Forecasters now say we are in for a Bomb Cyclone.

 

Rain, torrential, with over an inch an hour for much of today and tomorrow;

 

Wind, running 50-60 mph, with gusts to 75;

 

Rain turning to snow later in the storm, with up to a foot of heavy, wet snow;

 

Tides running up to 5' higher than normal, with coastal flooding;

 

Waves up to 30';

 

Time to batten down the hatches and run for a safe harbor.

Stay safe Sir. Our son and his family live in Lunenberg on a farm. They just finished a barn for some of their animals. Sounds like just in time.

I am sure that you have done most of this but a few ideas with those high of winds.  Bring in everything that isn't tied down.  75 mph winds are hurricane force.  If you have a garage door facing the wind, you might want to brace it on the inside.  Put duct tape along the bottom of the doors that you will not be using (helps stop splash water entry).  Will pray for you and your family.  Keep us updated as long as the power stays on.

We start sometime in mid March with a/c but no need to start the snowblower

 

If I should slip on any ice it is because the ice fell out of my margarita 

 

Two hours away is Flagstaff if I would want snow

 

I was born in Toledo Ohio been through the winters ,  I had to walk to school 

 

I really feel for the people that live in cold

I'm 15 minutes south of Hartford, CT, they are predicting Winds N at 25 to 35 mph. Chance of rain 100%. Rainfall near an inch. Winds could occasionally gust over 50 mph.

 

Hopefully I can take the dog at the shelter/rescue for a car ride or something else that will keep both of us of the rain later this afternoon.

Naw; I live here for the sarcastic abuse from snowbirds and retirees.  ;)

 

 I guess that there are pluses and minuses everywhere; right now, this area works pretty good for me; a storm or two add some excitement.

Things have quieted down, after two days of pounding rain and winds that sound like subway trains.  I'm staying 30 miles west of Boston and the coast, which turned out to be the right decision.  High tides are still running 15 feet above normal, and are expected to do so  for the next 2 or 3 tide cycles.  Large portions of downtown Boston and neighboring coastal areas are under water.  

 

Some photos of the flooding and related damages:

At the worst of it, 200K+ people without power.

 

As I type this, it has started to snow.  Doubt it will amount to much, but we are certainly on a weather merry-go-round.
