Old Man Winter

In all HIS glory strikes again! I am SO HAPPY!

Youve surely heard of Buffalo winters eh? I think thats what put us on the map and of course our wonderful Buffalo wings!!

This storm was a record breaker for us. He came in around 8am this morning and is STILL going strong without any breaks. We are shut down with travel bans to boot!

It took Jas 2 hours to get home when its normally a 50 min ride. Needless to say he couldnt make it in the driveway and is out plowing.

Its not as pretty as it can be because it is so windy, which makes for very dangerous travel! We have over a foot so far with another 1-3" lake effect tonite. And ANOTHER storm on the way:)

The snomobilers are out in full force, nothing better than the sound of a snomobile coming down the rd!!


Just as it started coming down

Around 4pm

Aww Jenn~That is my favorite kind of weather!
Well, at least you will have a white Christmas!!!
I hope you have plenty of things to keep the kids and yourself busy because then "cabin madness" sets in! You know what I mean?
It sure looks pretty, as long as your inside...huh?

Hi Jenn! The snow looks great! Looks like it would be fun to slide down the driveway! I can see myself as a child taking that chance. Take care, cozy up with some hot chocolate and enjoy! Deb

Hi Jenn

It's pretty but you can keep it. LOL don't like alot of snow. They are calling for some snow and ice here in Maryland on Sunday and Wednesday.

I'm so happy for you since you enjoy it so much... Be careful though.

Happy holidays

Yup and it already knocked my parents power out again for about an hour. What stress! Thousands are in the dark and this makes it worse... ugh! I usually love a good snow storm but this time it's awful for so many people. Hopefully the sun shines tomorrow.

I love it as long as everyone is inside and safe:) We had nothing but pouring down rain hard you couldn't even see, finally it stopped right when I got to the mall to Christmas shop!
Have a great weekend!

Jenn, I can so relate to this post....we had tons of snow during the night and Doug was out 4 times with the snowblower today.
Stay safe and warm and have fun on these great snow days!

Hi Jenn!

It looks beautiful Jenn! I hope we get some snow. But I am beginning to doubt it, at least not for Christmas. It was 75 here yesterday and I hate it! It's already 65 today and climbing and so humid! YUK!
So enjoy your snow, and stay warm & safe.
