Channel 7 reporter live at a salt pile

Reporting live from a salt pile in Weston.

Channels 7 and 25 began exclusive reporting from a MassDOT salt pile in Weston yesterday evening, more than 30 hours before the anticipated arrival of what Channel 25 tells us "won't be a winter wallop."

Exhausted evening reporters who reassured us the state had plenty of salt were replaced this morning by fresh reporters, who reassured us the salt pile had not disappeared overnight and was ready to be put to use in the first winter storm of the season. Read more.

Saturday update: Up to Blue.

Not yet ready to urge you to make a milk, eggs and bread run, especially given the temperatures we're seeing this weekend, but the National Weather Service is calling for its first "winter weather event" of the season on Tuesday and that did make us unlock the bunker and make sure everything's in working order. The NWS says any snow/sleet/falling sheets of ice could change to rain on the coastal plain (that's us, in the main), but we've got a wary eye open.

BU Today takes us inside New England's other weather station, the one atop the Great Blue Hill, which has been recording the weather longer than any other station, even the more famous one atop Mt. Washington:

The hilltop often gets some serious weather. In New England’s notorious Hurricane of 1938, the observatory recorded a wind gust of 186 miles per hour, the highest ever recorded in the United States. After another of last year’s blizzards, Fitzgerald spent more than 48 hours straight at the summit.
