So far so good in 2019, JR just got himself his first good winter storm. The storm that made landfall here last night whipped us really bad tonight with her tail end. The winds are way worse now, up to 31 m/s in the gusts from the North with wave height exceeding 7 meters out at sea. There's some snow accumulation from what I can see, not much, but I wouldn't be driving.

Power's been out three times already

I love this wild weather, we haven't had a good blizzard in many years. This one wasn't very good though, it didn't provide as much snow as they promised.

Well we're still here, but it was pretty wild. Historic storm actually, never before have they measured this strong wind in Finland; sustained average wind of 32.5 m/s (72.7 mph) with gusts up to 42 m/s (94 mph). Average wave height was measured at 7.9 meters, which is also a new record damned.gif

damned.gif Unbelievable wind speed. Did you get any damage? The temp here has been a little over freezing to a little under and it's a sleet, snow and rain mixture that becomes dangerous when the temperature drops below freezing.

Hi Strigoi! hug.gif Happy new year! No damage as far as we know, but we haven't been outside to inspect yet. I imagine we'll see some fallen trees and such.

Hmmm...wonder if the adage 'In like a lion, out like a lamb' is the 2019 prediction?

Hope your neighborhood survived with minimal damage. hug.gif

Happy New Year to ya'll! cheers.gif

Surprisingly little damage as far as we walked, only one broken tree. Tons of twigs and stuff of course, but I've seen worse. Other places on the coast got it bad, we're a couple of miles from the sea.

Hi Octo, so it appears that climate is indeed changing to a more violent manner.
