Snowtober Hits Hard: 11 Deaths, Millions Of Outages & The Canceling Of Halloween

| Filed under: Sad Sad

We don't know what Mother Nature's problem is, but she is taking it on the North East pretty hard!

This weekend saw a record nor'easter hit every state from Maryland to Maine, with some parts of the area reportedly getting as much as 30 inches of wet, heavy snow. The damage done by the irregular weather is the blame of at least 11 deaths and Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and parts of New York have all declared states of emergency.

These states have been hit the worst with power outages, with many people reportedly in danger of being without power for an entire week! Thankfully, city officials across the board are doing everything they can to restore heat to these poor people, calling in crews from as far as Michigan and Canada to come in and help the situation.

But its an especially hard day for the kiddies. While many schools have canceled classes for the day - the earliest snow day in many district's history - the inclement weather also means that many will have to go without trick-or-treating this year.

Sad! But at least they will be safe. It would be too treacherous to let the little ghouls and goblins venture out in such conditions. Plus, nice thing about Halloween is, there is always next year … and you can eat all the candy you Mom bought for the other kids! Bright side? Maybe?

Our thoughts are with everyone back East and we hope things improve soon. We especially want to offer condolences to the folks who have lost family and friends due to the storm. So sad.

    The town I live in New York only got a dusting but my aunt drove my cousin and her friends through that shit for a concert in Connecticut. She said that the biggest headaches were the people on the road. Thinking of everyone out there!

    What ever happened to Al Gore and all those global warming alarmist. Ever since we found out the 'scientists' were on the take and falsifying data the liberal media has been awful quiet.

    Hi all! We are in Western Mass, hit pretty hard. CT got it worse though. Here's what's happening… Gas stations out of gas, 40 min long lines when they get it, people fighting… grocery stores have no fresh food, just canned, everyone's food has rotted. Power is out in many towns, some 100%, with no promise of power til Sat night, no phones, nothing. Some people without water…Water lines breaking, fires in homes trying to heat up on the 14 degree nights, people dying from CO trying to heat their homes, dying from power lines….Spfld schools cancelled the whole week. People trapped in neighborhoods from downed lines, trees fallen like crazy. WMECO says worst ever in New England. No more generators around - we are very, very cold!!! So, this year so far Western Mass got… a tornado, a hurricane, micro bursts, an earthquake, a devastating October snowstorm… Thanks Mother Nature. Anyone got property down south I can look into? I think I've had enough!
