It’s too Early for Snow!

by Erica Dinho on November 2, 2011

Life in New England has been crazy this week, with a record breaking October snowfall. This was a big one…thirteen inches at our house! Between the snow and the cold temperatures, it felt like the middle of winter here.

Because of the leaves still on the trees and the subsequent weight from the snow, there was an incredible amount of broken limbs, many of which landed on power lines. Over 3 million without power and many of those without heat and water. We lost power for a couple of days, and we were among the luckiest. Many people are still without power four days after the storm with so much more clean-up still ahead. There are an unbelievable amount of trees still down! Shelters are open in the area and schools are still closed. My husband has never seen anything like this and he has lived here his entire life.

We just got our internet back today, which is why I haven’t been around. So, it looks like we’re almost back to normal at our house.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween and best wishes to all those still enduring the effects of the storm.

Truly amazing, Erica. I have a daughter in NYC and she was in shock.

In Manhattan we had wet snow, but it was messy and ugly. How beautiful your pictures are. Your son is an artist.

I was amazed that the northeast got snow before Minnesota! It is pretty but can make for a long winter! But your son knows how to make the best of it! The photos are lovely. I am sure my landscape will look similar in a few weeks.

Holy snowballs! You guys got hammered with the white stuff. I’m glad that you got your power back on so quickly (relatively).

What a bummer about losing your power! The pics of the snow are really pretty though I don’t miss it to be honest. When we lived in New York, it would just hang around forever! Plus with all the soot it always went a hideous grey. Stay warm!
