Hey Joey!

Getting frosty out here in the Lanesville woods. Footage is from about 11:30, in the area around Vernon’s pit.  Pretty sheltered in the trees with knee deep drifts. Howling wind up on the cliffs above the quarry.

Any idea how Joe made out with Nova Kane? Looked rough.

Hope y’all are staying warm out there.

Cheers!

Zach Dahlmer

Gloucester, MA 10-11am white out walk. snapshots and video clips: Naomi Drive. Rockport Road. Salt Island Road. Brier Neck. Good Harbor Beach Inn. Good Harbor Beach. Thacher Road.


White out walk. Strong winds on the coast are keeping the snow inches down, and everywhere swaths of bare ground alternate with drifts ankle high to mid thigh. Snow walls are building at intersections as the busy plows stay ahead of this heavy winter battering.

Guess where?

Wind across sand and street feels like this (5 sec clips)

Sanderlings, winter shorebirds, stand their ground feeding in fierce winds (20 sec)

Birds are tinier than the seaweed gusting past.

sanderlings might be easier to spot in this one

Gloucester DPW has been by at least twice since 5am. The wind is swirling in all directions so the accumulation is blasted from surfaces.

May be an image of road, snow and text that says 'CROWD DON'T THE PLOW! Allow six car lengths behind an operating snow plow Never travel next to a plow truck, and never try to pass several trucks plowing side by side in a "plow train." Safely move as far away from the centerline as possible when approaching a snow plow head on. Stay alert! Slow-moving snow plows can be obscured by blowing snow.'

May be an image of text that says 'With the snow and astronomical tides anticipated this weekend, storm drains that are not cleared can lead to streets flooding. Our crews will be working but residents can help by clearing out storm drains near their homes so melting snow and rain can make it into our storm water system instead of staying on streets. Even just a shovel-width of space allows the drains to function and prevent street flooding'
