Hello Juno

2015 Blizzard Juno

Juno might have slighted the New York area but it hit us hard in Boston.

We ended up with 24.6 inches, making it the 6th biggest storm in Boston’s recorded history. It actually dumped 36″ in Framingham, about 20 miles away from where we live. It was all awesome and annoying at the same time.

It shut down the city, including the MBTA, on Tuesday as there were blizzard conditions throughout most of the day. So we were all home on Tuesday as the snow swirled all around.

As the snow eased up in the afternoon we all went out to check out the snow.

Autumn hated her snow suit but she loved being outside so the moment we went outside she stopped screaming bloody murder. And started again the moment we crossed the threshold again. Our babe just loves to be outside at all times.

Her long beautiful eye lashes caught falling snow flakes.

Poor Price spent over 8 hours between Tuesday, Wednesday morning and night outside with the snow-blower cleaning up the driveway, walkway, and stairs. The piles are taller than me in some areas.

And while Price busted his butt out there for hours and hours we stayed cozy inside making cookies. I really do think that I have perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe at this point. yay!

She stole my pen. He stole her blanket and chair.

Price took these pictures of our street on Tuesday night once the wind lessened and rate of snow coming down slowed down. More people felt brave enough to come out of their houses to start digging out.

The Blizzard That Wasn’t

Lots of snow. A blizzard of snow. School closed all around Boston (about 18 hours ahead of time). Plows were at the ready. People stayed home from work. Drivers took public transportation so they would not get stuck later in the horrible conditions.

the only problem…


 Boston ended up with about an inch of snow. Seriously.

The Cape got more but the point for me is where I live… no snow!!!!!

I think I need to change proffessions. If we make a mistake there are seriously things to account for and fix. But a weather(wo)man can be off about a 1′ of snow and no sweat, things changed. Their warns can close the publis school system ( I wish I had that power) and if they are wrong they just say “Oh the snow storm got to big it started to get warm. So, no snow.”
