Winter Storm Nemo - when did they start naming those?
I'm in VT and it's sunny here. Where's Nemo????
Spud, best road sign event up here took place a couple years back. Someone broke into and reprogrammed one of those types of signs that was up for a construction zone. They reprogrammed it to tell motorists that they must turn back due to a zombie invasion. They did something so it took a couple days to fix it. And, my favorite part, the police said that if they caught the culprits they would bring a laundry list of charges that made sense . . . but, they included a possible charge of filing a false report!
How bad is the storm...Jim Cantore from weather.com is heading to Boston.
I miss a good New England snowstorm. Left there in 2000. Here it's just rain.
I have always felt that winter should be a novelty
least favorite season, but spring is almost here
There is a serious panic around here (Maine). It is like winter is a novelty and so is a big storm.
People are going stoopid and crapping their pants here on Long Island.
A balmy 27 degrees during today's ride. And pics are not showing....
May rival the 78 blizzard, which hut down Mass for days. We had 30" in 30 hrs in eastern VT, and that's east coast snow, not western dry fluff. Awesome!
I remember the '78 blizzard well. That was the winter after my head injury. I was living in Cambridge MA. XC skiis ruled. By that Friday (it snowed Monday and Tuesday) the major streets were 6-8 inches of hard packed snow. I spent Friday evening at Open Air Cycles, a casual hangout for the bike crowd after hours. Around 10:00 it was to=ime to go home and I figured on the same 2-3 mile walk that got me there. Jim, the resident mechanic, suggested I take the Raleigh DL-1, the vintage rod brake 3-speed, probably 50-60 years old. It was to be my first post-crash bike ride. To ensure all went well, Michael, another bike mechanic and skilled off road rider would accompany me on his 3-speed.
I got to ride home on the most stable ride you can imagine. The 28" wheels handled the 8" potholes in the snow to the pavement like they weren't even there. I put my foot down only to watch Michael struggle behind me.
Days later,I got to watch the National Guard dig out the major streets using enormous Cats with treads 12 feet high. They piled snow 30 feet high filling entire parking lots.
Just started snowing in our corner of VT. I'm looking forward to some good snowshoeing. The ski areas are pretty psyched as well.
Snow started about 6 here in ME. looking forward to nordic skiing once again. we are looking at bare ground in most places. Of course, the worst of this thing will in south, in Mass. And CB2 will get his share in CT.
Snow properly belongs in the mountains, it has no business being on road.
Heading off for 2-3 days of Whistler skiing this evening. Heehaw!
sometimes wisdom, other times this:
Enjoy your bounty out there in New England! We could use a day or two of "lowland snow" as we call it.
Expecting 24-30" in SE MA.
Went out for a ride this morning in RI. Home just as the flurries began. No milk or bread anywhere in the state.
Plenty of bee-yah (beer) in the house. Got about 3" at 3pm. Wind picking up and it is starting to get heavier. Just hope we don't lose power. Don't feel like firing up the generator.
