The Blizzard of 2015 - Will The Outer Cape Get Hammered?

Snowmageddon 2015. Some are likening the blizzard we are slated to get to the famous 'Blizzard of 1978', that wreaked havoc on much of Cape Cod, including wiping out Henry Beston's Outermost House. We are told that before noon-time tomorrow we'll be getting 6 - 12 (some sources say 24) inches of snow on the Outer Cape. The good news for us is that we aren't getting the 30 inches that'll likely fall on Boston and its closest suburbs. Yikes!

The 'real' problem might well be wind gusts - potentially up to 75 mph, hurricane strength. These winds will likely cause widespread power outages. We spent much of today preparing for the winds and loss of power. Flashlights, oil lamps, batteries, etc. We're ready.

If I have power you can check back tomorrow for an update.
