10:57 am - The Blizzard of '13  
It's been snowing since about 8 am, about 2½ hours now. There's still not a lot of the ground yet. I can still see tufts of grass sticking up out of it in the lawn, so maybe an inch so far. Apparently we're due for some serious accumulation, but to quote the immortal Carl Spackler as he and the bishop made their way through the monsoon, "I don't think the heavy stuff will come down for a while." We'll see.

I've already been out for the mandatory storm purchases. Just the essentials—overpriced milk and sugar-free white chocolate macadamia cookies. Now I'm hunkering down with all the tv I'm behind on.

So, what did you wind up with? I heard RI closed all their roads due to the storm.

Re: Snow
They did. I got about a foot and a half, along with no power from Friday night til about noon today. It got cold, but I have a gas stove and hot water, so that helped some.

They got 30 inches where I teach, and the college is closed tomorrow. Not that it matters, because I don't teach until Tuesday anyway.
