6 Feet of Snow

By  |  2 Comments

If you have been watching the national news, you may have heard about a huge snow storm hitting NY. Well, I happen to be smack dab in the middle of one of the hardest hit area of the storm. We knew we would be getting lake effect snow, originally they said we would be getting only 2 feet. I went to bed Monday night with no snow on the ground, I woke up early in the morning and there was nearly 4 feet of snow on the ground. Wowzer! We do get a ton of snow normally but not in such a short period of time. Not to mention that it continued to snow all day Tuesday and part of the day Wednesday. Which brings the current total to nearly 6 feet of snow! We hadn’t seen a plow until this morning. There was finally a small one way path plowed around my street this morning incase emergency trucks needed to get in. The snow is so heavy/wet and there is just so much of it that the town plow trucks are even getting stuck, and having problems moving it.

But all is good, I am very thankful that I didn’t get stuck anywhere and that I still have heat, and electricity, as some are not as fortunate with this crazy storm. As I speak, we are currently getting even more snow, with 1-3 more feet expected.  I have shoveled/plowed my driveway for a total of 9 hours in the last 3 days so far, so at least I have something to keep me occupied.  We are currently in a travel ban, while the amazing volunteers and workers get the streets cleared for us, and rescue people that need help.

    Wow this is so cool…although a bit of an inconvenience I imagine! We got a lot of snow in 2010 when I was still in school, I loved it but it did cause a lot of problems!

      Yes! It’s not half bad if you’re safe inside with heat working. However today it is now hot outside so it’s all melting. So we’re hoping it won’t cause any flooding problems!
