It sounds like he is URGING people to not use the roads, but not like the foolishness of 2013 with a ban. This sounds reasonable.

How's your part of Beantown this fine storm?

Can confirm. At Harvard Square now. Yes it's snowing. It is also Boston. It is also February. When did everyone get so soft?

You call the travel ban unreasonable but unfortunately, some employers will not shut down under any circumstances short of an official travel ban. So while you may have considered it unreasonable, some people count on those bans to stay safe.

They're saying the worst of it is now and in the next few hours. Here in Newton, I haven't ventured out but I see no one outside, and haven't seen any cars. The wind is definitely strong.

I went out to the bank and the supermarket this morning. It wasn't bad, then. Not many cars on the road.

I'm in Quincy and I wouldn't recommend walking or driving outside. It's hard to see too.
