Friday morning’s weatherman said he wouldn’t be surprised to see old fashion liquid barometers overflow, the barometric pressure was going to be that low.
The Feb. 7 storm was presaged all morning by dark, smoky skies and wind whipping all around. There were trees and limbs down throughout the three Silver Lake towns, but it seems that Plympton got the worst of it.
Capt. John Sjostedt said that his department answered 18 storm-related calls.
Trees were twisted 10-20 feet high, and snapped like twigs, falling everywhere. Elm Street seems to have suffered a microburst.
Eversource had its work cut out for them and tree crews were kept busy.
