It's a dud in this part of MA. The government only cares about what's east of 495 anyway, so we're used to that. It's only a crisis if Boston is affected.
Fired up the stove with some cardboard today just to get the chill out. Even though it's 60° out, the wind is sucking the heat right out of this place. Chimney was pulling between a.02 & .06 with no fire due to the wind. We didn't even get a 30 mph gust at the roof level where the anemometer is, but the trees on the hills around us were getting hammered. At one point they looked as if they were laying flat! Wind speed is MUCH higher up there. That's about the highest wind speed I've ever seen on the hill in the 10 years I've lived here. The house has seen 40 mph gusts once before, but this time it all skipped over us. So far my barn is still standing and no trees came crashing through it so all is well.
