Tonight...

...a remarkably strong winter storm looks to be forming up on the northeast. 


If I were malevolent and had planned ahead, tonight would be the night I'd have myself and some conspirators try to take some pot shots at sub stations. Hopefully the weather is too bad for such mayhem.

And it whiffed.

About 3 weeks ago this area was forecast to have one hell of a rainstorm, with total precipation of 4-8 inches over three days.

That one whiffed, too; we got about half an inch of rain, which isn't even noticeable around here in the winter.

Weather forecasting is like rocket science: inherently difficult.

2 And it whiffed.

If it whiffed, I'm sure the people in Boston, Long Island and Maine don't want to know what a hit is like.

Oh, they know. When I lived in Massachusetts, I got thoroughly sick of hearing "Blizzard of '78" stories.

4 Well, this "whiff" is just about as heavy as that one for the people of Boston.  It's substantially heavier for Long Island, etc.

5 Yeah, it whiffed in NY/NJ/PA (and maybe western MA), but in central MA we got basically the expected 2-3 ft.  It wasn't horizontal from hurricane force winds, though, so that's something.
