Snowblogging: Sick Day Edition

Ugh, I am sick today, snowblogging will be light as I sit at home and sniffle. I’m looking out the window, when it let’s up I may try a run to Walgreen’s (if they are open) for some medication:

Terrible news out of Cranston this morning as the Edgewood Yacht Club burns down. Video from WPRI:

3 alarm fire at Edgewood Yacht Club:

Better news, Mayor Taveras has been out all night with Public Works crews Twittering and Facebooking progress. I asked him about sidewalks last night via Twitter, this was his reply:

@gcpvd Very important to get sidewalks cleaned. Big issue is plowed and shoveled snow getting dumped on sidewalks. Team is on the lookout.less than a minute ago via web

Good answer!

As I sit home and sniffle and eat Ricolas, Ted Nesi is live blogging the hell out of this storm over at WPRI, check him out.

  • It’s always sad when a historic building is lost for whatever reason, but this one’s especially hard to swallow for me (and I think a lot of people). My parents got married there, and I spent time there as a kid. Very special place. Edgewood will not be the same at all without it.

  • a huge blow for marine people, and cranston and the bay and preservationists with the loss of the beloved edgewood yacht club. Good friends of mine were married there and I have always loved the building. 🙁
