Late Fall Blizzard! December 19, 2009

Saturday, December 19
Tonight, Long Island and much of the Northeast coast is enduring a late Fall blizzard.  Nassau and Suffolk Counties have been under a Blizzard Warning since yesterday and through 11AM tomorrow.  Accumulations are expected to be anywhere from 12 to 18, or even 20, inches of snow.

Tomorrow, I’ll be shoveling out.

Coincidentally, we got snow on this day last year, too, but much less and it changed to rain by afternoon.  Despite the wintry weather, I was still able to make it to IMAC for David Benoit’s Charlie Brown Christmas concert.  It would be my last visit to IMAC before it closed six months later.

In the days ahead, this post will be updated with pictures and final snowfall totals.

The National Weather Service reported 14.0 inches in Seaford.  So, I guess that’s what we got here in Wantagh.

I spent two hours shoveling with my mom and sister.  Our neighbor was nice enough to lend us his snow blower for my dad to use.  It’s a good thing I had all that help.  There was no way I would have been able to shovel that much snow by myself.

No, I did not wear those shoes while shoveling.  I changed into them when I went inside to take pictures.  I wore boots when I was shoveling.

It’s been three weeks since my last post.  I have nothing worthy to say here, but I don’t want to go any longer without posting.  So, here’s something.
