|On March 5th and 6th, 2001, eastern Massachusetts got nailed with a
Noreaster. The storm was hyped up as the storm of the century.
Businesses, schools, and government offices were closed on Monday, in preparation
for the storm, but the storm didn't get the memo, stalling and not really
arriving until Monday evening. But when it did arrive, it arrived.
In Waltham we got about 12" on Monday night. It took 3 of us about 2 hours to clear out most of the snow, but it kept snowing throughout the day and overnight, so Wednesday morning I had another few inches to clear.
When it was all said and done, we probably got 18"-24". A lot of snow to say the least, but not the storm of the century, by any means.
|The view from our front door. There is so much snow on the hedges, they are almost crushed to the ground.|
|Mikes car is buried.|
|The trees in the back yard, heavy with the snow.|
|A view of the shed and the woods out our back door.|
|All the trees, heavy with the snow.|
|Snow piled on top of the flower pots on the rear deck.|
|The view from the garage. Cooch wonder how to proceed.|
|She figures the best way is to just do it!|
|This gives you a good idea of how much snow we got.|
|Snow, piled up on top of the garbage can.|
|My house, blanked in snow.|
|Mike, working on freeing his car.|
|Mike and Sus, busy at work. Compare this show to this one. Quite a difference, huh?|
|Cooch loves this stuff.|
