Regularly scheduled service should resume by Monday, according to MBTA.com.
Looking to take the Green Line or the commuter rail into Boston? Well, you may want to keep shoveling out that car (or call a cab). As crews continue to dig out from the blizzard, MBTA service in Concord will remain suspended Sunday. In the city, starting at 2 p.m., limited subway and bus service will run on the Red, Orange and Blue lines between Orient Heights and Government Center, and the Green Line between Kenmore and Lechmere, according to MBTA.com/weather. Limited bus service will also operate on the 1, 23, 28, 39, and Silver Line Washington Street only. However, customers are encouraged to stay home and "use service sparingly," if possible, the website said. Commuter rail routes will remain suspended through Sunday. The MBTA weather…

When Gov. Patrick's travel ban expired at 4 p.m. Saturday, Patch did a little exploring in Concord.
The winter storm sometimes known as Nemo dumped about 2 feet of snow on Concord and the surrounding area from Friday through late Saturday morning. In anticipation of blizzard conditions, Gov. Deval Patrick on Friday issued a statewide travel ban, which was lifted at 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Following the ban's expiration, Patch took to the streets of Concord and shot a short video from the passenger's seat to give you an idea of what kind of conditions you'll be dealing with when you decide to head out.
The Saturday suspension of mail delivery debate applies to today, but not because of USPS budget problems!
You may be wondering if there'll be any new mail in your mailbox today (that is, if you can even make it to your mailbox, with all this snow). The answer, as you might have guessed, is No. Mail service in all of New England — not just Massachusetts — has been suspended, according to the Huffington Post. The ban extends throughout all six New England states. The unusual decision was made due to safety concerns, according to Postal Service spokeswoman Christine Dugas. The decision came after over two feet of snow falling throughout much of New England made many roads impassable, she said. Dugas reminded people to clear around their mailboxes or paths to their homes by Monday, when mail delivery will resume.

It just takes one stubborn snow bank to put you in pain for the rest of the winter. So while shoveling, remember to lift with your legs and not your back.
