Snow totals are smashing the Blizzard of '78!
|National Weather Service plotted snowfall reports (obviously some are outdated)|
I have no idea how anyone is going to measure how much snow is on the ground. The wind is whipping up drifts 5'-6' tall. No joke. They're taller than me outside the TV station in Hartford.
Gusts peaked early in the storm at 60 mph in Groton. Gusts to 40-45 were common in the rest of the state. As of 1:57 AM there are only 33,000 power outages. This is no October, 2011 in that department. GOOD! Because temps Saturday night will be dropping into the single digits!
I'd love to say something deep and profound about how this storm came together but I'm too busy watching the radar in awe! To be continued....
