As the Blizzard of 2013 bears down on Boston, the photo above is a reminder of what the North End will look like by Saturday morning from the blizzard two years ago.
The Globe has an online photo gallery from the Valentine’s Day Blizzard of 1940.
Universal Hub has created a TV coverage drinking game to help from getting bored … i.e, every time a reporter sticks a ruler in the snow, take a drink. More here.
Here’s a link to the City’s snow emergency update.
What’s Happening In The North End / Waterfront:
Pretty much everything is cancelled due to the winter storm through Saturday. Someone asked me if the Haymarket vendors will be open. If you know, leave word in the comments section. I’m guessing they’ll be there for as long as humanly possible.
View the details on upcoming events and meetings in the Events Calendar.

Haymarket vendors were NOT there Friday afternoon.
If the vendors NEED to unload all that produce, the prices Saturday afternoon should be AWESOME
The MBTA seems to be closed today (Saturday
The Mayor is IN City Hall, but he would NOT be happy to see Haymarket vendor activity when there’s a travel ban for the streets.

Winter Storm Update –Saturday, February 9, 2013
What to expect when winter weather hits.
Due to the impacts of a severe winter storm, MBTA service will remain suspended on all modes Saturday, February 9, 2013.
With severe winds and heavy snow, the safety of customers and employees is the MBTA’s top priority.
The continued suspension of service will also allow MBTA and MBCR personnel to concentrate all of their efforts on getting the transit system, from subway to bus to commuter rail, up and running as soon as possible.
The MBTA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. We ask for the public’s patience and understanding as we combat the effects of this storm.
For updates on the restoration of service, check MBTA.com and media broadcasts regularly throughout the storm. To receive T-Alerts on your phone, please click here to sign up.
Full service details for each mode are as follows:
Service is suspended on the Red, Blue, Orange, Green, and Silver Lines through Saturday, February 9, 2013.
No cars allowed on the streets.
Logically, vendors could not MOVE their food to the selling area.
MBTA closed through all of Saturday.
We are suppose to have such a great economy where are
the plow trucks in the No. End?
The so-called Hidden Jewel of Boston, the North End
got slammed again and the only streets they are
concerned about are HANOVER ST. & COMMERCIAL
Once again, Hooray for the Restaurants and too Bad
for the Residents, and so much for the Hidden Jewel
This Neighborhood brings in far too much money for us
to ever be in this position.
