Think About Your Blizzard-Bound Buddies

For those of our readers who live outside New England, please think of the rest of us over the weekend as we face a second major blizzard in two weeks (not to mention several more "lesser" storms in between). To say we are experiencing "cabin fever" in Greater Boston is a gross understatement. It's more like "10,000 square foot single family mansion with 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths fever". To date this season, Boston has received 79.5 inches of snow—that's the equivalent of one young Red Sox pitching prospect (Henry Owens 6'6"). We need just 28.2 more inches to top the all-time record set during the 1995-6 winter. We've used 70, 051 tons of salt to make our roads safe—and hardly any annoying environmentalists have made a peep. So, if you think about a New England friend this weekend, be sure to send them a supportive email or tweet—assuming they have electricity.
