Hey, remember last week's icemegeddon?

Andy reports from points west - and tries hard to contain his ire at Boston media:

... Driving through Ashby and Ashburnham today was like driving through a post-hurricane scene, only with snow. The tops of 60% of the trees are simply gone along Route 119. I'm a little disappointed that the Boston Globe dedicated only one headline to this crippling storm, despite the hundreds of thousands who lost power, most for days, the multiple deaths reported, and total devastation that has gone through this area (not to mention some jerks conning those without power by posing as utility employees). Watching the NECN or any of the network stations, you would think nothing is happening in this portion of the world since last Friday. ...

Has Andy, have you considered reading "Ashby.com" instead?

This simply isn't true. I watch NECN every morning, and they have had coverage of the situation in rural areas of MA every day.

Hey Jimbo, I live in Boston, which might be why Adam put this up here. I came out to support the folks who live out here and have been without power. This is not too strange to have out in UHub anyway; most people I know out here work in Boston or within the 128 Belt. We're not as far out as you might think.

And while NECN has been a lot better about this over the past few days (as I mentioned today), the Globe was silent all weekend, and what little we could see of NECN was near silent. It has been a lot better recently, but please do keep people who live out here in your minds. Remember that no power means no heat or water either.
