Yes, you read that right -- no school for the kids, no work for G -- though he'd already taken the day off -- due to SNOW. We have about 7" and more is falling now. Can't believe it -- I've never seen snow like this so early in the year!

Lots of power lines and the like down in Buffalo (tv says 300K w/o power) but here on zee island we are safe, and I even went to the grcery store yesterday. Only casualty is the patio umbrella, snapped clean off due to the weight of the snow. Not going anywhere today as many roads are closed and no uneccesary travel is advised, so we stay in and I futz around. Yay!

I can't even do laundry since they have instituted a water restriction. Oh darn. ;)

Kids out playing in the snow, having a ball. Oddly, L asked me earlier in the week when it would snow. "Not until after Thanksgiving, probably," I said. Oops.

Wheeee! I got an email from corporate saying that 5 of our hotels in the Buffalo area were without power. I forwarded it to a former co-worker who is back in Buffalo now, saying "Dude! It's still 80+ here!" Was that evil of me?

My husband will be so jealous!! (Yes, I know he's very strange)

We were supposed to get "snow showers" and we got nothing.

It's weird we got this much: 10 miles north of here there is nothing but semi-freezing rain! South of us in Buffalo got hammered, though. Lake-effect snow is a strange thing.

I do love the snow. Fell free to remind me I said that in February.

we're up on a ridge along the valley - our steps and car were covered with a thin layer of ice, but 2 minutes down the road not a single other car or house was in this shape. stunned. mid-oct?

wow. I'm amazed at the snow - my husband was telling me about the amounts. Yikes!

Glad the kids are enjoying the snow, mine are pining for it (now that they have their new boots!). And it came right after the Canadian Thanksgiving, so you were right!

I'm so glad we don't get snow here. But today was the first day it was really cold since Fall began. Thank goodness!
