I shoveled and didn't die!

I hadn't seen so many downed limbs since Resident Evil!

We had a bunch of snow mixed with rain yesterday and since the trees hadn't had a chance to shed leaves there were snapped branches and trees all over the place.
According to the paper we'd had one snowfall in October within the last 80 years and here are some other more surprising facts:

  • July was the hottest month on record for NJ EVER
  • August was the wettest month on record for NJ EVER
  • January was one of the snowiest months in recent memory

I'm just glad we had power and Domino's delivery. My cousins and I holed up with How I Met Your Mother and had a lovely afternoon with periodic breaks for weather checking.
