    Full disclosure. I kinda drafted off the heat of an esteemed board member, who has been calling it Blizzghazi, which I like, too. Also saw #snOMG2016 which is....ok.

    The hearings will begin at the Crystal City Restaurant around noon today, Vombatus. That's right up your alley.

    Straight snow is one thing, but if the high winds (20-30 mph) come then losing power is on the table. That really sucks.

    I have a 5000 watt generatror, and I went out and bought two more large space heaters just in case.

    The 17 degree temperature on Sunday night means this snow is probably going to stay on the ground for a while.

    Always loved the snowmen cartoons. Two of my favorites is one is where he has a snowman bowling a strike with a bowling alley with another snowman's head, while the headless one's is standing behind him, hands in the air are trying to find it his missing head. The other one shows a snowman laying dead, with an ice cream scoop in his back, and Calvin explains to Hobbes that it's a sordid story.

    Personally, I think this storm should be called Snowgate.

    Every forecast says Boston will get only grazed by the storm, a couple of inches tops. And everyone here has so much PTSD from last winter, no one believes it.

    Seems like it's going to be a run-of-the-mill Nor'easter around here.

    My bigger challenge is that my boiler crapped out last week and I'm trying to get the new one installed before the worst of the storm. It's a two-day job (I'm also upgrading the water heater while they're at it) and the crew got here around 7:15 this morning, so it's a bit of a race against the clock.

    It's not a cheap job, either.
