Stupid name for a storm. Does any one know why they started naming the storms? Perhaps to help build the hype?
Either way we saw a lot of snow. A lot more than I've seen in the Boston area for at least a few years. The cities' subways and busses were shut down, a driving ban went into effect, and there are still a good amount of people without power.
It was a storm that shut everything down and I have to say; the day after was pretty nice outside. After I dug out a little I took a walk in the neighborhood. There was great energy. So many people were out and about either digging out their cars or just taking a walk and enjoying themselves.. There were barely any cars on the road and it was really cool to walk around Davis Square taking it all in.
