We had gotten lots of rain Tuesday night and yesterday morning. When we get that much rain, it comes in my basement. *sigh* Then it turned to snow. It snowed most of the day, but really did not stick.
It was ok, because I spent most of the day yesterday packaging orders. (Thank you to everyone who has purchased one of my creations!) When I left the house to go to the post office around 4pm there was a dusting of snow on the ground. I didn't even have to clean off the car. I got 1/2 way across town the roads were terrible and it was snowing REALLY heavy!! Crazy! I got to the post office safely and then went to the grocery store to pick up a couple things. When I got home it had started to snow here a bit. I watched it snow for the rest of the night and we even had some thunder & lightning. It was wild.
I woke up this morning at 5am to the beep beep beep of a front loader trying to get a snowplow unstuck in front of my house. It took them almost an hour to get it out.
When I turned on the news I found out that most of the thruway here in Buffalo (I-90) & the 400 had been closed all night....as I started to write this at 3pm, it is still closed and there are tractor trailers and cars stuck all along it.
So when we finally went outside to dig out around 7am this is what we saw...
We ventured out this afternoon to this...my white picket fence at the end of my driveway

Loving her forced smile and shifty eyes...but look at that snow on the hat. ADORABLE!
