    Welcome to the group, I'm in NePa. and still wonder why I stay here this far north. Winters last forever, everything hurts. Enough already.
    Power outages predicted for this weekend when that cyclone hits. Sounds like a good time!

    The only thing that bothers me are the dead ash trees in the power lines and along the roads. They'll start dropping like tooth picks in this wind.

    They should pay people to cut them down. When I used to burn wood, I loved to find Ash and Locust trees that needed to be cut down. Great wood to split and burn. Power companies don't seem too interested in maintaining their lines though.

    We have an acre cut out of about 350 acres of watershed property, great spot,lots of wildlife, But, house & lot surrounded by 60 to 80 ft. Pines, becomes a little worrisome in these winds, they are not strong trees & sway like crazy.

    PennDot has a lot of the dead ash tree marked for cutting along the roads but that's a low priority for them. The power company had a crew come through and trim the power lines a couple yrs ago BUT, if the tree wasn't in the power line right away, they didn't touch it, make perfect sense :eek:.

    I have a lot of both, but most the ash are dead now, some of the young ones may survive. All of my locust trees had brown leaves all last summer, not to sure what's going on with them. A neighbor had the forester look at his locust trees but didn't get a answer as to what's happening with them.
    Those big ole pine trees are scary when they start swaying an dropping branches.

    We only got around 3-4 inches of snow but it was snowing & blowing all day, that wind srue did howl at times.. There was some spotty outages around us but I never lost power this time. Not so sure how our New England friends made out, but I didn't even have to plow any snow this time :).
    Saw two deer feedin outside the window @ 1 am last night in the moon light.

    We had strong wind snow showers ,lost a few slate off my roof as they went about 30yd before landing out by my truck . I live on top a hill an I watched the top of telephone poles rocking back and fourth about a foot an the wires in front of my home moving a few feet in all directions . Never lost juice or any trees an the winds still blowing hard here.

    Strong winds & crazy gusts for hrs, had a dead pine fall & smash my blind in back if property, a good size limb came down in front yard, luckily no damage .rain & sleet, no accumulation .never lost power, coulda been worse. There's a car on next street over with telephone down the center of it,cops have been sitting there with lights going since 8am. May have been a fatality.

    Just saw on the local news, looks like 20,000+ people with out power in the Poconos. Trees down on power lines everywhere, PPL is recalling two crews from Puerto Rico.
    Last March when we lost power for a week a local MicroTel gave us a room for $50 for a night, The Hot shower was worth every penny.

    I have a foot of snow in my yard where I shoot, 16* this morning but suppose to hit 41* today.
    I'm just thankful at least it's not like East Glacier, MT where it's 78" of snow. :D Many places buried up to the roofs.

    Wow, that's not pretty.
    Today's storm is hyped to the max here in NePa, the state had declared a state of emergency, blah blah blah.
