We just got back home, from a family reunion in Buffalo NY,
which we do, between Xmas & New Year of each year. Shortly
after crossing the border into the States; the Peace Bridge connecting
Buffalo New York & Fort Erie Ontario was shut down behind us, due to
heavy snow accumulations coming down (rates of 6 inches per hour coming
down?). The American Customs fellow, says "Don't you folks
listen to the News?..roads are being shut down everywhere."
We had room
reservations at the Four Seasons Sheraton, across from the Walden
Galleria Mall. Meanwhile, most direct highways were already closed, so
four cars from Canada, drive around Buffalo sightseeing for a couple
hours, before we finally got to the hotel. The Walden Galeria
Shopping Mall & Kmart parking lots were filled with Tractor Trailers,
since the Interstate Highways were shut down. These big trucks,
were put in there for storage by the Police, hoping for an early spring,
no doubt? <lol> The shopping malls had been shut down.
Once we were
inside the hotel, we had a very comfortable snowed-in scenario in store
for us? Indoor swimming pool, hot tubs; room service for anything
anyone wants; and our families had brought like $1000.00 worth of
refreshments at Duty Free, as well as food treats, so we were set up for
fun, being snowed in.
left, three days later, the weather channel & CNN reported, that
seven feet of snow had fallen since Christmas. We enjoyed every
minute of it.
