We are a few miles North of the storm center. Still, we were locked in for 4 days with snow and blowing. As of today, 27 deaths from those caught in cars, snow shoveling heart attacks, etc. This a less than half of what many got.View attachment 126720
You REALLY got hammered!!!
'Reminds me of the winter of 1996 HERE. Several roofs actually caved in from the weight of the snow and ice (3 feet+ deep).
Here where I am we were only hit with 10" of snow this time around...but experienced high winds, freezing rain and single digit temps at night in the process. Roads / sidewalks were ALL skating rinks for 3-4 days.
Our mail hasn't been picked up or delivered since 12/19 even though the ice and snow pretty much all melted
on 12/24. Don't know how many bills are sitting in the post office, so I'm going down there this morning (CALLING is a waste of time...no one ever answers) to see if I can pick the mail up myself.
Verizon sent me an email yesterday just short of WARNING me that my bill is due on the 29th (tomorrow), so I should download their "app" and pay it NOW (electronically) to avoid a late charge! I have NEWS for them...I will download no app NOR will I pay a late fee
due to weather-related late delivery. That payment was mailed before Lincoln was assassinated...so I don't know where the heck
it might be at the moment. I would imagine tens-of-thousands of people are in the same weather-related boat.
End of rant.
(Where are my stinkin' nitro pills...???)
