We're all set for the blizzard — videos and snacks for tomorrow's Big Game, hatches battened, snow removal implements brought inside so we can bust out without digging with our hands — and so must everybody else on the eastern seaboard of the US, given the absolute mayhem in the mall parking lots (or, as S0 calls it, “store madness”) that we've witnessed today.

Currently, it's just a gentle snow and not much wind. I'll be blogging this storm as it develops, so that you have an alternative to the usual MSM1-distorted account of reality.

8:45 and the wind is really blowing here. I live next to a school and the wind is whistling between my apartment and the building. Pretty awesome. I might go outside in a bit.

11 O'Clock and All Is Well
I have to admit, when I saw that they were expect 20-30 ft. waves along some coastal areas, I said, “Man, I'd like to see that.” But, you know, not actually be there in case it was dangerous, as it very probably would be. Be careful !

There's a lot of drifting snow out there as I write this, but the wind looks pretty, or at least I caught it between gusts. I'm sure it will pick up, though !

20-30' waves????? jesus! this will be like the other major blizzards where revere and other areas are going to end up flooded. yikes!

the wind has definitely picked up. there's a tree next door that's getting bent pretty decent. hopefully it doesn't snap because my roommate's vehicle is parked next to it.

High tide's coming soon. We'll see what happens.

Our neighbor across the street has a spinning pinwheel at the end of their driveway, and it's still spinning, despite all the snow !

Hot-cha !
I'll add it to the gallery I just posted.

It was good. They must at least parboil it, then add rice vinegar, maybe some sesame oil, and a few hot peppers. Tasty !

Re: Hot-cha !
wild. those hot peppers look deadly!

i have to say the slight experience i have had with chinese take-away in your neck of the woods has been very confusing. what is with the white-bread dinner roll they give with an order of soup? are my experiences anomalies, or is this de rigeur?

Re: Hot-cha !
Wow, you must have been out in the sticks — Chinese restaurants used to do that when I was a kid, but in the Greater Boston area, this is an anomaly. However, this summer, we did go a place near Westford, MA that still did it !
