The dictionary defines a northeaster as follows: A storm or gale blowing from the northeast. That does not in any way say enough about a Nor’easter. Last Wednesday we here in the tri-state area were just about getting out from under hurricane Sandy when up from the northeast blows that gale. Let me tell you-seven inches of snow and one dark scary night say a lot more about that bugger than the American Heritage. No boring details please. Oh, maybe just a quick retell about me trudging up a long winding hill (my road) to retrieve my car stranded by an earlier road closure. Heart pounding in my chest I walked so fast I had to gulp air that felt hot and cold simultaneously. Headlights glowed against the snow banks and I jumped wagging my $2 flashlight. Finally a car driving in my direction stopped and followed alongside me until I reached my car.
Lord bless us and save us-I mean that was one glorious moment barrel butting out of a snowplowed barricade to get back to my house.
