Storm Nemo!!!

As most of you know, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island got their buttocks spanked until they were candy apple red this past weekend from the devil's spawn of the Blizzard of 1978.

For ha-ha's, I thought I would do an experiment by shooting before and after video's of my front yard and neighborhood. The video's that you're about to see should give you a sample on how badly Connecticut got bitch slapped from Storm Nemo. The first one was shot about 9a Friday morning, with the second being shot some 24 hours later on Saturday.

To put the second video in perspective, our esteemed Guv'nor closed the state to traveling around midnight on Friday, state DOT plows were actually pulled because they couldn't keep up with the snow, and late Saturday morning, a town plow that had chains on almost got stuck while plowing our street.

First, before Storm Nemo buried its butt ugly tentacles.

  1. It told me that both videos were private, so I couldn't see them. Damn.

  2. Joe: Sorry about that. I used the wrong set up when I had uploaded. I should've used "Unlisted" insteads of "Private".

    I will try to fix it.

  3. EEP~ that seriously looks like a cartoon of the North Pole.

  4. M: Should've seen our driveway. Damn wind made snow drifts about up to my shoulders.

    For those who are curious, I'm 5'5".

  5. I vaguely remember the blizzard of '77 in Buffalo, NY when I was a little kid -- we had snow drifts up to the roof of our house. I remember digging tunnels in the snow and thinking it was all kinds of fun. But that's probably only fun if you're a little kid. :)

    Hope you guys are digging out and things are getting back to normal!

  6. Lisa: It took me and my brother-in-law most of Saturday to dig out a path to the street (had drifts about up to my shoulders. We didn't get completely dug out until Sunday.

    And to top it off, I've been sick since Friday night.

  7. Crikey! That was rough, wasn't it?

    Great to know you're safe.

    Greetings from London.

  8. ACiL: Thanks.

    A lot of towns are still digging out and more than a dozen have cancelled school for the week because of it.

  9. Wow, it buried your bird bath! That's a lot of snow.

    1. That year, I do believe we set a state record with about 155+ inches of snow. We got slammed with multiple storms that season and it took until late March/early April for all the snow to melt.
