Another December Storm

Looking Down My Street

Here’s the scene, looking down my street, I was greeted to yesterday morning at around 7 A.M.  The first nor’easter of Winter (and hopefully the last) brought over two feet of snow to my part of New Jersey.  Because I live so near the ocean (only about 10 miles as the crow flies) this storm was very intense as it passed by, with 50 mph winds, bizzard white-out conditions, and about 14 hours of snow.   Some parts of the state were reporting 80 mph wind gusts, so this was essentially a snow hurricane.  During a news conference yesterday afternoon, New York City’s mayor said this was the 5th worst storm in the city’s history.  I can believe it.  We had 5 foot high drifts and the wind was still blowing hard most of the day.  We share a driveway with our neighbors and it took us almost 5 hours to shovel out the cars.  Last year we had three storms, all of them nearly this large, within a two week period.  Here’s hoping that we don’t get a repeat this season!!

  1. Thanks Ron! Hopefully it will be about 50 degree (F) here by New Year’s Eve and most of this lovely snow will be gone. Typical New Jersey winter..if you don’t like the weather just wait a few minutes, it’ll change.

  2. You got dumped on….we missed the snow here in Omaha and only got the freezing rain! Glad I’m not shoveling that lol
