Travel-halting blizzard for New England

Roofs could collapse.

12 Mar 2018 – New England to face another nor’easter and blizzard conditions, warns

Up to two feet (60 cm) of snow – or even more – are forecast for parts of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine.

Several inches of snow are forecast, or have already accumulated, in parts of Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia. Smaller snowfall amounts are expected in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and around the New York City area.

Flat roofs that have not been cleared of the excessive snowfall from the last nor’easter may fail during this heavy snow event, says Accuweather.

  1. Back in 1967 at about this time of year as a High School student in western Massachusetts, and on four consecutive Tuesdays, there were major snowstorms. In one particularly fast one, it didn”t even start snowing until after 8:00 AM and there was six inches on the ground by noon. So even though this is unusual it is definitely normal weather, and cannot have any connection with global warming.

  2. Although I live quite a bit south of New England, here in southeastern VA we had the beginning of this storm… which hit as windy, icy rains. This AM with warnings of coastal flooding in many areas as well as black ice warnings early AM.

    While this is no where near as bad as what New England is getting… it sure does remind me of why I left the place almost 20 years ago! I got sick of having to get up an hour or two ahead of when I normally would to dig out the car if I wanted to use it (although I normally took the subway & bus – eventually sold the car off because it was such a huge hassle there).

    And I worry about my brother in NH – who works in the water department and helps man the snow plows. Sometimes he has to walk into work (3 miles or so) because the roads are impassible until the trucks get to plowing.
