Northeast Weather March '18

Postby Bill Edmundson » Sat Mar 03, 2018 8:08 am

Hope all our builders came through the storm with little damage! Neel is due home from Florida today (3/3). I'll bet his thinking "Maybe, we should have stayed another day." Or, so.

Thanks Bill, it wasn't too bad. We had some branches down. There was some small power outages and some roads blocked by downed wires or trees, but nothing too difficult to deal with. Was kind of strange weather though. I had a dusting of snow and lots of rain. My mother ten miles away had over ten inches of snow.

Must have been a white knuckle approach and landing at Logan! We here in eastern CT did ok with lots of rain and tremendous wind. Dry shop, dry basement, all is well!

Second storm really packed a wallop! Hope everyone is doing okay. We got over 2 ft of snow. Unfortunately we're going to have to take down about big five trees. Somehow, the rest of my town is without power until who knows when, but my block never lost power. I think we're going to have a lot of guests for a few days.

Glad you're OK. In '93 we had a "dusting" of 21 inches. My power was only off 18 hours. Our streets were passable late the next day. I had 6 people stay at my house a couple of days. The funny part was my English Setter. He loved the snow! He would run, jump, and dive into the snow. He would go out of site then come up and dive in again like a dolphin.

Sorry about the trees.

Thanks Bill:

My dog loves the snow too. It is deeper than she is tall. She hops along like a rabbit and burrows in it looking for mice. Kind of said about the trees. Two are locusts that I hate so those are okay to go, but one is a dogwood we planted when Lisa's dad died in 1993 and one is a white pine that I got as a seedling at the 1973 National Scout Jamboree.
