N England got dumped on. Snow!
As you may have read (in-this-hear-blag) there was no snow to speak of last year,
okay: two dumpings. Jan 21st and Halloween of 2011.
What is a good squirrel to do?
It's an Ocean of snow as I gaze across the mesa in front of me.
14"? 16"? Don't know for certain yet; but I can tell you now: It does not get much deeper than that.
Our local schools have closed down, well: It's Saturday as the first N Englanders awaken.
I understand that it wasnot a tropical storm so there's no official namers involved.
We'll have to settle for: Charlotte/Nemo for now. Nice storm.
I've got to hand it to the weathermen on this one: Exact details were satisfied by the
storm's 'behavior. It was like it was orchestrated. Hmmm. A storm conspiracy?
If you're thinking of strapping on skis in all of this: Consider local skiing
And by that: I mean. Mohawk, Thunder Ridge in lower CT. Or XC. It's all good.
Need some snow-vocabulary? Drift, deep, bullet-proof, frost, ice, melt, powder, champagne
The quality of the snow here was light and fine with a tendency to drift easily.
Fortunately, there was not much wind here in CT. Not good snowball-snow. Good for boothitching tho
Where I am now located in Greenwich, CT, things are pretty snowed-in and I wouldnot expect
any important papers from the people here until Monday. I understand that there's a travel-ban
in CT as designated by Gov. Dannel Malloy. ($1000 fine?)
Don't say I didnot warn you! Not sure if that's for cars or skateboards or bikes,
for that matter: But I donot have to be anywhere. Actually: I have to be here now.
I've read on the WWW that there are over 30,000 customers without power in Fairfield, CT.
"All wind and sails," you're saying. Perhaps. But maybe the Superbowl is a metaphor for
electricity in 2013. Dunno yet, as it's ownly February. Trailwrider: over and outhttp://m.csmonitor.com/USA/2013/0208/Blizzard-2013-Live-blog-Numbers-so-far-show-records-broken-across-the-region-video
