Thanks for posting that. We have relatives in Fort Myers. From the reports, it looks like they didn’t likely take a hit, but I just sent them a message to ask.

Haven't seen a plow on Crystal Drive. I think that they are hoping the rain will take care of everything.

drove from DC out to Gainesville around 2:45 or so. Main roads were slow and OK, neighborhood wasn't touched. We saw a few accidents on 66, including one involving a black Mercedes that had sped past us a few minutes earlier.

We went to the Van Gogh experience in DC and loved it.

There’s a similar one on the Sistine chapel opening in Tyson’s on January 28

Interesting 2.5 mile walk home from the Caps game - started as dry snow, then wet cement, then sleet, then rain, all in the space of an hour and change.

sticky stuff that plasters you.  Don't argue with Ali. He's Canadian and has several hundred phrases for types of winter weather.

I probably should have used the correct technical term, "walrus puke"

the wxrisk guy says models are showing another big mid-atlantic winter storm January 29-30, but way too soon to have much confidence.

brother looks like he'll get close to 2 feet out of that.  Hope he keeps his power.  When my Dad moved in with him (actually even before that), I had said it would be good if they had bought a generator, which he would have paid for.  For some reason, they never took Dad / Me up on it.  I've been there when they lost power or just heat.  Not pretty.

You know how you always hear about Plaquemines and Calcasieu parishes in Louisiana, as well as Galveston and Port Arthur, when you get a storm in the gulf?  Well, the equivalent for nor'easters is Scituate, a lovely town with a fishing harbor and coastal residences on a sandbar.

Astronomical high tide coinciding with a 1'-3' storm surge. I'm thinking Long Wharf in Boston might also be another place you'll see photos from.
