I was exploring the reasons why I have stayed here, in this area, for so long. With the weather so cruel four months of the year. First of all I have made two attempts at moving away. Tampa, Florida was my first destination. Because I haven't an adventurous bone in my body my trip was fun, living there was awesome for as much I seen and participated in which wasn't a whole lot. (a coming soon post of it's own.) Then I tried Pennsylvania. While there were many fine points, come November it has the same unforgiving winter weather as New York.
At this point, we come to today's weather, here in South Western New York. The temperature dropped from forty to fifteen in two days. The snow and ice hadn't gone away when the weather went to forty it just melted a little. Every layer of water, slush or snow that had unfroze in turn refroze. Last night we experienced a terrible storm dumping what seemed like eons of new snow.
Very early this morning a Board of Public Utilities plow truck slid down Ohio St, Hill, through the intersection of Pershing and ended up stopped just before hitting a fire hydrant and more. Those of you that live in a snow state won't be interested at all, although a few of my southern friends have asked to see our snow or happenings from the snow.
There were no injuries, thankfully! The driver was fine and the truck came just short of hitting anything. Weather hazards are fairly common to us, although, a plow truck losing control, sliding down a city street is not. Just a 'lil something I had to share. When all is well that ends well some of our winter weather can prove to be pretty interesting like the Ice Castles, Ice Sculptures or Niagra Falls.
