Hundreds of thousands of people in the Northeast remain without electricity after an early Nor’Easter dumped heavy snow that downed trees and power lines on Sept. 29. Thankfully, temperatures have increased and no further precipitation is expected for the next few days. This should help enable utility crews to restore power lines as well as keep people without emergency generators from suffering too much from cold.
The upcoming weekend should be quite pleasant; a high pressure system will keep the Cambridge area dry and sunny, and you get to sleep an extra hour on Sunday morning due to the end of Daylight Savings Time! Sunrise will now be around 6:20 a.m., and sunset will be around 4:30 p.m. The days will continue getting shorter until Dec. 22, so plan your day accordingly so that you occasionally see the sun.
