Storm of the Century, December 2022

I’ve been getting emails from many of my blogging friends (even from some in countries on the other side of the world!), asking about the historic snowstorm here in Buffalo, New York.

I’m touched by everyone’s concern.  We are fine.  Hubby and I hunkered down on Friday morning, within minutes of the storm hitting, and at this point are just waiting for the driving  bans to end.  We were only without power for 6 or 7 hours on Friday, and didn’t even need the portable generators.  We have plenty of food and the furnace and other vents are open, so we won’t get asphyxiated.  There’s just enough open areas in the back for Puppy Cody to go out and do her business.

Poor Cody did get a bit upset when the wind was howling and the blizzard was in full force, and she saw this window.  She must have thought an alien was trying to get in:

Yes, that’s actually snow up against the screen, which is a good eight feet from the ground.  I can’t really blame Cody; I must admit that sight scared me, too.

Christmas morning was beautiful, though, despite the hugh drifts.  BTW, that’s a 6-foot fence at the back of the yard:

NOTE TO THOSE WHO WISHED FOR A WHITE CHRISTMAS:  You definitely got what you wanted, but next time be a little more careful with your wishes, ok?

It’s been an adventure, for sure.

And so many thanks to our wonderful next-door neighbor who just snowblowed the front of our driveway, as well as the sidewalk.  I wasn’t looking forward to hubby having a heart attack trying to clear that snow and me trying to get him to a hospital or something, and our plow service told us it could be days before they can get here.  We have the best neighbors ever!

Hugs, all.   Stay safe and warm.
