5:43 am
right now, you can see the roads aren' t snow-covered. sidewalks, though -- my observation here in the last hour is that while we still don' t have any snow on the sidewalks, the flakes are taking longer to melt. so that' s kind of interesting. in the next hour or so, now that the intensity has picked up, we will start to accumulate that snow. don' t get lulled into a false sense of security. if you look out the door and the the roads will be fine, -- and see the roads will be fine, once the intensity starts to pick up, the ground has a chance to cool off, it will build up several inches of snow. the worst is yet to come, probably between 9:00 and new oon today. the mbta' s new $83 million resiliency plan aims to prevent all the problems you
