow, 14 Wednesday 2007.

Some reports are claiming there will be 28 inches (71cm) of snowfall!

Of course NOAA reports: "... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to midnight EST Wednesday night...

Total accumulation by Wednesday evening will range from 4 to 6 inches from Boston to northern Rhode Island and northeast Connecticut... except 8 to 10 inches from near Worcester through the Merrimack valley.

Snow is expected to begin across the region late this evening. The snow should quickly become heavy at times by daybreak Wednesday. This will have a significant impact on the Wednesday morning rush hour. In fact... snow may be falling at 1 to 2 inches per hour early Wednesday morning... limiting visibilities to a quarter mile at times."

In any case, it looks like Boston might be shut down for a little while tomorrow... What's there to do while we wait to be dug out???? Simple:

Play: Snow Storm!
