Just got off the phone with Daughter #1. She lives in a suburb a/b 15 min west of downtown Boston. She said they still have power, even though her neighborhood tends to go dark if someone hiccups. shocked

Can't get out the front door because the snow has drifted above the upper storm door pane, and she can see a mound in the driveway that she's pretty sure is her car! eek

She works at Home Depot and told me that the idiot store manager decided to stay open 'til 9 last night! Hullooooo... Gov. Patrick ordered all cars off the roads by mid-day yesterday. Did this yutz think customers would be walking to the store during the storm to schlepp snow blowers or rock salt or generators home on their f'n backs? Bonehead! mad
