flies; river work continues
There's a saying in these snowy parts that ends with the words
the snow flies." As
in, "I want to move to Florida before the snow flies."
the weekend, western New York had 5 inches to a foot of snow,
depending on location. Here is Buffalo, we got 5 inches overnight
and in the morning on Sunday.
The next day, on the way to the church that I serve in Niagara
Falls, I saw a Coast Guard boat working on a channel marker
at Strawberry Island, near the foot of Ontario Street, five
minutes from the house, and one of the many great spot in my
commute (I have a great commute route).
also saw a work barge through the trees and homes along the
Niagara River on River Road on the border between Niagara Falls
and the Tonawandas -- my alternate commute route, which is even
more scenic than the regular route along the river and on the
guess these river crews don't worry about when the snow flies.
snow has been light so far this year. Tomorrow is supposed to
bring rain and a high of 50 degrees F. Absurd for Buffalo in
