So we here in East Providence seemed to survive Nor’Easter Nemo, Winter Storm/Blizzard of 2013 pretty well. Many of us lost power for much of Friday night and throughout Saturday, but save for the odd minor car accident and a house fire where there weren’t any injuries to report, we came through basically unscathed.
