This storm brought far less snow and havoc than the one we had back in 2013. Which I chronicled in a series of posts starting here.
Still and all, to hear the wind howling last night you had to wonder if the roof would still be on the house come dawn.
One thing which was damaged by the storm was the Official Tall Ship of Rhode Island, the sloop Providence.

She had been hauled out of the water for the winter. The storm tipped her onto her beam ends and dis-masted her as you can see in the following photos. You can read the full story at that link given for the source of the photos.
It is worth noting that the sloop Providence was the first ship commissioned into the Continental Navy and the first Command of John Paul Jones.
Hopefully they'll get her repaired and back into the water by the spring.
Yes, that sucks that she was damaged.
As for me, the walk is cleared of snow, the driveway is clear and it's back to work tomorrow. So another winter adventure is in the books. Quiet compared to some, I do not have a problem with that. Not at all.

|Hard to tell the amount of fallen snow due to drifting.|
|Winter Wonderland. (Yeah, right.)|
|A couple of inches of snow to the left, a couple of feet of snow to the right.|
|If I had to guess, I'd say we had a foot of snow.|
|Unlike meteorologists, I'm not paid to guess.|
