Buffalo, New York Nominated for Ice Bucket Challenge - Record Snow!
For those that don't know, I am a Floridian...yes, one of those people from alligator country who believes you should be able to wear flip flops at least 11 months of the year and thinks that 70 degrees on Christmas day is chilly enough to wear my "winter" coat, which is a fashionable Miami black and probably a tad bit too tight around these Latina hips.
SO WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I DOING IN BUFFALO?!!?!?!? THE CURRENT SNOW CAPITAL OF THE USA? BLIZZARD COUNTRY? LAND OF SNOW AND ICE?
Yes, today is snow blizzard city here in Buffalo, New York. It is a veritable winter wonderland, something that Elsa from Disney's Frozen would have found quite like home. And we Buffalonians (yes, that is what we are called "Buffalonians", sounds like something from a Lord of the Rings Wild West offshoot, but that is what we are called) are prepared, and in fact, some are super excited about the chance to ski, sled, and enjoy other winter activities now that winter has officially said "HELLO"!
But as for me, I will be thankful that I have a roof over my head, a hubby that gets to stay home, and a warm bed to snuggle in for the next four months! Viva la Buffalo!
WORDS OF THE DAY:
THUNDERSNOW - A snowstorm with thunder or a badly conceived comic book character
