Fenway, Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week: February 20, 2013

They say more snow is coming this weekend.

I say, bring on Red Sox spring training!

Tomorrow the Red Sox face off against Northeastern University’s and Boston College’s baseball teams, albeit with their relievers, down in Fort Myers, Florida.

While teammates Williams, Pesky, Doerr, and DiMaggio back in Boston may be getting a bit more than a dusting – sources are calling for “plowable” snow – think about that mid-80’s-and-sunny weather going on in Florida and the lucky ones of Red Sox Nation who are getting an early preview of this year’s team.

Bet you’re wishing you stowed away with the gear on Truck Day, huh?

Whether it’s more snow or past photos from games at “The Cathedral of Boston,” share them with us on We Love Beantown’s Flickr – we’ll help you dig out from this storm if you do!

(I’ve got some serious shovel envy after missing Nemo.)

Get on up, it’s blizzard time!

Scenes like this gem from one of the many blizzards in 2010 will be recreated all over our city this weekend, I’m sure.

Nemo’s coming. No, not the cute clownfish, the giant snow storm allegedly set to dump almost two feet of, in my opinion, delightful powder on Boston.

And we want you to share your Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon and snowed-in photos on the We Love Beantown Flickr page!

Here’s a Boston snow photo shot list to get you started:

-Top of the plow piles (Bonus if you pull either a) a Titanic Rose and Jack pose or b) a Lion King Circle of Life pose)
-Picnic in the snow
-Lawn chair, stool, Caution tape, small child being used as parking spot saver
-Smallest possible walkway shoveled on sidewalk
-Sitting with an abominable snowmanesque Red Auerbach
Puppies. Duh.

What are we missing?

After a near two-year snow drought, we’re ready for it! Bring it, Nemo.

BOSandy: Hurricane Sandy Closes Down Parts Of Boston

Frankenstorm is hitting us. Is everyone okay? Everyone have water, canned food, flashlights and printed out articles from the We Love Beantown archives? Good.

As I’m sure everyone knows by now, Hurricane Sandy did in fact turn into the US and is currently turning directly into New Jersey. With the storm spanning over 900 miles and with the clashing cold weather front coming from the west, the Boston area is feeling the effects of Sandy.

All Boston Public Schools, government offices, even the Hubway have closed today in preparations of the storm to hit. The Bourne and Sagamore Bridges may close today due to winds. Governor Patrick and Mayor Menino have asked for residents to stay inside if possible during the storm. The worst of the winds should be hitting us beginning at noon today. That along with noontime high tides along the coast mean flooding is expected.

As mentioned, the bulk of the storm will be hitting the Mid Atlantic and will not hit Boston. And we hope everyone at We Love DC is safe and sound. Even with the storm hitting south of Boston, I see why the city wants us to be better safe than sorry. I’ve been saying for the last week that this storm won’t be that serious up here, and comparatively, I might be right. But everyone at We Love Beantown wants to make sure that everyone is safe. As a reminder, for any and all Boston related questions regarding the hurricane, please call the 24 hour hotline 617.635.4500. You can also call 211 or 877.211.MASS (6277) to contact Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.

I might have been a little off in my predictions from last week. Mea Culpa. Hopefully everyone stays safe, warm and with power.

UPDATE: At 10am, the MBTA announced all service will be suspended beginning at 2pm today. So if you went into work today, tell your boss to let you get out of the office before 2pm. Stay safe everyone!
