It’s not so bad—yet

As bad as the January 4 snow cyclone bomb blizzard etc. was, this season still has nothing on the Boston area’s historic winter of 2015.

Remember that one? A record 108.6 inches of snow and brutally cold temperatures for weeks on end. We’re not there this time—at least not yet.

Below are photos from this month’s storm and then photos from February 2015, when that awful season was at its peak. Notice a difference?
