Regardless of the snow total, the biggest problem here is tonight is going 
to be the sea.  More accurately, the sea and the full moon.  That's no 
different in Newfoundland than in Boston.

We are trying to decide if we should go fetch my Mother In Law while we can 
(despite most of a foot of snow in three hours), as her neighborhood will 
get cut off during tonight's coastal flooding.  Astronomical high tide + 3' 
storm surge = trouble.

Can some of you Aussies send us some of that sunshine?  You have too much 
already ... or think warm thoughts for us.  Its too cold here to even enjoy 
the storm surf.
