Double Whammy Nor'easters in Less Than A Week in Delaware County PA

Cardinal In Snow In Delaware County PAToday Delaware County got hit by another Nor'easter Quinn, just five days after Nor'easter Riley hit the area last Friday. This storm is packed with wet heavy snow and there was a period where it was snowing 2-3 inches an hour. So far we have close to 10 inches. The good news as I write, is the storm is moving out of the area since the last weather report said snow had stopped in Wilmington Delaware which is roughly 15 miles from here.

 

We did our first round of shoveling after the first round of snow stopped mid morning. We will have to go out again to tackle the remaining snow, just to ensure the sidewalk is clear and a path to our car is made.

 

Bird Feeder in DelcoI filled the bird feeder last night and the birds have been feeding and fighting for space all through the storm. Since the seeds cover up quickly with snow around the base of the feeder, I end up throwing out bread pieces mixed with loose seed so they can feed easier.

 

Watching the snow fall is still a wonder to me, but I know it is such an inconvenience to many and can be deadly. Many people who lost power with the first storm Riley are still without power and now this storm has created more outages.

 

Snow In Delaware County PA 2018Delaware County is along the I-95 corridor where a storm can go either way. Sometimes the storms stay to our north or hug the Jersey shore south and east of us, which is good for us, but these last two storms seemed to ride up I-95 and hit us real hard.  

 

The good thing is freezing temperatures are not going to be a factor during the daytime hours, mostly in the 40's for the next few days.  It is the nighttime hours that people need to be very careful with ice.  I am looking forward to the true winter thaw and seeing my crocuses, tulips and daffodils again that are now under a pile of snow!
