My daughter’s en route to NYC as we speak...supposed to arrive about 4:45PM. Hope she doesn’t end up spending tonight on an airport floor in BFE. It’s gonna be close...
I live in upstate NY but lived in Williamsburg Va for a year. It was a glorious winter...2 inches of snow...amusing...the Town was shut down...
But boy, have we been enjoying this snow! Too bad that it is so powdery here though. Can't manage to make a good snowman with it.... :(
I love Colonial Williamsburg!
