Ok - to keep ourselves amused as the snow started and the next round of 'trapped inside' got underway - we started to list all the names used to describe our big storms. We were trying to figure out where our exaggerating storm coverage would go next... I mean, they already used "The Blizzard of 2105" and here we are in the second blizzard in one month.
|I guess they decided to call it 'Round 2'. Guess they are going all Hollywood. |
Actually the winds are a class 2 hurricane level.
Remembering a few of the ones used so far to describe our five huge storms:
- Winter Storm Juno
- Blizzard of 2015
- Blizzard of 2105 - Round 2
- Snow 'hurricane'
So we are going to have to coin some new ones because the way the weather man hedged about later this week - we know we are getting hit again soon:
And a Boston special: Wicked Blizzawd
Of course, those are only the clean names we are using around here. :-) You know it is past absurd when you see this on TV. In two hours, the rest of the 2-way streets in Boston will instantaneously change to one-way streets until April. Don't come drive here - some of the intersections have taken one hour to get through all last week and I have no idea what confusion this change will unleash! Is Google Maps taking notice?
Why? Well apparently we are not satisfied with Mother Nature dumping it on us - we have to farm it now (ha ha). Ever heard of a Snow Farm? Actually the report is that the National Guard has been here all week removing snow. And now NY, PA and other states sent in crews. We just got back from a day skiing and we saw soooo many front loaders and bobcats on the highway being trucked in from other states. It was crazy.
