For Winter 2018-19 we got a pretty good snowstorm back in early or mid November, then another one that was slightly less significant and then a light dusting and then one that melted almost right away. In other words it’s been an extremely mild winter— snow wise. It’s been cold as ever with temps sometimes in the upper single digits but the few times we’ve had precipitation we’ve lucked out and the weather gave us temps in the upper 40s so we got a lot of rain.
Now, January 17th we approach a Winter Storm Warning which calls for something like 15-30” of snow— and I’m not exaggerating those predictive numbers— that’s what it’s calling for— to hit us between Friday and Sunday.
Normally I don’t care. We work from home. We have plenty of food and DVDs to entertain us. But this weekend #2 son and I were planning a trip to our favorite gun shop out on the North Shore and then continue on up to another gun shop in Kittery Maine so I’ve been watching this one pretty closely. Throughout the week it’s been all over the place.
A week out and they had 1-2” for the weekend. A few days later it was 5-8” and now on the eve of the whole thing started we’ve got the aforementioned Snowmeggedon. I hope it’s the light and fluffy variety because shoveling the heavy stuff is brutal, but we’re overdue for a whalloping. Hopefully this doesn’t mean we’re on a new weather track to get hit every few days but that’s also happened often in the past.
We’re as ready as we can be, and hopefully we’ll get through this one unscathed, but I can almost promise you we’ll be here Monday back to work with business as usual.
