Yesterday was a mess but fortunately, most of the precipitation was already ice before hitting the ground. That saved us from more power outages than what there were. I measured about 1.5 inches of ice on my snow board this morning, and my rain gauge had to be thawed out with a hair dryer. There was 0.74″ melted in my gauge which gave us well over two inches of precip over the past two days. Flood warnings remain in effect for today and NOAA is saying that more freezing rain is a slight possibility tonight. State Police were warning everyone to stay home unless they absolutely had to go out.
