Nemo!

Winter Storm Nemo continues it's relentless trek up the East Coast and in from the Great Lakes in a pincer modoement that will result in a storm that will blossom fully in the NY-NE area. Blizzard conditions with 24"-32" of snow will persist across Cape Cod and a narrow corridor from Boston to Providence. A weaker, but still potent ring will encompass Portland Me., inland 50 miles and then down to at least New Haven, if not New York..

The last time Boston faced a storm of this magnitude in the winter was around 2006 when a truly humongous storm dumped fifty inches of snow at Logan Airport. I know, I was there three days after and parkjing spaces were like polar caves.

Ahhh, the winter. Better learn to it enjoy it before it enjoys you!

That looks like a huge storm in the Northwest!

Wow! That huge spiral spinning in rain and snow from San Francisco to Anchorage looks awesome on the radar. The zone of 8-10" of rains runs right up the coast. Hope everybody out there stays dry and warm!

hybrid Sandy a sign of things to come?

Well, we made it... sort of -- 100s of thousands without power, billions in damage, my favorite beach in RI wrecked (thanks for the images Weather Channel!). This was razor close to the perfect storm. A Lunar high tide combining with the onshore winds combined with a straight-line storm with barometric pressure at 940 millibars (a record) pushed a record 13 foot tidal surge into into Battery Park,Manhattan with subways flooding out.

It could have been worse. With 22 foot waves crashing on the lake shore in Chicago and Cleveland I don't know how much more it could have been worse!. This thing is still a pain in the ass with people buried under 26 inches of snow and no power in WV and the storm spreading from Chicago to SC still today with 30-50mph winds.

I think this is a hybrid model that will repeat,not necessarily with the hurricane component unless it is the season, because of global warming. If anything, this has shown me how helpless we are in the face of nature's global warming wallop. This was in an in-your-face-warning.

Hurricane Sandy

This is the largest hurricane in history (900 miles) and will flood the NY subway, shred the Atlantic City boardwalk and send storm surges 6-11 feet in the NY-Long Island-CT area. The NYSE is closed,possibly for the week.

Hope the power stays on! Stay safe!

We took a trip up to Burke Mtn. and Northern Vermont and the foliage was brilliant and electric. The show Mother Nature puts on these few weeks each year never fails to give me pause to think of beauty. -- All the more this year as they have just announced the tearing down of paradise and putting up of a parking lot.

God bless Mother Nature

Well, the humidity is rising and the barometer's is getting low. According to all of the sources, the street looks the best place to go.
Because, i believe, tonight, for the very first time, probably around half past ten, and for the first time in history, it's gonna start raining men.

Hallelujah.
