Firstly, I wish to thank all of you for your comments and your concern. I have not read all the comments and I do not know if I will be able to answer them today. I am seriously tired.
I have just come in from digging through snow in this blizzard, for 4 hours. Recorded snow fall right now, 2pm EST is 49″ with 3 feet more expected to fall by Thursday morning. This snow may be beautiful and stunning, but, there have already been deaths. No emergency vehicles can get through. None. Even the snow plows are having trouble. They have these huge Deere Dozers in front of them, with a huge line of police cars and plows in back of them. I didn’t get a picture of that, so you will just have to take my word for it. This is bad.
I discovered we had no heat this morning, due to our heat vents being blocked by snow. My husband and I had to shovel through chest high snow to get to the vents to clear the snow away from them. From there, because birds kept flying up to me, I pushed/dug through chest high snow to get to the bird feeders. I made it, soaking wet and ready to drop. I have not been able to get over to the barn to feed the barn cats so I called the owners of the barn to have them leave out plenty of clean water and food for the cats I normally take care of.
I have 11 more pictures for you and that will be all for the day. My husband and I managed to clear two LONG paths, and part of the driveway. I cannot believe my own eyes. Only Lancaster, NY is getting dumped on. No one else around us has any snow, or has perhaps one inch of snow. Friends, I honestly am having trouble believing this is actually happening. What is important, both my husband and myself and all of our cats, have plenty of food, are warm, and are safe. Again I really thank you for your concern. Bless you.
