welcome to Boston.
yes, those are buried cars (not mine).
I dug mine out, pikturs of that later.

holy mother of @%*#.
Does Meg have to walk to classes in that shite?
not today, and hopefully it'll be mostly dug out by tomorrow. (sidewalks at least.)
Brandeis cancelled classes today. I, lamely, have my fingers crossed for tomorrow as I'm feeling supremely oogy.
i'm doing the same.
i fear my car looks like the ones pictured above.
i'm at mike's. his door is at the bottom of a steep hill. and of course, the lovelies who own this house haven't shovelled anything.
Also worth noting that Ry went to work in that shite -- though at least the rest of his office did, too.
I had to go walk E's dog today, which was hellish, but there were so many people out with shovels, sleds, and crosscountry skis in the streets that it was almost worth it.
Also, deadened the "Yay Patriots!" problem for one night.
Somehow Ry and I's collective presence in this city seems to cause its sports teams to war with my former homes -- Boston-NYC in the baseball thing, and now Boston-Philly for football.

*aww*. Poor Ry. He should get a Snow Medal.
Ooh, ooh!! Did you ever want to learn how to make snow candy, because this would be the perfectest opportunity ever? Or do you already know how to make it? Seems I was talking to someone who'd never had it.
Ry tried to show me how in Philly, but it didn't work. With the maple syrup, you mean?

My grandmother always made it with light corn syrup, butter, water, and brown sugar. I guess you could make it with maple syrup. I don't have the recipe at work, but I could try to dig it up at home. You basically make a middling caramel out of the above ingredients and then take it outside real quick and make patterns in the snow which then become 3D. Yay!
To be honest, I've never gotten it to work as well as she did. Must be some grandmotherly magic.
my mom did it mad well, but she lost the recipe when we got old enough that it wasn't 'cool' anymore. now she can't find it once it's cool again. ^_^
you're welcome to come shovel it for me if you're that jealous... ;o)
walking home in the blizzard saturday night was way cool, I have to say.
If you pay for my round trip ticket, I'll shovel.
so glad (and also kinda sad) that we came up the weekend we did.
but still.... SNOW.
you missed a good time, lemme tell ya!
my arm's sore...
Today it's more like dizzy than dirty.
Still, better than the combination, which would yield ditzy girl.
no, snow. not wow.
I find it hard to believe that you made the same typo twice.

Sheeeeit. Come to the northland where its a balmy 40 degrees in mid summer.
Sadly, before my journey ends Im afraid that I will be farther north than you.
I believe the solution is a larger car.

oooh, you guys got enough snow too! (I've decided this is the first time in a few years I've been satisfied with the amount of snowfall!) :)
