On Thursday January 4, 2018 we got pummeled by a blizzard. Sixteen inches of snow. Hurricane force winds. Crazy high tides.
Earlier in the week the news was saying the storm would miss us. Maybe.
Then it got quickly upgraded to a snowstorm.
You know it’s bad when work cancels for the next day before it even starts snowing!!!
(I was grateful for that!)
The storm started off slow with flurries. I went outside a few times to make sure we could open the front and back doors and shoveled the walkway.
All of a sudden a few hours later there was a foot of snow. Howling winds.
So VERY grateful that we didn’t lose power.
I was worried pipes would freeze or we would run out of oil. Our awesome oil company delivered the next day to fill us up and we would’ve been okay another week at least.
Watching the news during the day was HORRIBLE. So many homes along the coast were damaged by the epic high tides from the storm and the full moon. Water rushed across streets and into homes stranding people. In my town firefighters carried people out of their homes. : (
At work the next day some people were surprised by how much snow we had. People that lived further south had mainly rain and only had five or six inches of snow. Crazy!
Did I mention how much we love our oil company?!!!
