October Snow, sounds like an oxymoron to me. Well it did anyway! Two weeks ago word of a nor'easter broke about two days before it hit us. 4-7" of snow were predicted...."No way it will stick to the road" came out of my mouth.
But not much could stop this storm. Only three times in history had our area seen measurable snow in October, the largest total being 2.2". When it was all said and done we ended up with about 12". Being such an early snow following a hot summer, the trees still bore most of their leaves which was a recipe for disaster. We were without power for >30 hours, but the absolute destruction in the aftermath of the storm left some without power for over a week. The roads looked like war zones, trees toppling like toothpicks and wires dangling like spaghetti. I spent all day last Sunday helping a friend clear branches and fallen trees.
