We have had our first blast of snow for the 2014 Winter season and it was/is a doozy. It is still going on all around us. It has stayed a little to the south of our little Island so we only have about 3 inches so far. We are supposed to get more later tonight and into tomorrow morning.
It started coming down and picked up speed covering many areas all over Buffalo, NY.
Plow crews from all over are dedicating their time to different towns and areas. This is Lancaster, NY and the photo is courtesy of a Grand Island town employee who traveled the 25 minutes to help dig this area out.
In other areas sadly people are snowed in (the man of the house’s parents are one of them). They can’t get out their doors to even begin the shoveling process. But they are much better off than the people who are dealing with the weight of the snow crashing through their windows and collapsing their roof.

And while this is a huge nuisance, I can’t complain as we are toasty with our woodburner, stocked with animal feed for the farm, have a pantry filled with canned goods and a freezer jam packed with meats, frozen fruits, and homemade pies just in case we get hit like the other areas!
