Hope to get some pics today, but the storm was heavy with the snow, but minimal wind and the temperature really never dropped below freezing so the sleet/rain did not freeze up as bad. Of course all the schools closed.
The state here is now crying that they are out of salt. Really, from what I have seen very little was being used otherwise the roads would not have been as slick as they were this winter with 2" of snow.
Yes oh Yes a Nor'Easter. Gotta have at least one a season, and here it is. Hopefully there will not be another one this year. So this type of storm is bad due to several factors. Generally moderate to high snowfall, High Wind, and oh yes this one has the Ice...
Living in Buffalo I was used to large snow falls and high winds, but Ct. just adds ice. So this storm has the potential to knock out power and internet. We shall see how well the power companies trimmed the trees.
Another storm here in the Northeast. This is a classic NE winter from when I was growing up. Schools were cancelled, Business's adjusting and plow trucks on the loose. While CT is not Buffalo when it comes snow removal, this winter the CT folk have learned fast. However the plows are like toy trucks compared to those in Buffalo. Also much of the dangerous conditions in CT could be solved with dropping salt or a sand mix. That just has not happened.
With my Prius hill challenged when it snows I dream of ol' Red on days like these.
