It's always a little depressing to be watching the evening news, and having the weatherman tell you there's a snow "bomb" that's going to occur over your area that evening and the next day. It has something to do with the barometric pressure dropping a certain amount of degrees in a certain amount of time. The storm that alot of you had in the south Monday, causing some snow and icy conditions, moved up the coast on Tuesday. Another storm front moving down from the northwest collided with that one over Long Island, creating the "bomb" for us.
So, we spent about 3 hours clearing the driveway, cars, and walkway to the birdfeeder this morning. After lunch, as the storm slowed down, we headed over to the shop to clear the sidewalks and parking lot there. thank goodness for the snowblower we have, otherwise we would have never been able to do all this ourselves! This was a very wet heavy snow as well. It was difficult to move!
Well, I hope this makes you folks down south feel a little better; yes, I know it's chilly down there, but at least you're not shoveling a foot plus of this stuff! Until next time, take care!
