fun in the north east

Word on the street (read: every radio station and weather channel) says we're getting a Nor'easter this weekend, starting today.

For those of you who don't live in the North East (Nor'east), there are two different types of Nor'easters:

1. below 32 degrees: this Nor'easter brings wind that burns your face, feet of snow, five foot snow drifts, back-breaking shoveling, and a day off from work.

2. above 32 degrees: this Nor'easter (the kind we'll be experiencing) brings howling winds, sideways rain, leaf tornadoes, clogged gutters and flooded basements.

I'll be breaking out my bright orange wellies tonight – and keeping my fingers crossed that my basement makes it through the next 4 days dry!

Winter or whatever this is - she is a bitch! Fingers crossed KK that you do not have to put your wellies on and save your basement! Good weather ju ju being sent you way!

Eek! It's a strange autumn for sure. Good luck.

I am apparently the last person in New England to hear the weather forecast-- a coworker told me about it just before I read your post. I'm not happy about a Nor'easter in October!

Just popping over to say thank you for the tip about using a wet vac to empty our washing machine. And I'm wondering if you fixed yours or got a new one. Ours seems to have power, but the agitator won't turn, so I'm not sure if it's worth trying to save.

Wow, like FunnyKat, I didn't know about this either. Just thought some rain was coming our way.

Glad I have a sump pump.
