|Snow mound at MIT, dubbed "The Alps of MIT". It is 5-stories high.|
Today, they tried to start bus service and rail service again in a few places. Didn't go well. This one is totally stuck in Cambridge as the roads aren't wide enough anymore to turn. And note that the snow banks are as tall as the bus!
How desperate are we here in Boston? Well, if you are able bodied and willing to shovel the MBTA is paying $30/hour to anyone willing to dig out the tracks. They even emptied the jails for labor. Seriously, I am not joking.
|That is pretty nasty to look at down the rails. Never ends.|
We just poked a hole in our ceiling to reduce the risk of the whole thing coming down. We took out several gallons of water. So it is a good thing that they are stationing boats at every corner now.
|We started to bring in boats - if this all melts we will need the arks! (There is a boat show in town and they got them stuck in the snow causing horrible traffic - my neighbor got home at 9pm that night - 3 hours to go 10 miles).|
Did I mention that it will be snowing when I get up tomorrow morning?
