Whatcha Really Really Want
Posted by Pete Bouchard
You knew this was coming. Today just had that chill-to-the-bone and impending-storm feel to it. Heck there was even a halo around the sun early in the afternoon (sometimes a sign of a pending snowstorm). By now, you may have an idea what's in store. (And at least at this point in the season we know how to drive in it.)
But here's what this storm isn't:
* a nor'easter
* a blockbuster (more than a foot of snow)
* a coastal flooding event
* a storm that will cause major power outages
* a long storm
* and, unfortunately, I can't call it our last...yet (we're still in the "shooting gallery")
What's to come?
* startup by midnight
* messy AM commute
* changeover to mix by EARLY AM
* some rain along the coast
Now I know what you're thinking. Does 2-4 really mean 12-18? No, no, no. We have this storm in-hand. We've analyzed this frontwards, backwards, upside down, sideways and diagonally. I'll leave it at that.
Spring is still coming Wednesday. And while we have to keep our guard up for another storm late week, the 7 day is quiet for now. I've often said that March can be a winter month, and unlike last March (where we went on a tear from the 18th to the 23 of 70s and 80s) it's looking like Old Man Winter will lay claim to this one.
