A parking ban in Boston is also in effect.
In a WBZ radio report, it was said many restaurants are shutting because the T is closing down, leaving restaurant workers with no way to get to work (not to mention keeping pedestrians off the roads as well).
Flour Bakeries, Temple Bar, Grafton Street and others have announced they’ll be closed from now through the evening. Many if not all places that have already closed or that will be closed tonight are hopeful to open tomorrow sometime, especially for dinner service.
Warning to all: even if it's your neighborhood joint, call ahead before you venture out to make sure it's open.
Otherwise, check your supplies: flashlight, batteries, candles, red wine, peanut butter, Ritz crackers and a full season of Mad Men. But, seriously, stay safe.
The blizzard warning will be in effect through Saturday at 1 PM, according to CBSlocal.com.
