Storm Quintus in Cape Cod was packed with heavy wet snow and strong gusty winds. It is always fun to head out all bundled up after the storm and get some snapshots. The photo collage below was taken as we headed out from The Captain’s Manor Inn to Main Street in Falmouth Village. We felt very fortunate to have dodged the bullet of most snow on the Cape which went to neighboring Sandwich with 15.5 inches and also to miss the heavy toll of power outages that hit Yarmouth with 25 percent of the town without power. During the height of Storm Quintus we were getting an inch an hour in Falmouth and down the Cape in Sandwich they were getting over 2 inches and hour.
This is the sixth winter storm for Cape Cod in 2014 which is certainly much more winter weather than we have had since we purchased the inn in 2010. The weather forecasters are predicting a dry and warmer than usual summer and right about now that sounds really good.
