Cambridge residents take to Mass. Ave. after the winter storm of February 8, Nemo, left unplowed sidewalks and a statewide ban on driving in its wake.
Students making preparations to return to Cambridge after a week of extended relaxation and relatively warm weather found their plans thwarted this weekend by an unexpected snowstorm that struck the United States Midwest and Plains regions.
Businesses readjusted their hours of operation in response to inclement weather and the traffic ban in greater Boston. The timeline shows the hours businesses were closed over the weekend.
Teams of volunteers worked around the clock to keep Cambridge’s homeless population out of harsh weather conditions during a weekend when more than two feet of snow fell on the city of Boston.
John Harvard Snow
We may have to go back to school on Monday (while both Yale and Boston Public Schools get the day off—boo you, Harvard), but luckily this weekend allowed us two and a half days of fun in the snow before the inevitably unenjoyable Monday morning trudge. Flyby hereby invites you to take a few minutes to relive the good times of Blizzard Nemo in its pre-slush phase. Enjoy!
Harvard Square Snowed Out
Nearly two feet of snow coated Harvard’s campus this weekend as winter storm “Nemo” became Boston’s fifth-largest snowstorm on record, with 24.9 inches of snow measured in the city according to official reports.
