1st Snow of the Season.. Noreaster Athena....11-7-12

1 week after SANDY broke the Tri-state area .. a Nasty Nor-easter taking a similar path will dump Rain - Snaw and more WIND to 60mph..

I hope we can hold out after all the trees have been weakened..

1st named Snow storm ever : ATHENA

Power stayed on for us -- but 200,000 lost it again..

6" of snow by us...it was predicted to be only rain and less than .25"
Well thay got Sandy right..50/50

Glad I left work an hour
