100,000 without power; National Guard called up
Gov. Patrick, looking like he just got off a plow, just informed us that the heavy, wet snow is snapping power lines all over the place. He said he declared a state of emergency and that, as a precautionary measure, activated 250 Guard members just in case they're needed to help get people to shelters.
Meanwhile, Amtrak is six feet under; no clue when service will be restored.
