Snow in Boston

Hey, it's not supposed to stick!

Didn't the weatherpeople tell us the snow would be limited to extreme northern and western regions, like Maine? So like your furnace going on for the first time of the season, the French Toast Alert was a bit cranky today and late.

A storm right out of the Mutara Sector could be heading our way - or it could miss us entirely. But weatherpeople are concerned enough that we've raised shields the French Toast Alert Level to Yellow/Elevated.

The Boston Cyclists Union reports DCR hopes to hold a forum on a review of the department's ice-removal policies for bicycle paths, last updated in 2006.

A DCR spokesman noted the number of bicyclists on state-owned paths, such as along the Southwest Corridor, has increased since then and that the state recognizes "the commitment" of year-round bicyclists.

Area bicycling groups protested this week after... Read more

Terry Eliasen at WBZ notes that tomorrow's storm involves the dreaded bombogenesis. Wha?

It is basically a fancy term for what happens to a storm when it undergoes a rapid drop in pressure in a very short amount of time. Essentially it goes from a relatively weak, regular old storm, to a monster, nor’easter-type system. I am sure most of you have seen

As of 2:45, there were three 39 buses dead on South Huntington Avenue by the VA Hospital - two due to a bit of crashiness. Police asked the dispatcher on that route to stop sending buses down South Huntington.

And with nowhere for them to turn around, E Line trolleys that normally would head that way are instead terminating at Brigham Circle.
