    I'm down in New Orleans. The entire city is practically shut down from snow /ice and record cold. It's actually colder here than back home. Radar from last night.

    Heading outside for this incoming band.
  3. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Local news WTNH just said they were picking up lighting in the same area. Not sure if they use the blitzortung network. I did see a friend in New London post about thunder on Facebook.
  4. January 4-6 Coastal Bomb Observations/Nowcast

    Just NW of New London is getting lit up with lighting.

    Moderate snow here along the shoreline in CT. Nice winter look outside.
  8. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    Fellow wood burners I am sure can relate. Been burning wood like crazy in the wood stove. Mostly red oak. Just tapped in to my stash of Honey Locust. This stuff burns like rocket fuel.... Picture from 3 years ago when I cut and split it. It's well seasoned now. Almost feel bad burning it as its such gorgeous wood but it puts out insane heat..
  9. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    Wise choice. The biggest issue I encounter are t-stats set incorrectly or too low. Mostly people being frugal on the heat that results in burst pipes/sprinklers. They learn quick not to turn the heat down to 58-60 overnight....
  10. Long lasting intense Cold for New England

    I work in the HVAC and plumbing field. Been doing it for the last 12 years. There have been much colder air masses but the amount of frozen/burst pipes the past week is crazy. I clocked almost 50 hours in overtime this week. On a side note. Skilled trades are booming in New England. Send your kids to trade school. Cost practically nothing for school and the pay is really good.

  14. Dec 22-23 snow/ice threat

    I'm about a mile from the shoreline and everything is staring to ice up here pretty good. My road is partially frozen over. Going to be ugly tonight. Heres my PWS. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KCTBRANF14

    I'm up in Buffalo for work. It's been pretty epic up here. It's been endless snow for days. Today and tonight are going to be fun up here.
