It is a good thing I don’t get writer’s block often but thanks to our weather there is always something to write about. Did you get a opportunity to see the fresh snow on Silver Star Monday? Taking a close look, it was adhered tightly to the forest trees up there. Reminded me of flocked Christmas trees.
A powerful storm with straight-line winds and possible tornadoes tore roofs off factories, ripped away storefronts and destroyed homes across Indiana, Ohio and into Pennsylvania, and on Monday, the National Weather Service planned to survey some of the damage.
Well, November sure got off to a cold start weather-wise, at least for most of western Washington. Snow fell Thursday in Bellingham and a few inches were on the ground early Friday morning. At one time Thursday night, they had a northeast wind blowing down the Fraser River Canyon of 40 mph, 32 degrees and moderate snow. Winter!
PORTLAND, Maine — More than 100,000 homes and businesses remained without electricity for a fifth day Thursday after a powerful storm blew down thousands of trees, toppled power lines and left more than half of Maine’s residents in the dark.
We survived yet another month of weather in October and now we look toward a new month of surprises in November. Halloween was excellent weather for trick-or-treating and other outdoor events. Remember that one.
PORTLAND, Maine — Drought conditions, recent rainfall and an unusual storm path in Maine may have contributed to the large numbers of trees that toppled during a storm that walloped the Northeast this week, officials said.
PORTLAND, Maine — Bolstered by out-of-state reinforcements, utility crews scrambled to restore power throughout New England on Tuesday, a day after gusts topping 80 mph caused widespread power outages and forced many communities to postpone Halloween festivities.
Our last day in October will be sunny and mild with highs a bit above the normal 58 degrees. Great dry weather for trick-or-treating tonight, no plastic garbage bags or umbrellas needed. Mark this one in your memory banks.
HARTFORD, Conn. — A severe storm packing hurricane-force wind gusts and soaking rain swept through the Northeast early Monday, knocking out power for nearly 1.5 million homes and businesses and forcing hundreds schools to close in New England.
Chalk up yet another gorgeous day Saturday with clear, sunny skies and 70-degree weather! We have had eight days at 70 degrees or higher this month, and I believe Saturday was our last day of reaching 70. With cooler weather and the new month of November settling in mid-week, the odds do not favor highs in the 70s.
About the only places I could find out of the regular reporting stations Wednesday with measurable rain were Astoria, Ore., Long Beach and Hoquiam along the coast. Otherwise, we just saw cloudy skies as a weak system slid by to our north.
