White Stuff Everywhere!

For a brief moment last night we thought the snow had ended and wouldn’t be too bad but oh, we woke up with snow everywhere! People were stranded on the roads and the hotel ended up being full. Cars and trucks just landed with total disregard to any organization in the parking lot; not that there are any lines to be seen anyway. It just looked funny to get up and see vehicles everywhere.

There’s a van that apparently ended up in the wrong spot, as well as an 18 wheeler that stuck and almost blocking the entrance to the hotel parking lot. So far, they’ve had another 18 wheeler and a big tow truck try to get him unstuck but he hasn’t budged. Cars can get out of the parking lot with him stuck there but the other 18 wheelers can’t get past him.

The people here are so friendly. Everyone has been out helping everyone else. The hotel has a couple of snow shovels and some of the people staying here have shovels and they’re all out helping the rest of us dig out.

Not much action on the streets though . . hopefully everyone will stay in and stay safe.

    I can’t believe all the snow you have and it’s still in the 70s in NJ! But that’s all changing as we speak. Have a safe trip home!

    It looks like we are all “enjoying” this white stuff! It is starting to melt here but it is messy during the day with all the slush and icy at night when everything freezes!
