Hey. Anyone Notice the Snow?

The snow is so bad, why, there isn’t a blog within 70 miles that isn’t posting about it! So, without further delay, it’s bandwagon-jumping time. I apologize for my host, which seems to have been cutting in and out. Electricity problems, I suppose.

Check out this image. It’s fun!

See the radar reflectivity? The darker green areas are the areas of heaviest snowfall. Notice that nasty dark green band south east of Boston extending down south of Providence. At the base of that dark band is where we are. In the area between Swansea and the Taunton River there is (for some bizarre reason) unusually heavy snowfall. And the animation loop shows that the storm is just hovering here for the most part in the last few hours.

This morning they were predicting a total of over 30 inches in the greater Fall River area by the time we dig out. As Teen Girl Squad would say, “Dag, yo!”

If you want to see some obligatory pics of the impressive drifting, look no further than this of the swingset as it looked this morning (click for full sized image):

My paltry blizzard-like-conditions photo album is here.

It would be cool if I had the space and bandwidth to upload some Quicktime movies of the snow blowing around. But maybe it’s just as well. If I had the room I’d probably be out hiking around the neighborhood with my camera.

Perhaps I will have an actual substantive post for later.

That's quite the sizable drift. We had some drifting. As of this morning, most of the drifting put snow in the driveway, so shoveling was a pain. But nothing quite like your swingset.
