- Nature's Nightmares March 26
A few days ago, the media elite sounded the alarms, warning of a Nor'easter bomb' that was on a collision course with major cities dotting the Northeast. The original forecast called for several inches of snow, blustery winds, and an all-around mood ruiner set to ring in the first full week of spring.
Well, good news! The massive storm veered into the ocean, with the worst of it missing Washington D.C., New York, and Boston. But, bad news! It had to go somewhere. So, the people of Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, and eastern Canada are dealing with hurricane force winds, several feet of snow, and white-out conditions. The coastal storm is giving weather nerds "meteorological eye-candy for those not in the direct path."
Just imagine if this storm was 500 miles west. We owe you one, Canada. --Jordan Valinsky
