Nov.8th
Our Nor'easter continues hold its grip on us.After snow and blowing snow last evening and during the night,it has changed to rain now.I ended up with a couple of inches,but there are many areas around us that had 6-8 inches of heavy wet snow.
Currently raining,with temps around 35,but the wind is blowing 15 to 30 with some higher gusts,wind chills in the 20's.Should all wind down this evening.A couple of fairly cool days and nights Friday and Saturday,before a big warmup into the 60's Sunday and Monday.Then a cold front comes through late Tuesday to get us back to normal.


Election is done with,continous political ads done with,political backstabbing done with,now we get back to government infighting and nothing ever gets done.different day,same story.
Anyway we have more important things to worry about,like a strong nor'easter heading our way with strong winds,some heavy rain,and inland snow and ice.Should be moving north as the day progresses.


Nov.6th
Happy election day!!!
Beautiful,but cold weather today.Stopped to vote before going to work and already long lines.Good news that we will get a good turnout.
The effects of our nor'easter seem to be lessening as models move the storm farther east,Cape Cod and the islands may get the worst of the winds.Also the farther east brings colder temps down,so we all may get a period of snow when the precip starts.As much as 1-2 inches.We'll see.


So we start a new week,but as with last week,we have the potential another major storm.This one won't be anything like Sandy,thankfully,but it will be a major nor'easter with very strong winds and coastal erosion,and heavy rains.
People in the northeast have to be prepared for more power outages and possible flooding conditions.Along the coast winds could be as high as 50-60 wind gusts.Even inland we could see 40-50 mph wind gusts.Those poor people along the NJ and NY coasts could see more flooding as the shoreland has been changed completely and any kind of storm surge and high waves will be an issue.
This is going to be a slow mover once it gets up here.starting along Wednesday early along the mid-atlantic and southern new england coast over spreading the whole northeast wednesday afternoon and night.Strongest winds will be Wednesday and wednesday night.
Those of us who are storm weary should get a break starting late Friday into next week.

Hi NEw and Mass, NEw!!! No wayyyyy. Say it isn't so. No way. I won't believe it is true! Ha ha on collecting interest for last winter.

Mass, glad you didn't have much snow and you are ok.

NEw, I read over at Mass's that you are finishing up the floor and hanging curtains. Sounds so nice! Happy for you to finish the renovation. Have a great weekend. TGI -Thursday! LOL

P.S. I called into work because I have a tree guy who finally decided to show up. More limbs over the house need to come down on those big oaks and I won't let hubby and friend do it. They are wayyyy up there.
So, watching these guys do their work and holding my breath. May be around later.

GM,Mass,just dropped in on your blog.I'm not going to get too concerned about models showing two weeks from now,with this current storm,they were still struggling with the track yesterday.
We made out ok with this storm,just kind of a wakeup call what lies ahead.I said it last spring after our non-winter,mother nature will collect her dues,it certainly has started this year off like she plans to collect interest on our warm winter last year.

Quoting NEwxguy:
So last night on Dr. Masters main blog he threw in this update from GFS model.It made me sit up and take notice.

Latest 06Z GFS shows an unsettling possibility for Nov 22 - 23: a tropical cyclone heading towards New England, a blocking ridge in place over Greenland, and a strong negatively tilted trough over the Eastern U.S., which would have the potential to pull the tropical cyclone to the NW and merge with a big extratropical cyclone over New England. Granted, 2-week GFS forecasts are very low reliability, but I don't like seeing another Sandy-type situation predicted by the GFS.

Jeff Masters

As he points out this is a 2 week away model run,so you can't start preparing at this point,but it sure does make you wonder.


Good Morning, NEw!

HAVE MERCY! I'm beginning to wonder why Mother Nature has decided to pick on our New England region this year! Hopefully, this potentially nasty event, reposted above from below, doesn't come to fruition. There's been enough real challenges to deal with lately without adding more to the mix.

