We are fine, Mimi, Maria and Nana. We only had a foot of snow, and it was very light. No problems, and not much wind. The coast, where Dondi is near Boston really got hit hard. Our son has about 30 inches of snow, and said his "car is out there in the driveway somewhere"-drifts about 4-5 feet. Ebkrueg- AHHH!! The Fountain Bear!!! I will look again where you told me to :) Thanks!
Sorry you couldn't find the Bear Cam. It is officially the "Geneseo Main Street Bear Cam" and it's on the right side under the "advertise here" section.
Stay safe, Suzy. Praying for all of you up north.
Same here Suzy, keep warm and stay safe:)
This boggles my mind Suzy! I can't even imagine it. I think about you every time I see the weather map on TV, and we are praying for the whole area. Stay safe!
Dondi-Have been watching the news about Boston and downeast Maine. I think it was wise to implement the no driving ban. And you are getting the wind as well. Not good. Hope you stay safe. Will be thinking about you, for sure! My quick estimate here is that we got a foot, but I haven't ventured downstairs yet. Robryan-As always, thanks for stopping by!
Sounds like you are going to get a lot of snow - we've seen it on the news here in Australia. I hope you don't lose your power pumpkin - & stay safe.
P.S. the snow is piling up on tree limbs the same way as on our fence. We could lose power. As it happens, we already lost a tree on the street last week; it pulled down a bunch of wires, and they spent several days fixing the area. Maybe with that and the damage from the last few hurricanes, we'll be OK.
Consider yourself lucky! Here in Boston we could get over 2', which is pretty hard to manage in the city. The mayor banned all cars starting after 4PM. At 11 PM it augurs badly - the snow is so sticky it's actually filled in the wire fence surrounding our garden - packed in and filled the 2-1/2" gaps. It's just one white wall. The narrow 1-1/2" pipe which runs along the top has 8" on it in places - and that's in spite of high gusting wind! I'm not sure I've ever seen snow like this - at least not in quantity. I don't look forward to trying to shovel it! Because of the drifting, it's hard to tell how much we've gotten, but the bulk of it is supposed to land between now and early afternoon tomorrow.
Hey Laura! At this exact time in the universe, they are calling for 10-16 inches for us. The total snow amounts have varied tremendously the past 24 hours. The forecast could change again in an hour! :) When we wake up in the morning, we shall see what we have to shovel! :) Our son, in Maine, is looking at 2 feet plus. THAT, I would not be too happy to shovel!
Sounds like you are really prepared for the snow, Suzy. I am jealous! We're not getting anything. Nada. How much are you supposed to get? I bet a lot!
Ebkrueg-Checked out the website and found all sorts of great info on Geneseo and Livingston County. Smiled when I read about Monroe dorm being redone...I remember it when it was still "not old". We stopped by this summer to check out the campus. It has changed a lot over the many decades! Could not find the "bear cam"....will keep trying! Thanks for stopping and really like your avatar!Suzy
Hi again, yes near Geneseo. You can see our lack of much snow on the "Bear Cam" at www.Geneseesun.com.
Trudy-Thanks for checking in! We have brandy (mmmmmmm!) and jigidi...All is good with our world!Shirley-Our silk long johns are at ready for shoveling snow tomorrow!Ebkrueg-We had school cancelled today (as of last night)....flurries didn't start until 5 PM. Snow here is picking up...they are still predicting about a foot here. Are you near Geneseo? Robbie and Morris- We are ready for whatever comes our way. We rarely go to panic mode with weather issues. Our cupboards and freezers are always filled, our camping gear can get us through just about anything. We look forward to some opportunities to do a bit more skiing and snowshoeing. Will take some pics tomorrow of whatever is out there!
We enjoy winter, Madhat....and look forward to a bit of white weather:) We are always prepared, and will stay warm and safe!PG-We share the shoveling....and he does the "prep" for omelets on Saturday, and I cook. May toss a bit of something "special" in our coffee in the morn just to warm us up a bit.
YAAY!! Hope it's not to bad, pumpkin!
Good luck PKH, I'm sure you are well stocked and prepared. Nice puzzle.
The storm is a bust here in beautiful Livingston County. We were a little pocket of rain all day while everywhere around us it was snowing. PKH, I don't know about sending lilacs to the President - really didn't know they ever did it, hmm. . . . I'll have to find out about it.
Put your winter woolies on dear Suzy, This looks cold.
As long as you have electricity, you'll have jigidi -- that and your brandy will keep you comfy. Stay safe!
Stay close to Jim he has the shovel you can use and he can cook breakfast too. Multi-tasking kind of guy.
Hang in there. Stay inside and keep the fire burning.
Pilley...am having a bit of ginger brandy. :)Ardy...Yup-west of Albany. Just started snowing here, but are to get a foot or more....we'll see!Chickie....Always! :)
Hope they close the schools and keep people off the roads if it gets bad.
Stay warm and safe Suzy!
Stay safe and warm, Suzy. I don't remember where you are but I'm thinking near Albany, NY? Or am I confusing you with someone else? Nice Valentine flag. Thanks.
Sit tight and enjoy the show from inside with a hot beverage and a little jigidi.
