NASA image of the gigantic snowstorm that hit New England and dumped about a foot of snow in my backyard. Winds got pretty blustery, but we still have power. The neighborhood is as quiet as it's ever been, the snow is still clean and white,  and the house is toasty warm as I write. Beautiful, non-threatening weather event. [NOTE: Image is from NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite; my house is somewhere under the red square (approximate].


October Snow

The view out the front window yesterday at about 1:00 PM. Halloween pumpkins are sitting - uncarved, in several inches of snow. This storm apparently set an October snowfall record for New York. Thousands of houses lost power. Earthquakes and hurricanes and snowstorms in October? Definitely something going on with the weather around here (see Hard to Deny). 


Still More Snow

Pretty much had to close the schools today. There's 18 inches of snow on the ground. All happened last night while we were sleeping. You go to bed with a little sleet and rain, and then you wake up and your car is just a cold, white bump. Time for the snow shovel - again (see More Snow and Postcard from The Bronx).



Snowed all last night with gusts of wind up to 50 mph. Rattled the windows.  By the time I made it outside to start digging out the car, there were about 18 - 20 inches of snow on the ground.  Sun came out, but the temperatures never made it over 25° F and nothing melted. Snowplows have blocked all the driveways and made white mountains on the street corners.  A real New England blizzard.
