As many of you know, starting Monday night we will be facing what could be a 1 in 50 year storm. This is significant, as we have not seen a coastal storm this size since the storms of 1991 and 1992.
In comparison, Nemo, the blizzard of 2013 was roughly a 1 in 25 year storm.
Please be safe. Listen to bulletins issued by local authorities. If you see storm damage or experience storm damage, email us photos and let us know if you would like us to share them as we are always trying to document storms for our records.
We will update you towards the end of the storm.
