October Snow Storm In Connecticut

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Above are just a couple of picture to show the amount of snow that we received here in Middletown Connecticut this past Saturday.  We had about 8" of snow, but parts north of us got over 20" which is unheard of around here this time of the year.

I can only remember one other time in my life time that we got a significant amount of snow in October, and that was in October of 1978, but even though it was a significant amount of snow in 1978, it was not as much as we just got.  This snow storm would rival most of the snow storms that we get during the peak of Winter.  I hope that this is not an indication of the type of Winter that we are going to have, but it is not what I would consider a good start. 

This snow storm created more damage than any other that I can remember.  The damage was so extensive that 7 days late as much as 90% of the residence of some towns are still without power, and I are not talking about small rural towns, I am talking about towns like Farmington, and West Hartford. 

CL&P is saying that 99% of Connecticut will have power back by Sunday night, but something tells me that they will fall far short of that goal.  This is a time for those of us that have had our power restored need to reach out to those that are still without, and offer a warm place to sleep, as well as a warm/hot shower.

I don't care what anyone says, October snow storms in Connecticut or Northern Virginia are wierd. 

Glad you finally got some relief. 

I was without power a few years ago, Hurricane Isabel, for 4 days.  It was rough.

George, I must admit that I am impressed with the response of our Governor.  He really has tried to ba visable and attentive.  It is truly a mess. Looks like they are going to make that goal on Sunday at midnight.

We apparently had 12 inches of snow here, and had no power through Wednesday night, but since we now have a generator, we did not suffer much. This year has been a very tough year for all of CT, but we luckily made the decision last year to purchase a generator. I doubt that you could find a used one around here this year! Hope you have power now, George!

George -- Glad your power is restored.  I still cannot believe how many are without. I agree that tomorrow's deadline will be an impossibility. There are just too many still without.

George, look at all that beautiful white stuff...I'm sure you weren't thinking so kindly of it.  I also remember a big snow storm in Chicago back in '78...I don't remember loosing power then.
