This is very true, especially in a storm as severe as this.
Lori Sullivan February 07, 2013 at 07:25 PM
Are you kidding me? Snow not starting until late morning/early afternoon and school's cancelled? That's ridiculous!
Chris Caesar February 07, 2013 at 07:29 PM
Lori I am speaking off the top of my head here but I believe the storm is supposed to begin Friday morning, and just continually pick up intensity as the day goes on. Return commutes are supposed to be awful tomorrow; folks are being advised to stay indoors after noon or so.
david mokal February 07, 2013 at 08:09 PM
So far Everett,Revere and Malden and more to follow. That was at Noone Today.
Dan February 07, 2013 at 10:25 PM
Ace Hardware on Commercial Street has plenty of ice melt/shovels in stock. 781-322-8463 for store hours and info. Shop local!

Dave I know the Noone family too
robert wilson February 08, 2013 at 12:38 AM
Just read on the Charlestown Patch that the T was suspending service tomorrow at 3:30 PM. Have you heard anything Chris?
jirkyrick February 08, 2013 at 01:32 AM
We are in trouble. The weather girl on tv was pointing at the map screaming " we're all going to die"
jirkyrick February 08, 2013 at 01:33 AM
It better be running in time for the Bruins hockey game Saturday at 1. Oh the humanity
Chris Caesar February 08, 2013 at 01:57 AM
That is correct, so to speak. The last train will be leaving Downtown Crossing - not Malden Center - at 3:30pm. Just keep that in mind.
Michael B Elvale February 08, 2013 at 02:00 AM
Please help out our firefighters and shovel your neighborhood fire hydrant. if they cant find them, they cant use them .
david mokal February 08, 2013 at 02:48 AM
Chris is that the last train to Clarkesville ?
Pete February 08, 2013 at 05:14 AM
Much ado about nothing... It is nice to have some snow in February.
robert wilson February 08, 2013 at 05:27 PM
Yes Pete it is, it will be in the forties next week.
robert wilson February 08, 2013 at 05:31 PM
Why do people wait in huge lines to gas up their cars when they aren't going to be able to go anywhere, just wondering.
robert wilson February 08, 2013 at 05:32 PM
I'm elderly, anyone want to VOLUNTEER to shovel for me?

jirkyrick February 08, 2013 at 09:57 PM
Yes I saw that, that's a civilized decision , otherwise we fans would not have had time to bury out and still get there early enough before game time to enjoy the local watering holes before the game.... Just saying, 50 plus years and still not sober yet... Eccchh. Acccchhh. (For those of you that fondly remember Bill The Cat) .
david mokal February 08, 2013 at 10:09 PM
Weatherman on TV said that we are all doomed. People on the coast are going to drown. People in Malden will be up to their necks in snow. Power grids are going to go boink. Then we are detting hit by a meteorite and we will all vaporize. OMG what are we to do?
jirkyrick February 08, 2013 at 11:01 PM
I don't know what I am going to die from in this storm , boredom waiting for the snow or a john Mayer song
jirkyrick February 09, 2013 at 01:15 AM
If I dig out a fire hydrant , does a fireman owe me a free beer
robert wilson February 09, 2013 at 01:18 AM
I'm hateing having to look at the foolish weather people outside telling us it's snowing, dopes.
AnnieOMalden February 09, 2013 at 02:22 AM
I'm a little cranky I had to miss my soap today. Everyone knows Friday is the best show of the week!
Anabette D'Entremont February 09, 2013 at 09:07 PM
i wish they would plow my street, so my uncle could get home...from work..would be nice for himto stay at home too..
Anabette D'Entremont February 09, 2013 at 09:09 PM
they havent plowed our streets since twelve last night, so its higher than car wheels...so his car cant get through
Eddie February 09, 2013 at 10:49 PM
Watched a contract plower bury a fire hydrant, right after I had shoveled it out, used my neighbors snow blower to clear my driveway, I know the DPW will come by and bury it in again
david mokal February 10, 2013 at 12:23 AM
The City drivers were fantastic but the contract guy sux. Why do they turn the plow in towards the parked vehicles? They only shovell it and throw back into street. Turn the plow on the non parking side and youll save alot of having to go over the street again. Every year the same crap. "Plow the Cars in" so whats the sence of parking one side? I wish there was enough city trucks where we could handle it ourselves.They do a great job.
alicia skane February 10, 2013 at 02:08 AM
Somerville.has.closed public.school monday already is malden closing.as well cuz of the removal
Chris Caesar February 10, 2013 at 07:21 PM
Yes, it's official now.
DannyBoy February 13, 2013 at 02:58 AM
It looks like this storm is costing Malden plenty of money for cleanup, and that this cost has far surpassed what the city had budgeted for snow removal (see Boston.com article link: http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/malden/2013/02/malden_storm_clean_up_estimate.html)
