Even the trees weren't ready for winter! The storm affected more than 80 percent of the trees in Buffalo and surrounding areas. Even my lone warrior is down from the thick, wet snow! The snow storm also also took out electricity for 400,000 residents (including ours). We spent our weekend at coffee shops, malls, and anywhere there was heat and electricity!
When I looked out of my window on Friday morning, the landscape looked like a page out of horror movie. Wires dangling, branches scattered around in the snow and the snap of trees as they cave in to the weight of the snow! Not to mention the constant lightening and the heavy snow fall.
Things started to look better on Saturday once the sun was out. If you look out of my window now, you probably won't be able to say that there was a snow storm.
As the city tries to come to terms with the damages and restore electricity and heat to the neighborhoods, one thing is clear. The parks and the neighborhoods will bear witness to the record snow for years to come!
