  1. Some pictures, apologies in advance it it fails, I'm a first-timer and resized them to fit
  2. I'm in Walpole, holy shit it was something in our neighborhood. Knew it was coming and was outside on the deck waiting for it, we live in a neighborhood with a lot of trees and woods, so I am used to the sound of wind as it approaches. This one was like a low rumble that got louder, at first I thought it was thunder but was too continuous and I thought, that's the wind. It was really dark and I Went inside and the wind just came, blowing west to east in backyard with pine needles and leaves blowing through the air. I could hear shit hitting the house, the pelting was obvious; my sons were in their bedrooms when a big pine toppled, scraping their windowns. They saw the tree has it went by, the very top of the pine is on their roof! I also abut Norfolk Aggie HS, i have a huge oak that is on their side, but hangs into my yard. I'm not good on age, but it's old and big, I think those woods are about 80 years old; it always survives big winds, not yesterday, lost a pretty big leder that's hanging into my yard. By far heaviest wind I ever experienced, driving around town to get to the my office was like a puzzle, roads closed all over in my part of town.
  3. I love Pittsburgh, been there many times and have enjoyed it every time. I wouldn't live there because it's not home, but it is a solid city.
  4. Listening to the Norfolk County (MA) police and fire scanner, its been going non-stop....calling in extra police and ambulance to Norwood Hospital,sounds like may be evac'uating parts due to flooding...still pretty good rain and thunder and lightening here, it is not quitting yet
  5. Quite the afternoon, been teeming for about 90 minutes with lots of lightening and wind. Still bolts and thunder as the best moves south of us, this is the best we have experienced in years. For about 90 minutes before it started to rain I could hear the thunder and see the bolts north of us, I was windering if it would dip south and we finally got in on the action. Has to be 2 to 3 inches of rain, I went out for a ride around Walpole and lots of street flooding with the trees blowing pretty good. Very impressive event
  6. Just flipped back to all snow here in Walpole, looks beautiful once again..... Good luck with your dad, Jay,
  7. in order Blizzard of 78 by wide margin....never to be surpassed April Fools 1997 Perfect Storm in 91, not as bad as east facing massachustts, but living in narrangansett and seeing things I had never seen before...high tides and fishing boats in Galilee higher than I had ever seen Hurricane Belle in 76......I was 9 years old and had no idea what to expect, but mom and dad remembered '38 and the hurricanes of the 50's, so I thought it would be devastating: it wasn't and I was dissapointed by Belle August 1975, 104 degrees in PVD....my mom was a nurse and working that day, I remember complaining to my dad that it was too hot honorable mention is the 78 combo of the ice storm and the 21 inches in January, before the blizzard
  8. Pretty slow mover with occasional rumbles of thunder and heavy rain; picked up good rains today between this morning and now
  9. Like all of you, I love snow. But I'm done, I just want to give my lawn a good rake, is that asking too much? Probabably 1.5 here today with the huge flakes so ground covered again. Will melt quickly tomorrow, but raking not gonna happen
  10. Watching Harvey, too. He said 6.5 at Logan as of 1 pm
  11. Last cut of the year I go to 2" so the snow covers the blades easier, don't like glass blades sticking up
  12. First flakes here in Walpole, MA. Flew in from Denver last night, lots of turbulence, was happy when the wheels touched down at Logan
  13. It's pretty awesome watching Bettis, seems like the eye may bypass him? FOr today, better than the NFL
  14. Love days like today, 46 and drizzle with light showers mixed in. Weeded the veggie garden and gave a bit of fert to my onion plants, weeds came up nice and easy. Worked organics into the soil, much better than warm and sun...plenty of time for that
