LiveBlogging the Boston Snowstorm

Seemed like a thing worth doing.

At approximately 9:40 last night I got the BC-Alert that told us school had been canceled. As a result, I slept in this morning.

Waking up at about 10, I got a slew of emails necessairly canceling all the stuff that was supposed to happen at school today.

Snow began in earnest at around 10:40.

Posted below for your listening pleasure is the vaguely apocolyptic ‘Devil’s Work‘ off of Miike Snow’s excellent Happy To You from 2012.

Check back for updates as the day progresses!

12:00 PM – BC shuttle shut down. Guess I’m walking to school.

2:00 PM – Ooops. Watched the first disk of Community Season 3 (thanks for the Xmas gift, mom!)

2:02 PM – Ethan Struby suggests this is the official soundtrack of the storm.

2:45 PM – Left for school. Took some pictures along the way:

3:30 PM – Arrived at school; MBTA officially offline for the day.

4:00 PM – Road travel is apparently banned now.

7:12 PM – Just got in the door. Walk back was sooooooo much tougher. Colder from no sun, trudging through anywhere from 6-12 inches worth of snow, and just mad craaaaazy wind! Spooky being on my normal path with absolutely no cars anywhere. Near Cleavland Circle I saw some people milling around. Bars are packed, and everyone seems in good spirits. Lots of dudes in snowplow trucks keeping busy. So far though, not a bad blizzard.
