Ugh, I managed to have no trees down during Sandy (my house is surrounded by trees and I've had issues before)... but the ice storm last year brought down several huge branches that caused damage to my car and house. Hope there weren't any weakened by Sandy that are waiting to fall due to heavy snow.

It's the Weather Channel's new stupid conceit. They names are not official (unlike hurricanes, which are officially named by the National Hurricane Center) and are entirely a publicity stunt by TWC.

Thanks, it was messy but I just drove carefully. It was kind of cool seeing a big plane appearing out of a low cloud in front of me on the Turnpike. Also, stopped at the Thomas Edison rest stop, where last week the gas lines were backed up the ramps onto the Turnpike itself. There were two cars ahead of me.

Then I continued on my merry way and finally made it home to find that my power is out again.

Power went out on my block one hour ago. Deja'vu. Most of the town seems to be ok though. Now up north trying to get to my uncle's driveway in this snow. Whee.... o_o.

My power came back on. I flipped on my front porch light and said WHOA. Lots more snow since I came home.

I found out tonight that there are. Well, it was more than a branch. A large multi branched section fell off of the neighbor's massive oak taking out two fence panels and impressively, takes up a substantial portion of my side yard. Thankfully, it didn't hit the house.

PSEG is reporting 120,000 customers without power. Among them 40,000 customers that lost power due to the current storm after their power was restored in the aftermath of Sandy.

And then the power went out again and stayed out until about 5:20 this morning. I was in the shower, with the candles in the bathroom burning, of course, my coffee, which is water and scoops of coffee mixed together, simmering on the stove top, and I heard the beep beep beep that my stove makes (the timer thing) when the power comes back on. I quickly plugged in my phone, expecting the power to go back out right away, but it was still on at 6:30 when I left the house.

Had about six inches of snow on my car. I have to say, it was beautiful driving up the Parkway. Very scenic with the snow on the branches of the trees and on the marsh grasses.

Hope to hell it all melts by the time I go home, too.

thank god, you've been through enough. we didn't get much snow in NW Jersey (about 1.5 by me). it is pretty though. I think a lot will be melted by the time you come home.

hopefully this is IT!
