4, 3, 2, 1...Hurricane Earl Has Counted Down to a Tropical Storm

Sharon, MA - A few days back people around here were talking about getting ready for Hurricane Earl. Some people called in tree services to take down branches and trees that they thought could come down in a storm. Others stocked up on bottled water and batteries. With the memory of April's severe flooding clearly on people's minds, it's a big relief to learn that Hurricane Earl has been down-graded to a tropical storm. Hurricane Earl

In 1991, the last hurricane to strike New England was Hurricane Bob. I remember seeing massive trees ripped out at their roots and tossed on the street like toothpicks. Hurricane Bob came ashore as a category 2 hurricane and caused over $2.8 billion dollars in damage. Very sadly, 18 people died in that hurricane.

More recently, in August 2006, a dorecho...or microburst, hit the Town of Sharon leaving a path across town of large trees snapped near their bases or uprooted entirely. Some trees were thrust like spears through the roofs of homes and cars. A dorecho is the name given to severe straight line winds, rather than the spinning wind of a tornado. Did you ever hear that name before?

In all parts of the world people suffer from the results of severe weather. Some areas are hit much more frequently than others. It's always a huge relief when the anticipated course of a storm changes direction to avoid towns and cities. Residents along the northern East Coast of the U.S. are worrying a little less today about severe damage. 

In Sharon, MA we are expecting a good downpour which will actually help us as we are still recovering from a water shortage from much of the summer.

Wishing you all a safe and quiet Labor Day weekend!
