Thunderblizzard!

It's snowing like crazy here, and now it's incredibly windy. A few minutes ago I saw a flash of light and heard a crack--a true thunderblizzard (the snow equivalent of a thunderstorm, if you've never encountered the term). Though the final accumulation in inches probably won't be anything like last year's 30-inch day, it's still pretty nasty out there.

This is just a guess, but I think that the school district is going to rethink its policy of staying open when every other surrounding town has closed its schools. I can think of more than a few parents who won't be happy that the buses are supposed to drive our kids home in this weather.

That's so funny - I KNEW I saw a flash of lightening about an hour or so ago. I was out with the kids in the snow before the wind really kicked up... I posted a quick photo of them. We've got about 12" - how did you guys make out in Lexington? My sitter didn't come in, otherwise I'd have been on base myself today. :)

Our kid's schoolbus (in Boston, which also had school) was an hour late - they had trouble getting the buses up to her school.
