We ended up with more accumulation than originally forecasted. I think our "official" total was 17 inches.
The deck. You can't even really tell it's a deck.
The fence along the backyard is completely covered over in some spots.
Here's what it should look like:
What's left of the pool. The "above ground" pool.
Normally, as a residential street, we are last on the to-be-plowed list. For some reason, or maybe it was the guy who works for the town who lives/lived (that's up for debate) down the street, this plow came early in the storm and then many times right after the snow ended.
Which was great except that I wanted to walk up the street to take some pictures. I waited until he had plowed and then safely, or so I thought, headed up the street. Well, he was up there, around the bend, clearing a neighbor's driveway and the neighbor gave me with my camera the side eye as if I was going to photograph and report the plow for clearing the end of a driveway. Then the plow headed back down the street towards me. I had to run and jump into someone's partially cleared driveway for safety.
It was technically still a blizzard when we were out there due to the wind. I had to crop that photo so you could see her face. Yup, that's a blizzard.
I have some more photos of missing fences but I'm too tired to edit, etc. I spent almost four hours today commuting. Over an hour and a half this morning and more than two hours tonight. The MBTA is saying that it's going to take 30 days to get systems back to normal, and normal around here includes delays. I'm tired.
