  1. Yeah, according to National Grid outage map, they are estimating power to be restored by Thursday, 11:45 PM in other parts of Dracut. We've always been pretty fortunate in my neighborhood for having it restored quickly. Not sure why, but it's been the main reason why I haven't bought a generator. Although I'm thinking I should probably stop tempting fate.
  2. Yes, came back on last night around 10:30. So, just under 24 hours which isn't bad. Very consistent with Dec. 08 and Oct. 11 in terms of restoration time.
  3. Yep. We lost power between 12:30 and 1 AM. The winds were rattling the house during that time.
  4. Game is as volatile as this storm, lol.
  5. Roaring overhead now. According to National Grid Map, lots of outages just a few streets over.
  6. Wind is roaring overhead.
  7. You picked a great day, not just for weather / conditions / crowd-avoidance - but according to some posts on Alpine Zone, Wildcat is having power problems today.
  8. Happy Birthday!
  9. I think it will take a while to pass through our area. We should do ok for some time. Has picked up quite a bit here over the last 10 minutes or so.
  10. Three hours since first flakes - maybe 1/2"
  11. 2.5 here so far. Thought I'd get 4-5 without too much trouble. Oh well. Looks nice though.
  12. First flakeage in Dracut - 20 deg
  13. After the initial burst early this afternoon, it flipped to rain more quickly than I thought. Then, it took a long time to flip back. In fact, I was skeptical whether it was going to happen at all. But, as you, Will and others pointed out, it was just a matter of time. Once the wind direction changed, the flip shortly followed. Decent finish at least. It certainly looks nice out there.
  14. Just noticed the sound of the rain all of a sudden went silent. Temp dropped 3 degrees rather quickly, and large snowflakes finally falling.
  15. Pouring rain here. But, wind has shifted and line looks like it's creeping ever so slightly east.
