Friday seems like worrisome weather (potential flooding).
I hate it when I see a phrase like "possibly historic" in a forecast.

Things were historic enough in January. So many homes and cars wrecked.

WBZ seems to be putting out the most dire warnings:
"potential to be one of our biggest and most destructive storms in recent memory."

I hope they are all wrong about the severity.

In E Glo. There’s a city lot behind the dentist near the laundromat. Writers Center overflow parked there. It now has jersey barriers reducing the parking lot size to over half:

The NWS has concern that the impacts from this storm could rival and
significantly exceed the coastal flooding damage experienced by eastern MA
coastal communities during the Nor'easter this past January due, in part to
the following factors; (1) the intensity and height of the predicted storm
wave action on top of the astronomically high tides, and, (2) the long
duration of this coastal storm.

I noticed that a few weeks ago. It's been used as a town landing for launching small boats for the last 30 years or so.

All that rush to get bread and milk?

Gin. That'll see you through. ('Fever Tree' tonic is also highly recommended). And when you're tired of G'n'Ts...a small bottle of Vermouth and a brace of cocktail onions will make for a very pleasant pivot.

Although the Friday morning tide is a spring tide and the highest of the month, it is
scheduled for 10.83 feet in Gloucester harbor. The really high spring tides are about 12 feet
so it starts about a foot lower than max before storm surge. This may not keep it from doing
serious damage when you superimpose storm surge above it, but I am betting against the
word "historic".

By the way I used to launch and repair the International dory committee boats
at the lot behind the dentist (Martinetti) in East Gloucester. It was owned by Americold
and they asked us to stop using it. I think they were worried about liability. We have
been using Dun Fudgin ever since.

School is in session, dropped a grand kid at O'Maley.
Georges is open but lost power for about half a cup of coffee.
Driving is reasonable so far but I assume roads will start flooding around 10:30.
I have to go to  a meeting on Witham St. at 9. Not fun I fear.
