Finally, our very own snowpocalypse right here in Brattleboro. Too bad we don't have a local network TV affiliate to hype it for us. Then again, there's us.
In case you haven't looked out the window yet, it's snowing! On Cedar Street, it's snowing very hard, with many inches of snow on the ground, and almost no traffic on the snowy street itself. Visibility is fair -- I can see the house across the street through the falling snowflakes. There is little wind. The temperature is 25 degrees.
I measured the snow outside my back door with a ruler. In a shallower area, I am recording 11 inches of snow and rising. There are higher drifts, but I'm trying to be conservative.
I have no idea if there are closings -- I imagine there are. Meanwhile, all the cars from the other tenants are still parked in the driveway and socked in with snow. The owners have not yet emerged to free them (which I believe will involve "driving out of the driveway over the snow"). We, on the other hand, drive a Civic and will have to shovel. ;)
From my informant in Milford, NH, I have learned that they also have "lots of snow" and that as of 9:15 am, it was still in the form of "microflakes." Here, the flakes have gotten bigger which (according to my uncle) means the snow will not go on much longer.
Got snow stories or pictures? Feel free to post them below or send them in...
