Catastrophic inland flooding?

40″ of rain?

Forty inches?????

There’s a little metric I like to keep in mind when thinking about rainfall: an inch of rain is equivalent to ten inches of snow.

So… this would be 400 inches of snow. That’s over thirty three feet of snow.

We’re on a pretty steep hill. So, I’m worried about the slope turning liquid and sending us sliding down into the creek. Or, the trees around the house falling over in the saturated soil.


I feel for the people out in the eastern 1/3 of the state, where the ground is basically flat and the winds will be stronger.

    Best of luck, my friend.

    I’m in upstate New York at the moment, heading for Pittsburgh on Thursday, so I’ll be a little wet too in empathy with you.
