BLIZZARD 2013: A recap
Day One: Activity in the city grinds to a halt as snow blankets the streets, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. A bus driver pulls into Central Square for the last route of the day at just after 4 p.m.. but workers shoveling snow and plow operators stay on through the night. Weather forecasters projected this storm would rival the Blizzard of 1978, the largest in half a century.
Day Two: Spirits are high as the dig out ensues after the storm drops 26 inches of snow. Students from MIT and Harvard play in their respective yards building igloos and snow forts or flipping into giant snowbanks. The streets are mostly pedestrian thoroughfares, save for snow plows and emergency vehicles and the occasional car.
