I sit in my recliner waiting for the nor’easter of March 2017. When I left work at 1530 (3:30 pm) the sky was blue. At 1630, the sky is cloudy, wind is growing and the temperature is slowly dropping.
The meteorologists are still unsure how much snow we will get. The estimate is between 3 to 12 or more inches depending on where the rain-snow line falls. Two inches would be more than has fallen here so far this winter. The snow will come with 40 to 50 mph winds tomorrow which could lead to blizzard-like conditions. Regardless, I will wait for the winter blast to settle and then… Then take my labs for a playful snowy walk. We enjoy when it snows, lots of snow.
Listening to the news channel is depressing. They are talking as if this nor’easter will be the snow event of the century. Roads are pretreated. The governor has stated that ‘they will go all out’ to keep the roads open. Airlines have already canceled 2000 flights. Stores are being raided for staples. Yet, the worst might be 12 inches plus north of Baltimore. I wonder what the verbiage would be if the forecast was 26 inches which occurred January 2016 while my wife and I were in Las Vegas.
Will there be enough snow to use the snowblower? I will learn in the morning. In the meantime, relaxing and listening to the frenzied reports on the local channels.
