Hey, one year there was a Halloween Blizzard and I was without power for a week.

 

Here in Foxboro, maybe 2-3 inches on trees, grass, and cold surfaces, perhaps an inch on my car, just a bit around the edges of walkways and driveways.

Was that Sandy in 2013? I recall that storm too but don't remember if it was the same.

2011 Halloween storm. I was on call for several small drinking water systems. When the power started going out, I started getting alarms from all over during the heat of the storm. 

Driving through Boxborough on back roads, trees and big branches started coming down on the road. At one point my way forward was blocked so I turned around only to find my way back was blocked. I had to get out and drag a huge branch aside just enough to squeeze past. The whole time I was out of the truck big branches were falling in the woods in big avalanches of snow. I seriously thought one was gonna fall on me.

 

One thing I remember about that storm was that a couple of the accounts ran out of fuel for the generators that ran their neighborhood well pump. The residents had home generators for their houses but no drinking water, showers or toilet flushing. 

The fuel companies couldn't keep up and they went days without water.

Yep. Halloween 2011 was a biggun. Strong and highly anomalous October noreaster dumped huge snows along the interior northeast, whose trees were still in full leaf. Although unlike today, strong NE winds funneled warm marine air into coastal areas that kept snow totals way down there.

Inland, the biggest snows came in Peru, Massachusetts: 32".

Three million electric customers lost power in the storm, many for extended periods.
