Storm 12-09-09

PostBy: PC 12-47E On: Wed Dec 09, 2009 4:05 pm

Not much snow, about 4" and changing to rain, in the Mid Coast near the Sheepscot River. The temp is 34.5*F and going up. The wind is strong out of the East South East at about 35 to 40 knots and gusting higher.
I just manually closed the Baro on the flue pipe, to add more coal, and the manometer shot up to -.12 WC. :shock: We have not lost power yet... but I am sure that will be next.

That's what I'm waiting for ..... surprised we haven't yet! :lol:

36° out here, raining a bit, only had 20mph gust (which is nothing) ... & I think the wind has peaked ... at least so far. Might pick up again tonight. We'll see ......

Only 6" of snow. wet, heavy stuff too.

Hmmm guessing 7-8" here, cleared the driveway 2hrs ago just at the tail end of it. Was watching the reflectivity radar to time it just right. Windy and some rain off/on, the flue damper is flappin'.

Got soaked blowing snow, hung the gear up next to the Alaska 140 to dry and fixed myself a stiff Vodka Tonic.

Cheers.

I think we have about 6 inches here in Bath.

Rainy, windy, and nasty now.

Only a few inches way up north so far. Snow didn't really start coming down til about 5 pm. Suppose to get anywhere from 8"-10". I'll be up at 5 am to clear the driveway so the wife can go to work. The Cub Cadet is ready to go! Then it's off to my neighbors to clean their driveway. He had a stroke 2 years ago and I clean their snow out. They really appreciate it. They don't have much money so I don't charge them anything. A guy up the road cleans driveways for $30 a pop. They can't afford that.

Only about 3-4" here before it started to pour rain. Ended up with about an inch of completely waterlogged slush. Cleaned it all off in the rain. Came in to get dried off and looked out the back window to check for bucks - it's antlered deer season in NJ this week. Saw the turkeys strutting around and a couple of yearlings in the woods trying to kick them! Turkeys just hustled a few steps and completely ignored the yearling :) :D :lol:
