Boston snowstorms

January snowstorm, Back Bay, Boston, january 2005
Marlborough Street, Boston

News of the “Arctic surge” in the US North East reminded me of when I was living in Marlborough Street in Boston back in 2005. One morning in January I woke up to an eerie silence to find a real winter wonderland.  Two feet (yes, really!) of snow had submerged the cars on the street overnight. Unbowed, a few hardy Bostonians were snow-shoeing down the street to work.  I thought then “If this was London, no-one would be getting in to the office for a week!”  They have proper snow in Boston.
