The wind is roaring through in those long, sustained, surface-level freight train blows like only a Nor'easter can do. Looking down from the second story onto sweet drift patterns constantly re-forming around the stone walls, trees and parked cars. The angel my 75 year old neighbor lay down and made on her last cigarette outing flew away.
im laying here and it sounds like snow balls are being thrown at my windows. interested to see what morning brings although sounds like it will be snowing through afternoon. -- Usenet Block Accounts | Unlimited Accounts
Yeah, it's hard to tell how much snow is on the ground when it's blowing this much. The drift between the two cars in front of my house is almost windshield-height. But there's only about 2 inches on parts of my front porch. I'm guessing we've got at least a foot.
Boston.com says Mass. has got 345,000 without power right now. The NSTAR outage map looks like the Cape is bearing the brunt of it - you guys must be really getting socked with the wind! -- My music blog
Here in Milford NH looks like we have about 18" hard to tell with all the drifting. Luckily it is very cold 15F so the snow is very light. Never lost power, only a couple of hundred power outages here in NH. Much worse in Boston area.
We still have a few more hours of snowfall so too soon to go out and try to shovel. Plus the wind will just blow it all back.
I don't really feel like going out and measuring, but I feel like I've seen bigger snowfalls than this in Cambridge (I've lived here for a couple of 20+ inch storms). It's hard to tell from my front porch, though! -- My music blog
Still snowing. But light flurries that won't add anything more to the 26 inches dumped in us. I got my walkway shoveled out. I didn't touch the car though. I can't go anywhere anyway until the drive is plowed.
thats a lawn mower to right? Do you find it can be a bit under powered if you get to much heavy, wet snow? The height (at least how it looks in the video) of the opening looks some what short...how tall is it really? -- Usenet Block Accounts | Unlimited Accounts
This is the part of the storm aftermath where I get to sit inside and listen to the incessant wheel-spinning of the people who think they can get their dinky little non-four-wheel-drive cars out in spite of the fact that our street is almost completely impassable. So far this afternoon three different cars have gotten stuck on the street (which means that plows and sand trucks can't get through either). And that's just the ones I've seen from the livingroom window. -- My music blog
So were cops in my town, having a police scanner for events like this pay for itself 10 times over. The dispatcher was asking the cops if they could get to certain parts of my town which was a no except for the center of town, if you wanted to rob a bank all you would need is a snowmobile lol.
