    Top 5(ish) New England Weather events

    Blizzard of '78. 2013 Blizzard, coupled with the snow depths that winter. October snow followed by Irene. Close to two weeks without power in a couple months. October 2005 flooding. Memorable because several roads in town were flooded, and I've never seen that around here before or since. 1973 ice storm...I have only vague memories of using a runner sled in my yard.....those things are useless without ice.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    It's not so much about cat 1 winds for OBX. A moderate storm surge combined with locally heavy rains could be an issue. I wouldn't expect a lot of structural damage due to winds from Dorian, but OBX is basically a few feet above seal level, and in the middle of the ocean.

    Hurricane Dorian Banter Thread

    Josh and folks like him are a bit crazy IMHO (perhaps crazy isn't the right description). That being said, from a historical perspective, they provide invaluable documentation. Perhaps a couple people who might consider riding out a hurricane will see their videos and realize why evacuation orders are given even when a direct hit is not a certainty.

    The 2018-2019 Ski Season Thread

    Made it to Sugarloaf Tuesday night (the 16th). A few flurries were in the air. The weather was epic on Wednesday. Clear blue sky, hardly any wind, and by noon or so, conditions were great up top (had softened enough) and the bottom was really soft, but not impossible slushy. Decided not to buy a ticket this morning, as forecast was a bit suspect (incoming clouds, showers/flurries and wind) and it looked crispy up top. Turned out to be the right call as the winds came in after noon, and they pretty much shut down all the lifts by the time things were softening up. My legs were pretty sore from the previous day anyway....looking down Bubble Cuffer (at least I think that's what this was). All natural snow trail. Incredible cover for mid-April.

    The Little Storm That Could - March 3/4

    Don't have a snow board, and by the time I got out to clear my driveway, had about 11". Snow has settled to about 6-7" or so, which was the upper end of what I had hoped for. Definitely ripped for a few hours when I was sleeping. November and March are clearly the best months for snow in SNE :-)

    Damaging Wind With Forests Leveled

    Am I missing something? If the forecast for gusts around 60+ mph winds verifies, it's going to be a wild day. Lot of ho hum posts...
  10. Quick burst of snow/graupel. 29º/21º Will be interesting if nothing else. Or maybe not.
