Some storm, huh? The Blizzard of ’18 is in the books, or at least in the aftermath stage.
We are running this website from a phone as we huddle in a Toyota for warmth. There is no power, the landscape is trending Siberian and I had to go to Rochester to get a coffee.
That doesn’t stop Cranberry County Magazine, player…
Let’s talk Blizzard, try to keep warm and you might learn something before we’re through.
Pocasset… 5.5 (Pocasset is part of Bourne, but the mainland parts of Bourne got into the South Shore snow depth)
Marston Mills…. 8.0
Fall River… 18.0
New Bedford… 14.0
Wilmington… 31.0 (worst in Massachusetts )
Power is out to over 125k or so, mostly on Cape Cod.
Plympton and Provincetown both were listed as 100% without power for much of yesterday. Provincetown has 5876 Eversource customers… 5873 were without power at the height of the storm.
The crews are out there, busting ass. They can’t go up in a bucket to fix wires until the winds get under 30 MPH.
There may be more trouble on the way.
Talk of another nor’easter next week is making the rounds. Tuesday is the date that I am hearing.
Worse… I was hanging out with a meteorologist last night, and he told me that the European models show a monster storm coming for Massachusetts around March 25th.
Just thought that I might brighten your day some…
