Damage In Tolland

Memorial Day Weekend Coastal/Snow

Recommended Posts

Okay guys I am going to post this on the off chance any of you have heard of such a thing. My neighbor just stopped by and asked me if I saw the strange phenomena last night during the storm. She said after the power went out and during the heavy snow she took her dog for a short walk on our dirt road. She said in the trees there were thousands of sparkling lights. At first she thought a branch was resting on the powerline but no it was not that. She said it seemed to her thousands of fire flies had come out during the storm. I nodded and grinned but was thinking the lady has gone nuts. I have no explanation and just can't believe her story but the neighbor has always been sane. Some type of St Elmos's fire? I have no idea and hesitated posting this but it was just such a weird conversation. We did have thundersnow so there were convective elements in the storm. Don't have to muck up the thread with a response unless someone has heard such a thing!

LOL maybe fire flies?

Post general Memorial Day weather/activities in the new thread. Let's keep this one about the storm. It was nice of Kevin to make a snowstorm thread in late May.

What a wild winter! It starts with a hurricane going east to west into NJ creating a blizzard in WV and it ends with thunders now in New England during Memorial Day weekend.

I don't know the verification time of this image you posted, but it matches up well with last night.

I had a few mangled snowflakes fall here between 1:30 - 3:30am with the two bands that moved through.

 

It's been fun tracking all of these storms this year.

 

Have a good summer folks, I'm out of here.

 

I missed it by 10 minutes here...I woke up at 0230 and nothing was happening but I looked at the radar and saw that those heavier echos had just passed.  I thought they would have produced some flakes.

 

Sorry to hear that you're leaving....I know I can't always be on but I try to chime in from time to time.  Have a good one...

yeah, movie theatres had to be packed yesterday!

Our Museum had its best day in 2 years. Knowing the weather helps us staff accordingly. Rainy summer weekends equals Movies Museums and Malls.

I am at around 500' on Winnisquam but woke up this am to something very strange across the lake in Sanbornton. A farm and the Steele Hill Resort were blanketed in snow! They both sit at maybe 1200' so I can verify where the snow line was in the southern Lakes Region. Sorry but did not take pics very disappointed in myself for that. It rained like a sonofabitch here but there may have been flakes however did not weenie-spotlight it. What an event!!!!

Dendrite, it would be sweet to break this thread out starting like 4 days ago to capture the lead up analysis and obs.

I tried, but the software puked all over me. I had all of the storm posts from page 1-30 something selected out and then it lost them all. It gets finicky when you try spanning multiple pages. It took about a half hour to get that far and I'm not about to try it again. :lol:

49.9F right now here with BKN skies. Unreal for late May without precip and E-NE flow. If we can clear out and decouple 32F is within reach.
