A January 2022 Nor'Easter

Temperatures here in the Northeast are expected to reach only 30-degrees Fahrenheit today, but rise to the mid-40s by week's end, hopefully melting a good portion of the snow from the year's first nor'easter.

This latest storm dropped about 10-inches of white powder over my Bedford, New York farm with snow drifts as high as two-and-a-half feet. Officials called it a “bomb cyclone” which occurs when air pressure drops and the storm rapidly intensifies. This one strengthened very quickly, bringing driving snow, punishing winds, and whiteout conditions as it moved up the east coast. The winter weather system crippled much of the region, but it left a beautiful coating of white across the landscape.
