So, some of you may be wondering about the aftermath—how bad it got here. Well, relatively, it wasn’t bad. I mean, it was a record-setting amount of snow in just a day, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as the ice storm of 1998.
Now that was horrible. Five+ days without power over here, and far worse in other areas. Parts of Canada were just…ruined.
And for some places, the weather is horrible any which way.
Snow up to my shoulders? No. It was only sixteen inches.
My fingers swelled up doing some shoveling. Just some pain. I got out the yard stick early this afternoon to actually measure all the heights. Not as high as what was measured in Portland, Maine—18″. Up against the house, I measured 22″ accumulation (this includes the snow that was already there, drafts, falling snow from the roof).
About an hour without power. Just a pain, really. The snow was still fluffy. This was a storm relatively easy to deal with, so to say.
I did learn, however, an issue regarding the smartphone camera. It’s so bad when it comes to low-light images that you have to use flash in darkness. And it doesn’t work AT ALL against glass.
and New York got the worst of it. Mass. got 31+ inches. Blizzard and transit closures cost the NYC economy an estimated $200 million.
It could’ve been worse. That’s what they always say. Well, it was worse prior to 2015.
Well, that’s what I have for today. Thanks for reading.
