During the storm

Eventually, we got only 7 inches (~18cm) of snow, but our northeast neighbors were harder hit. Below, to give more "flavor" of the storm, phone shots of Boston via my sister, who walked to work in the storm, amid a no-transportation ban and 25 inches of snow. My hat's off to her, a doctor on a hospital shift, and all who brave storms to keep us safe!

I saw many similar pictures from the tv and Bostonian friends. Thank goodness for people like your sister who puts themselves in harms way to help others.

Bravo, or rather brava.

I must be nuts but I'd love to walk in a snowstorm.

Your top shot, Lulu, it simply beautiful. The light on the leaves - outstanding. Well done to your Sis on two counts - she can take a nice photos and she is dedicated. Well done!

Dramatic pictures, fantastic stuff! All three are wonderful, but I particularly like the middle one. Would make a great Christmas card!

Beautiful shots, Lulu! I wouldn't want to be there, but they are beautiful!

I still don't understand the transportation ban. A better approach would be: if you drive in this blizzard and get stranded we're not coming to get you. Glad your sister made it to work safe and sound -- what a trouper!

Peter said...

Incredible, thanks for getting out there.

Your sister truly is amazing to have walked to work in THAT!

Thanks so much for the thoughtful comments, especially re: my sister's trek:)

@Gracie and Aimee - I wish I could send all this snow your way!

Randy said...

I love the middle shot. I can't believe the cars are so covered.

Jack said...

Your sister is one of the unsung heroes. She is lucky to live close enough to walk, and her patients are even luckier!

Cloudia said...

wow bless your heroic sis!

Andy said...

Your sister is dedicated to her profession and patients.

I've seen snowfalls like that. It's a lot of work walking through them!
