First and foremost, thank you from the bottom of my heart to those who use this link as a source of information as two phones are never enough. Second, apologizes for the delay as I am also a victim of a power outage and needed to sleuth around and find a network. We’ve had strong winds since last night which makes it difficult to get a handle on actual totals but I would put them around 5”-6”. From our findings and NStar’s outage map, Orleans and Eastham is about 50/50 in terms of those homes with and without power. As mentioned earlier, everyone’s heat was dialed up on Thursday and Friday in anticipation of these outages. Understanding that network weather reporters insist that we are in fact on the threshold of Armageddon, we’re actually on Cape Cod during a classic nor easter. On that score 12”-18” snow totals are valid on the Cape; they can be found in Falmouth. The top recorded gusts, that have change three times for the lower were 84 mph at the Hyannis airport i.e. unobstructed. The median interior temperature right now is about 52 degrees. Several homes were checked for this very reason. That said, today’s rounds are merely look and see efforts aimed more at any exterior issues. We are in no immediate danger of freeze ups based on the preventative measures taken late Thursday and Friday. If you have called or sent a text this morning, I will do my best to get back to you shortly.
