Ted - thanks for the update on Zig and glad to hear he's okay.

We got 26" up my way but no loss of power. Storm broke around 1pm today, after a little over 24 hours of constant snow.

Good morning all,
Well, we managed to survive another one. The storm's intensity on the Cape was more like a hurricane that anything I've seen since moving here 20years ago.

The Cape got varying amounts of the white stuff depending how far east you are. I think the eastern section got 9" or so while Sandwich, the Town I live in, got about about 12 to 15". It wasn't the snow amont's but the weight of the stuff, heavy wet snow fell for a long time, the it got really cold very quickly. Add 50 mph winds with gusts in the 70mph range and you get wholesale power outages throughout the region. We got our power back last night around 10pm. Better than 60% of the Cape is still without power.

We ventured out to a restaurant last night. The only place open in our Town of 22,000 people. They were running on a generator and had wood ovens. The menu was burgers and pizza. The 6mile ride from our house was pretty weird. Total darkness with the stray car on the road. When we got there, the fire in the hearth was roaring, it was warm and there were two other couples there
and were dining in candlelight. This must have been what it was like in the colonial days.

The other day, much to my surprise I got a call originating from the DC area. It was Ted checking up on me. Even though I feel like I know Ted quite well thru our association in this forum, all these years , it was the 1st time we've talked live. His concern was heart felt and much appreciated.

So to Ted, & to all of you who expressed concern and sent e-mails to me. Many thanks.
I'll try and get pictures posted asap.

Zig

....thank you for the update Zig

I wondered of the 'heaviness' of the snow, it's easy to see how wet it was but haven't seen any reports of damage although there must have been some.

With winds that strong the drifts must have been huge too.

Glad y'all are ok....

We didn't get hit quite as bad as Zig but we did get close to 12 inches and then drifts to two feet. It was fun shoveling/blowing the 85 x 20 foot drive off.
