Mar.25th
So we have ourselves another winter storm to watch.And I have to tell you,eventhough we have the forecasts for the main effects to go out to sea,I see a lot of things happening this morning,that make me want to sit back and be careful.Tonight will be the telling time for who gets whacked and who misses.Cape Cod still looks like they will get hit pretty hard,up here toward the Boston area,still looks like fringe effects,but certainly not written in stone.Sit back a enjoy the ride today.Watching local forecasts and the amounts of snow are all over the place.

Mar. 26th
Well,for me I haven't seen a flake of snow,but on cape cod,its a raging blizzard with heavy snow and winds gusting over 50 mph,and due to get stronger as the monster at sea continues to deepen.
If I see anything it will be a few flurries,but the outer cape cod and Nantucket will probably get close to a foot,but the winds will be the story with power outages down there. Even my winds up here are gusting over 30 mph close to 40.

Mar.27th
Hard to think about weather when we lose two firefighters in a rapid burning fire in a tenement in Boston yesterday.The extreme winds certainly aided the quick spreading flames.Firefighters were trapped in a basement where the fire started and when a window broke the flash fire trapped them.13 other firefighters were injured.Can't say enough about our firefighters.

Mar.28th
So I made to another Friday.We have the 50's today,but not going to last and we have a cold wet weekend ahead.May salvage tomorrow morning.Possible 2-4 inches of rain,may cause some small streams to spill over.Plus strong winds may cause some coastal flooding on Sunday.Problem is this is going to hang around through Monday until the upper low moves through.This may be a hint at a cool wet spring.

Valentine's day (NEwxguy)
so how long do I have to keep this on before I can chew it?
Valentine's day
life is good (NEwxguy)
I hope you have a good reason for waking me
life is good

LT,no doubt,once the window broke,and the huge winds came in off the Charles,it was like a giant bellows and the fire just exploded.

I guess in a way, the storm was possibly somewhat responsible, those strong winds certainly helped the fire spread, and made it more difficult to fight.

Hi,Looking,and unfortunately we tend to take their service for granted.It certainly brings it home just how dangerous their job is,and it is all for saving peoples lives.It is heartbreaking,my prayers go out to their families.

Heart-breaking, just heart-breaking--there we were in our cozy house, the wind roaring outside but we so safe--and there those brave firefighters were, trapped and in anguish, and then death came for them. A terrible, terrible thing. We must never take their service for granted.

Two firefighters lost their lives responding to a nine-alarm fire at a brick brownstone in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood Wednesday.

More than a dozen other firefighters were injured.

"In 30 years, I've never seen a fire travel that fast, escalate that quickly, and create such havoc in such a short period of time," Deputy Fire Chief Joe Finn told reporters.

He identified those killed as Lt. Edward Walsh, 43, and Firefighter Michael Kennedy, 33.

Yesterday's storm was one for the history books.
Considering how far out to sea this storm was,Cape Cod had 6-10 inches of snow.Nantucket island recorded an 83 mph wind gust.Most of Eastern southern New England had wind gusts over 50 mph.
We had a tree come down on our street,I had to make a detour and come into my street from the opposite direction.
But that storm is history,as weather is in a very progressive pattern.Next system coming in tomorrow with showers,then a potential heavy rain coastal storm for late Saturday and through the day on Sunday.

Yesterday was an incredible day in our area.So much happening,but ending with the tragic loss of two firefighters in Boston.Winds gusting over 50 mph certainly aided the quick explosion of flames that trapped two firefighters in the basement where it started.Every year we lose dozens of these brave men who save countless lives.

Hurricane-force wind gusts of 83 mph were reported Wednesday morning on Nantucket, where more than 1,200 National Grid customers lost power and the high school was opened as a shelter.

NSTAR reported almost 10,000 customers out on Cape Cod.

In Chatham, wild winds hammered the coast, as the National Weather Service warned mariners to stay off the water. A 19th century house that was under renovation collapsed in Chatham at the former of Silver Leaf and Main Street.

The pressure dropped down to 960 millibars, and that is stronger than the October snowstorm we had a couple of years ago and the February blizzard in 2013, so this is a pretty massive storm

Hi NEw, yeah this is very interesting. I guess you've been looking at the discussions on Pcroton's blog too. I thought I detected a "cyclonic" turning over North Carolina even before checking his blog this morning.

A VERY POWERFUL STORM WILL DEVELOP WELL OFFSHORE LATER TODAY. AT
THIS TIME IT LOOKS LIKE MOST OF THE IMPACT FROM THIS STORM WILL
OVER SOUTHEAST MASSACHUSETTS AND SOUTHEAST RHODE ISLAND TONIGHT
INTO WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER...THERE IS A LOW PROBABILITY THAT IF THE
TRACK SHIFTS A BIT TOO THE WEST... SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL COULD
REACH AS FAR WEST AS THE BOSTON TO PROVIDENCE CORRIDOR.
