Buffalo, NY

If you know anyone from Buffalo, you know they are Buffalo Proud!  I have been designing new items to reflect our wonderful city.  First up: Buffalo beer and wine glasses!  Mix and match a set- 1 beer and 1 wine glass, or 2 of the same only $14!

There is a lot to do and see here in and around Buffalo, NY!  Please check back often as I will be highlighting different areas around Buffalo and some of my Buffalo themed items.

An amazing site

 

Today, here near Buffalo, NY, it was -1°F with a wind chill of -19°…but the sun was out!! Seems like we haven’t seen the sun in a long time!  So, what else was there to do than to head outside and soak up the sun! LOL

Now, there has been a link going around on FB and other sites that Niagara Falls is frozen solid; it’s not true.  But, there is a lot of ice and the mist freezes in the air and coats everything in ice and feels like a hail storm.  The trees, lamp posts and railings are coated in ice and frozen snow.  It looks fluffy, but it’s frozen solid!

There was a lot of mist today so it was hard to see the actual falls; we headed over to the Canadian side to get a better view of the falls.

and new photos!

I’ve finally updated the website with more of my favorite photos from 2013 and into 2014.

2 weeks ago we were hit with the polar vortex and the Blizzard of ’14.  Frigid cold temps and brutal winds left behind some wintery beauty!  I took a drive up to Niagara Falls and along Lake Erie- here’s a couple of my favorites, check out my site for more!

Flowing and Frozen

Flowing and Frozen

While the falls didn’t actually freeze, there was a lot of ice along the falls, the gorge and in the trees.  It was starting to thaw and all you could hear was “snap, crackle, pop” as the ice fell out of the trees.

 

Blue River Ice

Saw this blue ice along the upper Niagara near the water intakes.  I’ve never seen blue ice before!

 

Mountains along the Shore

Mountains along the Shore

Along the lake shore were these 10-12 foot “mountains” of ice, presumably from the high winds and below zero temps!
