Blizzard 2015

After watching how the Blizzard of 2015 was a bust, since the national news media is NY/LA centric:

A Scarborough man uses his snowblower to clear his driveway Tuesday during the storm.

The storm was scorned as a bust in New York City, where predictions had called for snow to match amounts that were seen in eastern New England. But only 9.8 inches fell in Central Park, according to the National Weather Service.

In New England, however, the storm delivered: Snowfall totals included 27 inches in Lewiston, 26 inches in Sanford and 27.4 inches on Portland’s East End, and those measurements were taken late Tuesday evening when the snow was still falling at a good clip.

Portland set a record for Jan. 27 with 21.6 inches of snow at the Portland International Jetport, breaking the record of 8.3 inches set in 1963. Nearly every community in southern and eastern Maine topped a foot of snow, and many towns and cities in York and Cumberland counties were at or near 20 inches. Towns in Massachusetts and Connecticut reported more than 30 inches of snow.

We are facing light snow Friday with another Nor’easter on Monday.

Dixie got herself stuck in the deep snow in her yard in Yarmouth.

Arizona is looking pretty good about now…
