Our own Mass. Emergency Management Agency warns we might need to get out the clubs to defend our homes from golf-ball-sized hail tomorrow afternoon - well, rush to a secure place away from windows.

If you want to feel jitterier, there's always the ALL-CAPS rendition by the National Weather Service: Read more.

Snow at Oak Grove in February

We've had quite enough of this, thank you very much. Feb. photo by Rich.

Starting tonight, the T will be shutting down the Orange Line between Wellington and Oak Grove starting at 8:45 p.m. at night so workers can get the tracks ready for winter - except for Friday and Saturday nights, when service will run as usual.

You may recall that particular stretch of Orange Line proved particularly troublesome in the winter of our discontent. Workers will be installing heaters along the third rail and at switches to prevent the tracks from turning into a glacier again, in a $12.7 million project, MassDOT reports.

Firefighters spraying the South Boston snow pile with water
