for those who seen my last blog regarding my mustang with snow on it...well...that was just the beginning of what would become a NIGHTMARE!!
Shortly after posting that blog, we lost power. This was thursday....we still dont have power today! The storm which no weatherman saw coming, dumped over a foot of snow in my area, and over 2 feet in surrounding areas!
Normally, this is not a problem for us, except for the fact that all the trees still had leaves. branches and trees falling everywhere! I had a tree land on my house, a pwer transformer in my yard exploded...the line fell on my neighbors chain link fence and sent the current right to her house, whcih in turn set the side of her house on fire.....
In a nutshell...no power for 4 days+ = kill myself. power was lost to nearly 400,000 residents....My work finally re-opened, so i could get on my work pc. Buffalo NY was declared a disaster area and is still in a state of emergency....so many trees fallen everywhere, THOUSANDS of power lines fallen and in the streets, no red lights working anywhere, driving bans still in effect for alot of areas, and there is a "boil water" advisory because the water authority has no power to purify the tap water....
This is the worst i have seen it since i have lived here. its amaziing...I have pics on my camera of my property during and after the storm. I will post it when i get my power at home back up.
I have checked my 40 message on here and see i have lost a JFO with roush rocks...congrats to him!
As for my snow hunt pics...i only took 2 pics, and they are the ones i posted in my last blog...they really arent from 2 different angles, but maybe you will all let me slide if i put the claim in? lol
anyway...from tree removal, and pure boredom...i am exhausted and dont want to be at work....but at the same time, im glad to be here...(we have lights and the internet lol)....god, how we take some things for granted!!
