Winter Whopper in NYS

We interrupt our usual Trekkie stuff to bring you some Weather news…

Well, as some of you know, I live in New York State, not too far from Binghamton, NY. As you may have heard we had quite a whopper of a snow storm (technically a “Nor’Easter”) tear through my area on Wednesday night! Binghamton NY had a record 40″ in a 24 hour period, at times falling 5″ and hour!! We even made the national news! It started lightly on Tuesday afternoon, but by Wednesday morning, we woke up to this:

Backyard

Front stoop

About 36″
There’s two cars under here on the driveway (hedge in foreground)
My brave husband! For reference he’s 6″2″.
This was after I dug out 2/3rds of the front walk – note the height of the snow on the roof!
Here’s my husband about to turn into the front walk to get the rest of what I dug out plowed!
I got a bit spattered by the snow spray!!
Our sons — we plowed so much we had to refill the snow blower!
The snow atop the cars was almost as high as the cars themselves!
Like digging out the Materhorn!

We were all pretty knocked out after all this snow work — it took about four hours!!

Wishing you a relatively safe and cozy winter season, and I hope we won’t see another one like this for a long time! But yeah…2020.

Weather Alert -Please read

Hi All,

As you may have heard, Hurricane Sandy is moving up the east coast this weekend and  We’re expecting a lot of rain for the next 4 days or so with the bulk of it on Monday and Tuesday. (Especially if the the storm curls left into New York State, where I live).

I encourage all of my readers, especially if they live on the east cost to please prepare for the effects of this storm.   I probably won’t be posting live for a few days next week depending on the severity of the storm and how it may affect my area, but that’s trivial compared to the real life complications this storm may cause. (I will have a couple of scheduled posts)  Please be prepared and safe wherever you are, it might be a good idea to get some extra provisions today.  If you’re in a highly threatened area, be sure you have a disaster supply kit

Stay safe!  See you next week (probably live on Thursday) -Therese
