Bleeping blizzards!

NJ nor'easter snow accumulation as of 9PM, Ocean Twp (Monmouth County)

Soooooo there’s a blizzard in New Jersey.

It’s a lot more snow than anyone thought we’d get.

This was snowfall prediction for Athena-the-nor’easter as of yesterday morning (around 9am):
National Weather Service snow totals prediction, around 9AM EST

All I know is: I’m writing this on Wednesday night (November 7), and there’s a lot of snow on the ground, and it hasn’t stopped snowing yet.

What is that, three inches? At least?

And it’s really heavy, wet, slushy snow! It sticks to EVERYTHING!

You know what’s really fun? Just like last year’s Snowtober blizzard, this is way too early in the season for a blizzard of this magnitude; there are still too many leaves on the trees, and the weight of snow + leaves is too much for the trees, so tree limbs are falling off and knocking down power lines that were JUST FIXED from Hurricane Sandy. Half of these people who JUST got power back after ten days without? Gone again, just like THAT.

Stupid weather.

…Y’know, I’m emotionally drained from all this, and I got out of this mess relatively unscathed (so far). This is nuts.

  1. I must say that it has been difficult to watch the news. So much weather (bad) in the east coast recently. Hang in there. bill

  2. Hurricane, Nor’easter, Blizzard, Locusts, Frogs, Water, Fire, Air and Dirt. Magnets? You’re engineering these weather patterns to increase traffic to your blog!

    • Yeah, sorry, it’s all me. Don’t forget earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, and haboobs, all of which I’ve scheduled to strike New Jersey within the next year. Stay tuned.
