To me today feels a little like July 10, 1989. I know, July and January are very different. It makes no difference. July 10, 1989 was a big weather day and I wasn’t there. It still stings a little to think about it.
July 10, 1989 was the day Hamden saw an F4 tornado! Farther upstate in Bantam there was an F3. For me it was a day I had wisdom teeth extracted. I watched most of the tornado coverage from home!
It’s the same with last night’s storm and today’s dig out. I am frustrated to be home.
Would I have gotten it right last night when so many underpredicted? Probably not, but since we’re dealing in fantasy: Of course. I would have nailed it.
At the moment the snow on our back deck is at least four feet deep. To get to our front steps you have to walk through a canyon of snow. It’s totally nuts! There are piles on my street higher than my vantage from the driver’s side window.
I had to leave the house this afternoon to drop a DVD off at FedEx. There will probably be lots of that over the next few weeks. I rolled a little video to give my out-of-town friends a feel for what they’re missing.
Brief answer: Nothing!
