totally down.

December 11, 2009 in Buffalo,Syracuse,weather,weekend

I’m bummed. I’m super super bummed.

I was going to leave for Ohio last night. But there was a storm last night in Buffalo (the city I have to drive through to get there). Blizzard like conditions. White-outs. Zero visibility in places.

My idea? Leave in the early morning. So I woke up at 4am, packed up my car, and headed west. The weather in Syracuse is fine. Very little snow & clear roads… well, when I got to Rochester, I decided to tune my iPhone to a Buffalo radio station.

Well it’s a good thing I did, cause they had just announced that the interstate 90 (the interstate that goes from Syracuse to Cleveland) was closed west of Buffalo. CLOSED!

So I made an executive decision decided to turn back around and head back to Syracuse.

So no BF this weekend. No family Christmas party. Nothing. I’m so blah and bummed right now…

and it will be another two weeks before I attempt to make another trip back to Ohio for Christmas. Yes, I used the word… attempt. Nothing is guaranteed in this weather. And now I have to go another TWO weeks before getting to see BF.

Brace yourselves… it’s gonna be a rough one.

That sucks big time. But your safety is the most important…BF wants you around for a long time, I'm sure, so it was a smart decision that you turned around! I know that couldn't have been easy. Keep your chin up, girlie! Watch Christmas movies, that always cheers me up.

I am so sorry to hear that! I hope it's sunny and 70 when you attempt the trip in a few weeks. My husband has just gotten back from being gone for a year for a deployment and will be leaving again in a few months so I am sort of use to being alone. If I were going to be this weekend, I would stay in my jammies all weekend, watch Christmas movies, make cookies, wrap presents, and drink lots of hot chocolate.

Hang in there! I hope your next attempt ends in success.

Although apparently parts of Indiana/Ohio/Michigan have been hit with an “arctic gust.” The wind has been pretty terrible, but hopefully that doesn't stop you!
