Hurray! A “Monstrous, Damaging Storm Looms for the Northeast”!

What’s not to love?

While a snowstorm is currently underway across upstate New York and New England, the worst has yet to come for the Northeast. A monstrous storm is set to develop across the region on Thursday, unleashing damaging winds, coastal flooding and an all-out blizzard.

Unlike recent storms this winter, the dangers of the upcoming monster will not be confined to one part of the Northeast. The worst of the storm will rage from Thursday afternoon into Friday morning.

Strong winds will gust to or past 50 mph over a large portion of the Northeast, resulting in widespread tree damage and power outages.

Buildings and vehicles may also suffer damage, including from falling trees. In the hardest-hit areas, residents may remain without power for a week.

We’ve been lucky so far on the power front…but if there’s a lot of heavy, wet snow and 50+ mph winds, well, I reckon our luck may run out.

Good thing I stocked up on box wine!

I like this quote

My, my! Doesn’t this look bad? Quite frankly in my entire meteorological career, which spans back to the 1960’s, I have not seen too many winters that have produced so many major storms.

Locusts! Where are the damned locusts?

    We just got about 6 inches of snow last night – the belt on the snow blower is slipping… *sigh* Now it’s raining like mad and much is melty and yucky.

    Good thing I planned on making pot roast today – if we lose power, cold roast beef sandwiches always work. LOL.

    At this point either you will wind up eating Claude, or Claude will wind up eating you. Good luck. I understand snowdrifts work very well for chilling box wine.

    Y’all know me too well. I’m well-Vella-d at the moment.

    You’ve got me worried about Claude’s beady little eyes though…

    You *should* be ok on Saturday, Nina…unless things aren’t plowed.
