Spring Nor'Easter Preparations

The weather has been balmy for a week, but this is New England and it's early spring, so we're prepared for the worst while hoping for the best. Yesterday the skies were sunny and the air was warm. That all changed by the end of the day when cooler air and rain moved into the area. We need rain, so I'm not complaining. But we don't need floods here in south central Vermont, and we don't need WIND.

Tonight's forecast warns of wind gusts near 50 mph plus as much if not more rainfall as yesterday (2.5").

Irene did horrendous damage to Vermont last August. We're hoping and praying this next 48 hours of weather-maker is not destructive.
