    We got pummeled today, with 7-to-14-inch drifts coming from the wrong direction that local-doppler was showing. Weird. And temps will be in a downward-spiral for 24 more hours. Low of -8, possibly.

    We received only about two inches here.

    Unfortunately, it rained right after and then froze an dthe it got windy. I lost limbs on several trees (fortunately somewhat small). Roads through adjoining towns, that have lots of trees on the sides of them didn't make out that well. Many towns lost partially or totally lost electricity. I was lucky.

    The temperatures are expected to stay in the teens. The wind has calmed down.

    CT Power Outages Persist Into Monday

    Power outages continue to persist in Connecticut after icy power lines and tree branches wreaked havoc with the electric system across the state. There were about 11,000 power outages as of 3 p.m. Monday as temperatures hit the single digits.

    There are about 4,350 United Illuminating customers without power. Of that around 2,000 outages are in Hamden. For Eversource there were around 6,500 outages.

    Downed trees and power lines were to blame for the outages. An Eversource worker was killed by a falling tree Sunday afternoon.

    UI expected to restore power to nearly all customers by midnight. As of Monday afternoon they had restored power to 23,000 customers and addressed hundreds of downed wires and other safety issues. About half of outages still affecting customers Monday morning occurred after 5 p.m. Sunday.

    So far this winter we have had a good system, we send the snow to Missouri and then go on about our business.

    Hey, not such a good system. We'll let you have the rest of it this winter.

    We lucked out this weekend, only got an inch this time. The previous weekend we were graced with almost a foot. I hate snow!!!! But maybe not so much since we've retired. We just stock up with groceries and wait for it to be cleared and/or melt.

    We got about 5 inches on Saturday, then the temps plummeted Sunday and Monday. Today it's about 40 degrees and raining.

    On the up side, I was able to wash my winter jacket and hang it up so it'll be dry tomorrow, and just wore my raincoat today with a warm sweater underneath. Michigan has crazy weather.

    There was some rain hitting the windows last night here in DFW, and temps were just about low enough, but it did not generate enough snow or ice to shut the city down (a quarter inch would suffice)
