View Full Version : Sounds Like The Cape Got Buried...

Any first hand reports of the blizzard from the mid-cape? I've seen reports of 18 inches in Barbstable with 40 mph winds and total whiteout conditions, wow.

Just a few inches up here in SE NH.

The snow shouldn't last long - looks like a milder period coming for the next week or two starting Wednesday.

Fish On,

We got about 15" of real fluffy snow. I walked the dogs about 11pm before I went to bed, and we had about 2-3", with some real gusty winds. Dogs woke us up at 6:30am and we were buried.
Power is out all over Sandwich. But in Bourne we never lost power at all. Drove arouns a bit this morning and took some photos with the snow cam.

I hate winter, I hate snow, I hate Jan-Mar! I hate this

Just a few inches up here in SE NH.

Just a few inches?

I'm 8 miles from the NH border and 6 miles from the water here in Newbury and we have 14" with drifts over 2'.

My neighbor's parents are in Brewster and they called to tell him they have 18" and it was still snowing this morning.

The Cape did get hit hard. This picture is from Yarmouthport this AM. The roads were not really passable w/o 4WD.

So much for hopes of mild weather and easy fishing this week!!!

I'm in Manchester, NH and we only got about 3"

North Shore got hit pretty good. Here in Beverly, I don't know exactly how much we got, but it was definately right around 12 inches from last night alone. Just got finished shoveling out the driveway and porches and I started at 11 (#$119) The seas out there are real big, theres a solid storm swell inside of SALEM SOUND, and looking at halfway rock with the binoculars, the spray was coming up and over the rock. Big storm.

of having a town boat ramp in Mashpee being plowed by tomorrow night? I had set up a group duck hunt for Wednesday and counted on launching out of there.

Pure guess, but if your talking about the one on the Great River I suspect you could manage to get a boat in. The parking lot is at the end of a town road and tides would clean the ramp itself. What type of ducks are you targeting?

in Waquiot Bay. I'd like to use the ramp off Great Oak Road if possible. Unfortunately I live in Worcester so a quick drive over is out of the question.

2 inches max.

In teaticket (east falmouth), right near the water, i'd estimate we had about 8~10" of heavy snow. but the real story was the wind. it was a blizzard in my book. move inland a few miles and they had over a foot of fluffy stuff. i got stuck once myself. at least the shrink-wrap on the boat stayed on!

Bay is open, landing is usable. Look out buffies!

7 or 8 inches max in Hopkinton (we call those light flurries ;) ). For once, the Cape got the brunt of it.
