Transition from Sandy to Nor'easter

Transition - From Sandy to Nor'easter is a short clip showing the two weather systems CT experienced from Oct. 29 - Nov. 8 as seen from the yard of yours truly. Note: Hurricanes and Nor'easters, prior to this year, have never been considered a package deal, ever. Outside of losing power for 6+ days and web connects for 11, our luck held out relatively well (Fairfield not withstanding) owing to the fact Sandy passed well south of us and rains that usually accompany huge storms such as this were absent, thus sparing CT and NE from the enormous devastation wrought upon NY and NJ from the perfect storm circa 2012. 

When looking at this video, one sees the very beginning of the truly destructive power of global warming and what it means for mankind as we move further into the 21st century, particularly when looking at the predictions scientists are making regarding sea level rise.

Something to consider don't you think?

Redding got 8"-10" of snow on the Nov Nor'easter but no loss of power, thank god.
