Year Ends with Incredible Warmth

Year Ends with Incredible Warmth
The year 2015 is wrapping up on an incredibly warm note. Virtually every day in December has averaged above average in Boston, as a strong El Nino and a strong polar vortex combine to send warmth surging into the northeast. The warm weather has been brutal for ski resorts in Northern New England hoping for ...

Finally Feeling Like Fall

Finally Feeling Like Fall
While much of September brought summer-like warmth, the final few days finally started to feel more like Autumn. The arrival of chilly nights spurred along New England’s famous foliage, which until early October, was almost non-existent because of the recent warmth. And on one of those chilly nights, some 300 people celebrated Hingham history at ...

Back on the South Shore

Back on the South Shore
Summer brings some of the best weather of the year to the South Shore, and for the first time in several years, I was able to enjoy all of it. This year brought lots of sun, dry conditions, and warm temperatures to the Boston area. That allowed for many beach days both here, and down ...

Reflecting on Record Storm

Reflecting on Record Storm
The Blizzard of 2013 produced Boston’s fifth largest snowfall on record. The storm resulted in widespread moderate coastal flooding and prolific power outages across Southeastern Massachusetts. Fortunately, Hingham’s power outages were limited. I was quoted in an article written about how Hingham Light kept the power on. Read it here. I was also quoted in ...

Bracing for a Blizzard

Bracing for a Blizzard
It has been years since Southern New England saw a major winter storm, but that is about to change as a likely blizzard barrels towards Boston. Ahead of the storm interest has been quite high. My thoughts on the storm have been used in several Boston Globe and Hingham Patch articles. > Hingham to Declare ...