Thankfully, as of this am, we only had less than an inch of snow covering the ground. Grateful, too, that there were no power outages involved around here, as it's far colder than last week and we're without a working generator. We've begun to work out contingency plans with those relatives (who may still have heat) in case of such an instance.

Currently, it's begun to turn a bit slushy due to some earlier returning rainfall resulting in a meltdown. Hopefully, by early afternoon, I won't have any difficulties while driving to an appointment that was rescheduled from Oct 29th's(Hurricane Sandy). I believe our nearby highways should be clear enough to safely make the trek to and from. I've become skiddish about driving even in better weather. My nerves are taking over.

So sad how the Jersey and NY shorelines have been pummeled once again. Hopefully, the mass media stays on top of this story for needed attention to additional relief efforts. It's going to take quite awhile to recover from such decimation.

Hope your area also made out okay from this storm and that the potentially ominous two-weeks ahead forecast (p/Dr. Masters, etc.) will change for the better and give us more encouraging news for a most thankful Thanksgiving and beyond!

Starting around 6 P.M. EST or so, the main page and Senate pages will switch to blank maps that will be updated throughout the evening as election results come in. But be aware that very early reports can be confusing. If Austin happens to report first, Texas might be dark blue for a little while. If problems in New York City due to the storm delay reporting until after upstate districts report, New York might be dark red for a while. But it will be interesting to see the colors spread out from east to west as the results come in. Come back tonight.

That answer to your question is no,the truth is no matter who we vote in,our politicians are unable to get the job done.And none of them care about the middle income blue collar worker.

The nastiness has been sickening, and embarrassing! With more money then ever spent on the Presidency. Maybe one day the person with the most money will win, without us voting,LOL!

When it is all said and done, does our lives change that much with whom ever is President????

I was on Pros blog this morning and she was talking about the incessant ads and nastiness of the campaigning,and I completely agree,I am so happy it is coming to an end.Elections are not a proud moment for me anymore,simply by the way they are conducted.I am proud to have the right to vote,but have a bad taste in my mouth when I see how they are run.
And the archaic way we still vote.A piece of paper and a black magic marker.I had black marker all over my hand when I was down.We are such a high technological country and we still vote by magic marker.Embarassing!!!

So we might get our first snowfall late tomorrow,as this storm as trended more east,which will enable the cold air to stay in place longer.We'll have to see how the models play out as tomorrow approaches.This is normal for our traditional nor'easters,models tend to waver back and forth up to the day the storm arrives.

I hope everyone gets out to vote tomorrow.Whether we like the candidates or not,need to vote.I always feel lucky to live in a country where we can present our choice on who we want as a leader.I may not like my choices,but I still will vote for who I hope has a chance to turn this country around.
A very nice day to get out,so weather will not be a factor.
Very strong Nor'easter for late Wednesday and Thursday.

Good morning, NEw!

The fates seem to be against me this year in terms of scheduling in my annual physical exam. Originally, it was set for October 29th, but cancelled due to the obvious reasons. Now, it's scheduled for this Thursday afternoon and, hopefully, the rains and wind won't be enough to cause yet another cancellation. I could use a good tune up by my doc.

Aside from the minor humor above, I'm deeply concerned as to what the effects of the Nor'Easter will have on already decimated regions. I was heartened to see, on last night's newscasts, TV videos of many NY marathon runners taking to the streets, with backpacks filled with supplies, and running to Staten Island to help its people. Many of these runners, I believe, live in or around the Manhattan area and feel a personal empathy to those fellow New Yorkers who are currently in need of so much help. Mayor Bloomberg should have proposed this idea at the get go! It's disgusting how certain politicians have such a distorted sense of priorities these days! The "island" could have also used those two humongous generators that were seen set up for just the marathon as well. My thoughts and prayers remain with all those who continue without warmth, homes or power right now, and I sincerely hope that people will continue to donate their money (or time, if possible) to assist in the vast recovery efforts and despite other challenging weather ahead!

Let's hope we can all get through this week unscathed!
