Ask any weather forecaster, there is a major storm on the way. 18-24 inches of snow, high winds with gusts up to 70 miles per hour and torrential rains once the storm switches gears.
Wide spread power outages are predicted.
6:30 am my alarm goes off. Is it snowing yet? Should I work from home or risk going into the office. I peek out the window. Nothing right now but there is a slight dusting. Must have snowed and stopped. I turn on the TV. Dire warnings. School closings. Stay off the roads!
8:30 am. The snow started up again. I’ve decided to work from home, not because it so bad now but because I’m afraid I won’t be able to get back home at the end of the day. It’s non-stop coverage of the storm… each prediction more dire than the last. Its like there is no other news in the world today. Even my bank has closed all of the branches!
9:30 am The very fine snow has really increased. No fat, fluffy flakes here. The wind has picked up significantly. The forecasters are saying that the rain/snow line has changed so southeastern New England may get more rain than snow. Its raining on Cape Cod now. The blizzard warning from Boston south has been dropped.
10:30 am. Not much change. Still snowing. First plows just went by to clear the roads
11:30 am The snow is really starting to accumulate and the wind is howling now.
1:45 pm Looks like the change over to rain/sleet has begun.
3:30 I think the worst is over. The wind has let up and it’s just rain now. Coming down hard but still just rain.
No where near the 18-24 inches predicted. Just another day in New England.
