This weekend the blizzard “Nemo” hit the city of Boston, dropping a whopping 24.9 inches of snow. That’s the most snow we’ve seen in 10 years! This caused the closure of the MBTA, power outages, driving bans, and a pretty nasty case of cabin fever for most local residents.

The amount of snow on the ground caused people to get creative while traveling from one place to another. Many found it more convenient to cross-country ski all the way down Beacon Street. Others used the lids of their garbage pails as they slid down snowbanks the size of full-grown men.

Here at the Beacon Inn we’re staying positive by keeping ourselves updated on all the progress made in the area. Though many businesses are closed, we have been keeping track of all the restaurants still in service and we are happy to help accomodate you if you’re stuck in the city. Here you can watch the snow fall from your window while sipping our complimentary hot chocolate. So come on down!
