End of Western Civilization in Boston: blizzard of 2013

Jump to last reply

Let's hope you weren't planning to arrive or leave this weekend.

It's been snowing lightly in Boston since about 10 AM with not a lot of accumulation, though they expect somewhere in the neighborhood of 24 inches and blizzard conditions.

Therefore:

Public transportation (subway, trolleys, buses and trains) will shut down at 3:30 PM

Private cars are banned after 4:00PM

Logan is technically open but the last outbound flight just took off 25 minutes ago. No arrivals are expected until late Saturday afternoon. The 4000 flights cancelled here will back up flying all over the country.

The big worry is losing power, but that is likely to come sometime between 8 PM and mid-day on Saturday.

Wish us well, we wish New Yorkers well (they are having it worse than we are at the moment), and remember when you obsess about the last detail of your trip, that nature may have another idea. I was supposed to leave for Virginia tomorrow morning. Now I hope to get off on Tuesday. Tant pis!
