Well, that was both a relief and a disappointment, at least here. Got the yard picked up (again) and the rest of last year's wood flung in the shed. What could go undercover went, the rest was turned loose and left to its own devices.
Weathermen tend at this time of year to get a mite hysterical over anything snow-based. Yes, it came from the northeast, yes we had a bit of wind and two inches of snow, but that aint no noreaster.
Just read the reports coming off one of the 'net weather places, and again they have lumped all of New England with New Jersey and NYC. Neither of which is technically New England. Nit picky, perhaps, but seeing a blizzard devastating 'New England' is, I'm sorry, selling snake oil to gain viewers. And it scares your friends who see the map, see the entire area blocked in as Nor'easter territory, and they get worried. Are you all right, they ask, in email. Yes, we say. We only got a bit. Well, I saw on the news that NYC was getting hit again...you're not far from there. No, no, four hundred miles, give or take. We're fine. Well, I do worry, you know. It did say New England...
And my heart does go out to those people there who got smacked in the face with this. It's like the "custard pie and then the pig bladder" routine in a ghastly one-two punch.
