I live in the Northeast, when did this happen? It's been windy and it rained last night.  :027:
 I raked leaves today and I did notice that the top of one of my trash barrels blew off. Was that it?

Well if you put "bomb" in the title people get nervous. In the Northeast, come wintertime, it's the term "Nor'easter" that sets people on edge. Especially on the coast.
According to the Farmers Almanac, this winter is supposed to be a doozie. They're already calling it the "Polarcoaster".  :138:

Flew out of Boston Logan just before this came in, a little turbulance but no big deal. Looks like it blew the roof off one of the Delta hangers a short while later so maybe got away just in time !

Logan had a 70mph wind gusts. That roof is made of fabric. Logan is only a few miles from my house as the crow flies.
There was more damage I found out in Glaucester Ma, north of Boston, on the ocean. They had boats sink at the docks and maydays. The Coast Guard had a busy day.

Winter forecasting is terrible here, only job you can be wrong yet still be employed. The "better get your bread + milk"  stock up BS (not like anyone lives 100 miles away from 15 convenience / grocery stores) with "2 feet by late afternoon turns into a mere 3 inches"...  Nor'Easter, haven't had a real one in a few of years- maybe 2020.
I love a good snow fall in Central NY, steady add of inches and colder temps just makes it another great season- keeps my sleds on local trails and the groomer running.

Farmer's almanac, more folklore.... seen any solid black woolly bear caterpillars yet?

No but I've seen a bunch of brown/black striped ones. What does that mean?
I have a friend in Sebago Lake, Maine with a bunch of sleds. Last couple of years he's had to go to Jackman for good snow.
