New Englanders are known for skepticism, and for forging ahead regardless of the weather report. More often than not the hype about the weather is just hype, but not this time.
I made my drive to Providence on Tuesday, skeptical to the usual wolf-cryers, listening selectively to the oft-said Northeasterner advisement "It's only the back roads the highways are fine". This time it was worse than they predicted, I spent about 9 and a half hours in my car. I was very lucky. The flooding is severe and widespread, both Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island were hit very hard. My heart goes out to all of my friends who are dealing with this, stay well and please do call.
