As this blog takes shape, many here in the Maine Lakes Region will be inconvenienced Monday morning it appears from the weather forecasts. There is a winter storm approaching – this from the west not coming up the coast from the south – and it’s easy to see to anyone who glanced at or is watching the Buffalo Bills football game to see that this storm has some passion, at least where it is at the moment early Sunday afternoon. A quick glance at the radar and you will see a quarter of the northern USA blanketed by this weather system. Predictions are for the snow to start late Sunday night / early Monday morning here in our Maine Lakes Region. A key question for the weathermen is all about the temperature. This storm is predicted to start overnight and then through mid morning dump some impressive snow amounts – averages appear to be in the 6″ ranges – however many are predicting that the temperature will soon approach 32° and there are fears of sleet, ice, freezing rain and possibly rain before this storm system eases up after noon tomorrow so it looks like an interesting Monday. If you have a plow guy remember to position things accordingly on your property, and there are many students in the northeast – and many teachers too – who are hoping for “that call” and notice to be posted in their school system so they don’t have to get out of bed as early as usual.
There is no doubt how blessed we have been this season. Many years we have experienced significant snow and winter weather starting on or before Halloween, and we are six solid weeks beyond that timeframe right now. Everyone here at Anne Plummer & Associates wishes you and yours a very safe first real winter storm as we rapidly approach the holidays and just a bit more than two weeks away now, is 2017. Make it a great week!
