SNovember

Ok, so it’s been a while!  Every time I think I’m going to stay caught up, I realize it’s been MONTHS since I’ve posted!

Some of you may have seen the news that Buffalo got hit with a crazy lake effect snow storm last month- dubbed Snovember.  Where I live, we ended with an official total of 78″ of snow!  With 3-5” per hour, and it snowed for hours, we got buried!

We were woken up at 5am by a call from school saying it was closed..

And it just kept snowing and piling up….then it fell

Same view out the back, but the snow slid off the roof! 6:30pm

My husband worked hard to keep the driveway clear, so that when it did finally stop snowing, we wouldn’t be completely buried!  We woke up the next day to some sun, and lots of white!

 

We spent the day shoveling. More snow came and we shoveled some more. The plows finally came, well, not plows but payloaders and bulldozers, then the plows! Towns from the north sent their plows to help.  Neighbors helped neighbors shovel and those that could get out made trips for milk and bread for those still buried.

We finally saw the street on 11/21 and the driving bans were lifted.  First stop- Wegmans for some milk! (and essentials for the neighbors!)
