Blizzard of 2005

Brookline Ave

I just came in from shov­el­ing the dri­ve­way of our next door neigh­bor, where he kind­ly let me park the 9–3… more than two feet of snow, bliz­zard con­di­tions, and very cold temperatures—reminds me of the Buf­fa­lo bliz­zards of my youth…

Every­thing is closed, and I’m wait­ing to hear if I have to go in to work tomor­row morn­ing… in the mean­time, i put some pho­tos on “Flickr”:.


First Snow in Boston

First Snow”, by presley

Is it just me, or is it not sup­posed to snow like this before Thanksgiving?

UPDATE: I’ve been fid­dling around with Flickr’s Blog func­tion­al­i­ty, try­ing to find a good tem­plate that works. This one was inspired by Matt Haughey’s solu­tion, which uses some inline styling to crop the photo.

I like this solu­tion not only because it is visu­al­ly attrac­tive, but also because it loads the image in the back­ground, hope­ful­ly reduc­ing the ini­tial page load time. Of course, I don’t have a dial-up con­nec­tion to test this, but the­o­ret­i­cal­ly, it makes sense.

Now, if only they would add cat­e­go­ry sup­port for their Blog widget…

First (real) Snow

Hastings Square, Cambridge

We in the northeast are getting our first snow storm of the year.

After ven­tur­ing down to Quin­cy tonight, it was nice to find out that my Saab is actu­al­ly quite good in the snow. We were back in Cam­bridge in one piece before the snow real­ly start­ed pil­ing up.

It’ll be a nice week­end to curl up with a bot­tle of wine, a good book, & some­one you love.

UPDATE: Snow­ste­ria! (requires Quicktime)
