Feeble Knees

I can't remember the last time we actually had a real, honest-to-goodness blizzard.

We've been known to get two feet or more of snow from one storm, but we haven't had too many classic Nor'easters where the winds are at hurricane force (> 60mph) and the visiblilty is a quarter of a mile or less. Well, it looks like this storm could be one for the record books, judging by the current forecast for Boston. They're saying 20-30 inches, probably two feet at a minimum with snowfall rates of up to 3 inches an hour.

It seems we had a lot more storms like these when I was younger. I don't know how my parents managed to keep five kids in one small house without going bonkers. There were a lot of board game marathons - lots of Monopoly, Boggle, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit. Ah, those were the days.

Mr. F, the kitties and I are hunkering down for a nice time of rest, and perhaps a game or two Scrabble. Hopefully the storm will wind up sometime tomorrow afternoon so we can dig out before nightfall...
