Will holiday shopping get blown away?

Winter hit the Town of Homes hard again on Sunday, with snow, sleet, wind and rain. In contrast to last Thursday’s storm, however, the cleanup was an orderly affair, with most Belmont residents, it seems, content to stay off the road and let the snow plows do their job.

The high winds did play havoc with downtown holiday decorations in Belmont, with at least one string of holiday lights lying in a heap on the ground as a result of the high winds. But with the bad weather expected to last all day, and a Patriots game keeping most of us glued to the tube, this Sunday might be a write off for Belmont’s downtown shops — with only one shopping weekend left in the holiday shopping season — and that’s not good.

According to Boston.com, the next 24 hours will bring more rain and colder temperatures, meaning that any snow that isn’t shoveled up might be with you ’till March. 😉 Get moving!

If you’ve got pictures of the ‘Noreaster from your neighborhood, send them along to paul@bloggingbelmont.com and I’ll post them to B2!
