  1. We just got power back after 7 hours!
  2. We've had our power out for about 3.5 hours now. 25.2 with a small coating of snow over the ice.
  3. Thanks @ORH_wxman and @HIPPYVALLEY . I know that over time the amazing snow forecasts turn into meh events and city-scouring winds turn into a windy day. Seat of the pants estimating is one thing. I'm glad to hear that knowledgeable people suggest that some discounting happen. It's that perspective thing - ice can be fun and beautiful in old pictures and a gigantic pain when you're looking at a super busy end of the week.
  4. Having had 12 days without power in 2008, I'm really not liking those graphics. All joking aside, what are the realistic chances of that Pivotal Weather forecast coming true? I'm living at the bottom of a hill around 825'. Thank you!
  5. I'm good with the sleet-fest. It'll probably be warm enough to scrap off and move out of the way. The disconnect between the two maps mildly irks my "data should be well coordinated" self.
  6. The BOX map has the .25-.5" ice accretion continuing east to about Townsend, MA. Yet, just over the border, GYX has the same range only going through maybe Rindge, NH. For those of us who live relatively near the NH/MA border, it's a conundrum. Do we have a relatively mild case of icing? Again, like so many posters, I'm not rooting for a major ice storm. The great photos of the sun through the iced, bent over branches didn't balance out the twelve days without power.
  7. I have 8" of snow and it's snowing pretty hard out there. Note: this is not one of those snowboards, perfectly level in exactly the right spot type of measurements.It's 26.6 degrees too.
  8. If that GEM run were to verify.... New Ipswich isn't that far away from me.
  9. I hope she heals quickly! And if something doesn't seem right, keep pushing for another opinion. My family has some experience with this. And @moneypitmike, I'm glad to hear that the angels were on your side this morning too.
  10. The Triazicide looked promising until I read about the danger to aquatic life. We're near the bottom of a hill with the lowest part technically wetlands. Cross the small street and there's lakefront property on the other side. So it's a no go for me. Any thoughts on something else that might work - no pets here but we have a garden (and the Triazicide would have worked there) and the wetlands issue. The ticks have been terrible! Last time we hiked, we were on some class 6 roads one of which that needed to be mowed. I think we had about 30 ticks on us from maybe a 20 minute portion in tall grass. And we've found plenty just in the garden, etc.
  11. Did you see this article about the Saturday morning photo at Franconia Notch?
  12. I don’t remember if I did. I tend to be the “stick a ruler in the snow whenever “ type person so maybe not as accurate as people want. We have 7.5” left on the ground.
