It's a snow day in Connecticut due to the big blizzard that moved through our area last night. We live within a mile of the Long Island Sound, so we don't usually get as much snow as inland. In fact, on the news, our weather forecast always refers to snowfall amounts on the coastline and inland - or in our particular case "North of the Merritt" which means north of route 15 - the Merritt Parkway.
Looks like we only got about 4-5 inches of light fluffy snow. North of the Merritt - it seems my fellow nutmeggers got from 4.5 to 9 inches.
- 9" in Guilford
- 8" in Milford
- 7" in Windsor Locks
- 4.5" in Bridgeport
Massachussets really got hit hard. Weather.com reports from 14-24 inches across the state:
- 23.8" in Boxford
- 23.5" in Topsfield
- 14.6" in Boston
These are great - but let's see what my friend Mary Schwalm reported for North Andover, Massachussets.
Yup - that's the way to measure snow. Action Hero and a Fashion Doll are far more interesting than my BBQ grill.
Hey Mary - I think Barbie, er, I mean Fashion Doll, needs a sweater and hat for the next blizzard! I might know someone who could make that happen.
