That was the 4th winter Nor'eastern storm in about 8 weeks for them. Crazy! And nothing to LYAO about. (I doubt they were laughing about our floods)Though they are usually prepared, they are probably tired of it and running out of supplies. Also the 4th time commerce stopped moving for a day or two. that's when things started to get serious.
OTOH, the coming local area rainstorm tonight and tomorrow is welcome after a month long dry spell.
