Here's what Fenway Park looks like buried in three feet of snow

Thursday February 12th, 2015

We're used to seeing the New England Patriots' home covered in snow, but not so much with the Red Sox. Still, as pitchers and catchers get set to report to spring training in Florida, Fenway Park is buried under more than three feet of snow.

Boston has gotten so much snow that the best way to measure it is by comparing it to the heights of the city's athletes. In a 17-day stretch starting last month, Boston broke its record for snowiest 30-day period by more than a foot.

The city's plows have already traveled a collective distance equivalent to going to the moon and more snow is on the way. 

Boston will be digging out after another storm on Saturday and Sunday but the Red Sox are getting out of town and heading to Fort Myers. 

Hopefully the thaw comes before Opening Day.
