Little Nemo

Nemo was a lamb in central NJ.

Posted an album of midnight pictures if anyone cares to see:

Nemo exiting

Hurricane conditions on the Cape have eased as Blizzard Nemo starts to move out. There is an astrological (monthly) high tide at 10am and barrier island communities like Hull are being highly urged to leave immediately. In Ma. there are no mandatory evac. orders allowed but you'd have to be pretty stupid to stay (I'm watching waves break on backyards). This has the official label "Blizzard" stamped on it as there were three or more continuous hours of sustained winds over 40mph. Peak gust 75mph.

Worcester Ma., reporting 27.5 inches. Hartford and surrounding areas are unofficially reporting 36 plus inches. Most of central, eastern Ma. and southern NH & SE Maine are reporting 18-24". No subway in Boston today, never mind airport. Official Boston total 21.5" as of 8am.

Hundreds of cars buried out on the Long Island Expressway.

If you live in Tahoe or Steamboat Springs or Vail or other great ski area, they are great cause they get this kind of snow on an almost continual basis. No biggie. In the densely populated NE the power outages become increasingly serious as people need shelter who have electric heat. Currently there are 400,000 homes without power.

Time to kick back, do some fine cooking and do a small amount of shoveling, it hasn't stopped blowing and drifting yet.

When's Nemo leaving?

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.
