    I’ve lived here my entire life BUT having to bundle little people up and drag them out in that kind of weather, and all the illness and yuck the cold brings to boot is just cringe worthy for me! Haha.

    My DH is self employed as well but he’s in the commercial construction field and has a great business here - so I can totally appreciate his hesitation. He’d be more likely to move south seasonally I think (and at this point I’d take what I could get!) Maine has beautiful summers and falls at least.

    I am over this winter too. Last storm we got 6 inches, this one we are also in the 14+ zone. I walk to/from the commuter rail for both work & home and I hate the sidewalks getting slippery again! Makes the commute so tough! And for me, work/home is Boston/North Shore. Spring cannot come soon enough for me!

    We're in Boston, so I'm expecting 12+ inches. We already have bread and milk, so I went out and got pizza and beer. All set now.

    I'm over winter at this point. If I were in the area getting smacked by these recurring N'oreasters I would be a very unhappy camper. Isn't it about time for March to behave like a lamb?

    12-15 inches predicted for us. Outside of Boston. I’m one of the few people excited for it as it is extending our ski season!

    Latest news has us (southeastern MA) at 15-20 inches, and the schools have, thankfully, already called off.

    I think it is interesting that our district blew through their snow days(only one was really necessary) and today, hardly any called off. It's supposed to worsen during the day so dismissal should be a BLAST.

    ...Good thing I have walkers. ;)

    Watching snow come down from my window right now. Last I saw we were on the line of 10-12 and 12-18 (depending which news weather map you look at). We are just outside of Boston - on the South Shore. So happy I can say we are going to Florida next month!

    Blizzard town here on old Cape Cod. Heavy. Wet. Snow. Power situation not promising, lights already blinking on and off. This thing has just started; the worst is yet to come. UGH. :crazy2:

    We are just about done with the 2 inches of icy snow. Now 30 to 40 winds, so cool. Was 34 while snowing, and will be in the low 20's overnight, so icy streets are us for the next couple of days.

    Stay safe and warm those North of us.

    Yeah, spring, will be here in a week, and a salt truck was seen this morning. Stores are trying so hard to have Spring stuff, but shovels, salt, and winter stuff is still on sale.

    I can't see out of my kitchen windows because the snow has blown into the screens. I'm having a kitchen white-out.

    Pretty much whiteout here. Every time I hear a particularly loud gust of wind, I tense up, waiting for the power to go out.
