It's been snowing pretty much non-stop since Friday afternoon.
The Commonwealth Ave Mall is beautiful. The lights in the trees and the snow covering the statues and everything else.
Big snowstorm days are my favorite days in the city. All the non-residents are back snuggled up in their suburbs and all us city folk go about our business as if there were not a flake in the sky. Being steps away from everything you need is most adventageous in a snow storm. Now that I don't have to drive in the snow, I love the snow. I look forward to it.
We Bostonians put on our wellies, pull on our coats and hats and go out into the city.
The best part?
We don't have a driveway to shovel. We don't even have to shovel out our front steps. We go throw snowballs and get some shopping done on Newbury street, free from the hordes of tourists and day-trippers.
Everything is beautiful and white in Boston, and I haven't heard a horn honk all day.
