I'm not home yet but from talking with family, my section of Marshfield lost power last night around 9pm, still not back. They are dealing with flooding in the esplanade area with the tidal surges.

No power loss here in Boston though just tons of snow.

It was great with no traffic out there, no fatalities, very few accidents & clean up is going smooth!

Just back from a walk in the neighborhood. It is beautiful out when the wind is not howling.. No official measurement yet, but guessing about 24-30 in Boston. Kids are sledding in the local park, people are out snow shoeing and cross country sking. We never lost power or anything.

DS12 ventured out a little while ago. We have 20+ inches probably. It's hard to tell because the wind is so bad. DS did measure a few places that were over 30 inches.

We never lost power, knock on wood, but we are stuck here for a bit. I can't even see the driveway for the drifts, I hope the plow guy can see it.

I am northwest of Boston. We got 2 feet of snow. Luckily we did not lose power. DH dug out an area for the dog this morning. The dog showed how much he appreciated it by sticking his entire face in the snowbank. DH is out starting the real cleanup now. It is pretty but it also a big mess to clean up.

South Shore here also. At least 2 feet of snow here, huge drifts and still snowing sporadically. Kids are outside playing.

We got 34" and drifts that are even higher. Crazy amount of snow. We are just trying to dig out our car. It was completely buried in the driveway. The town was plowing the roads at the beginning of the storm, but they stopped overnight. The side roads are impassable right now, not sure about the main streets. I can't imagine how they are going to get all the roads and school parking lots plowed in time for school on Monday. There is just no where to put all the snow!

In my town we got 28" from this storm. It was so hard to plow the snow from my driveway. Didn't know where my driveway ended and the street started. Fell down when the snowblower got stuck in the snow at the end of the driveway.
