Nasty Nor' Easter Here.
I'm accustomed to Nor' Easters here, but yesterday's storm was different - the thickest, wettest snow I've ever seen, and over 8 inches of it. Before the big snow arrived, we had thunder snow - it sounded just like a full blown summer thunder storm. Then, the heavy snow followed. We lost power with trees coming down everywhere and I just got it back an hour ago. Thank you, full house generator! :-D

On topic content: I cooked pork ternderloins that evening on the BGE, sorry, no pics - I was in a hurry and sweating disaster from falling trees. While I was outside, I heard numerous trees around my house cracking and coming down. My house is surrounded by huge trees and I was waiting for one to come down. Besides the huge branch in the pic, I was lucky.

I can't wait for proper Spring!

Thanks for sharing, happy to hear you all are ok.

Glad you are OK John. Trees can be unpredictable with that added weight.

When I took over the property last fall, I had three large trees cut down, I'm glad I did.

Glad the house itself wasn't damaged. Stay safe....

I had about the same amount here as well and it was heavy friggin snow but I think the storm hit you guys worse. We didn’t get the thunder here (or at least not much). Think the wind was higher down there too

The nastiest I was in was the October storm a few years back that dumped about twice as much heavy snow when all the trees still had leaves. Trees down everywhere and no power for a week and a half

Glad you were safe and didn’t have more damage

I'll admit that it was amazingly pretty - until the trees started coming down and we lost power. The thunder snow was cool. It's been a very wet winter here and the ground is loose. We're looking at another possible Nor' Easter coming Sunday evening. Can't say I'm ready for "insult to injury". :-D

I cooked burgers on the BGE this evening and when I finished, I saw street lights on.......rejoice! :-D

Looks like a bad one. But you were still out cooking in it. Gotta love that!

Pig_Farmer 03-08-2018 11:23 PM

Glad to hear that you're safe. Stay warm and keep the generator fueled.

That's the spirit John. Glad to hear nothing major.

Up North here in Paramus we lucked only some only 5" of snow.
Some of the heaviest snow in long time, more like a sheet of ice from the rain,befor the snow.
Broke a carter pin on my snow blower!!:shocked:
