Anyone else get trapped in that mess that was the MBTA today? I left Boston before 3....and didn't get home until almost 6. Almost didn't get on the train is to SO crowded.

Yikes! We closed at 2 and I walked home to avoid the madness. I wish I had my cross-country skis, it's pretty great out there.

"On a night of snow" by sometime Bostonian Elizabeth Coatsworth:

Cat, if you go outdoors, you must walk in the snow.
You will come back with little white shoes on your feet,
little white shoes of snow that have heels of sleet.
Stay by the fire, my Cat. Lie still, do not go.
See how the flames are leaping and hissing low,
I will bring you a saucer of milk like a marguerite,
so white and so smooth, so spherical and so sweet —
stay with me, Cat. Outdoors the wild winds blow.

Outdoors the wild winds blow, Mistress, and dark is the night,
strange voices cry in the trees, intoning strange lore,
and more than cats move, lit by our eyes' green light,
on silent feet where the meadow grasses hang hoar —
Mistress, there are portents abroad of magic and might,
and things that are yet to be done. Open the door!

I left the house (in JP) at 115 to drive to Natick. I got back at 1130. There is nothing else to be said.
