Social Media and the Socialization of the Weather!

My Latest article on Hubpages explores how social media has socialized many aspects of how we receive, report and predict the weather!  From Twitter to Instagram, social media has made it possible for a new weather community to exist! So check out this interesting read at:

Blizzard 2013!! Nemo hit hard in Milford, CT

Even though Boston was suppose to be hit the hardest in last week's blizzard, south central CT was surprised to become the bullseye of the storm!  An official report of 38 inches of snow in my hometown of Milford, CT! and even more just north of us in Hamden, CT of 40 inches (We even made ABC News and we're at the top of the list!)!  Although the snow on the ground matches that of the snowy January of 2011, it didn't come in one night like this blizzard! Like storms of the past I got my camera out and took some amazing photos of the show! Check them out at WxEdge:

It's day 3 and we have yet to see a plow come up our street!!  So yesterday (Sunday) afternoon the neighbors banned together to make a path in the street.  They used snow blowers and shovels to make their way to the main road off the development!  I took some photos of this in between helping and also wrote an article on WxEdge!  

I still can't believe the amount of snow we got!  It's being compared to the great Blizzards of 1978 and 1888!!  Storms that I read about throughout my childhood, never really expecting to experience it!  PS there's a possible snow storm for Wednesday night and Saturday night!  This would be insane because roads won't even be plowed till Wednesday and then covered again that night!  Plus kids have been out of school since last Friday and may not go back till this Friday!! Goodbye winter and spring break!

Blizzard Warning! Update

The National Weather service updated accumulation for the Blizzard warning to 20-36, yes 36 inches of snow!!! This is crazy, granted I'm not sure we will get to 36 inches in my town but definitely close in on 2 feet!!

Crazy Computer Models

These were from the other day showing the Blizzard I'm expecting today here in CT. When these came out they were the outliers (which means one of the extreme solutions) but looks like it might come true! They show snow accumulations, which show over two feet!!
