It should be less of a surprise to know that a Tropical Storm Watch is now in effect. These conditions are all but identical to a typical Nor’ Easter though not always as agreeable when it comes to shoveling. One similar attribute is that the conditions are speculated to occur within 48 hours the initial heads up. I’ve been filing and fulfilling requests for most of the day in regards to herding, chairs, grills and the occasional yard gnome and again, if anyone has any concerns, letting me know sooner rather than waiting on your local weather editor to start breathing into a paper bag is best. Locals would suggest that it’s going to get wicked windy and while I don’t suspect we’ll have too many professional weather scouts standing on jetties compelling mere mortals to stay indoors, if there’s anything I can do from a proactive position it would certainly dovetail with my passion for drama free days.
