Alfred Effect

Alfred came a'callin - heavy wet snow 3 days before Halloween, Almost a million without power in Connecticut - MAJOR tree damage, especially in the north part of the state. Today, 9 days after the storm thousands still have no power in these sub zero temperatures (at night) The year of record breakers continues.
There was no fall here in Southern New England, we jumped right into winter. Even this sky looks cold and omnious. Wonder what will come our way next?

I take it you have power at your place now... being in the path of hurricanes... we have a generator for power outages... but then we don't have the COLD to deal with like you guys. Great page to remember it all by.

Stay safe, New England. I am just miles South West in the corner of NYS and know about the cold, the grey skies and the power outs.

And I am a former New Englander.

That's rough but your photo and journal depict it beautifully. It looks so cold there!

Your sketch is beautiful. So sad you didn't get much of an autumn season, New England weather is harsh!
