The East quiets down, The West gets active

Good morning all.

Well, I have never been more glad that:  It’s Friday, AND the weather is QUIET across the Northeast.  Phew!  It’s been a challenging few weeks for us.  My family lost power during hurricane Sandy,  then it came back on for a few days and now it’s out again after the Nor’easter.  Nights have been cold, but we’re doing OK.   I’m just hoping it comes back soon.   It’s been a slow recovery, and hundreds of thousands are still without power.  Many don’t have homes and are just trying to figure out how to rebuild their houses and their livelihoods.  Keep them in your prayers .

So let’s talk about this record breaking Nor’easter one final time.  Here are some of the latest snow totals and wind gusts from yesterday:

As mentioned, a warm up and quieter weather is in the forecast for the weekend.

Across the West an impressive winter storm will bring rain, wind, snow and blizzard conditions over the Rockies.  Snow will also pile up over the Sierra, the Wasatch and Colorado Rockies:

The Central U.s will be quiet, however some of the energy across the west could produce severe weather this weekend from the southern Plains up into the Midwest.  We’ll of course keep you up to date on this story over the next few days.

Ok.  I am going to rest up this weekend and try to get some energy back.  Can’t wait to spend some time with my family.  I hope you will too!
