Not exactly a snowstorm

Not exactly a snowstorm

An uneventful snowfall, as they said it would be, for my area. Not the blanket I was hoping to wake up to but pretty I guess. I was watching this car for a bit as it’s tires kept spinning. He was unable to find traction to get out of the lot. o I learned the hard way that the same traction need holds true for wheelchairs. Any snow or worse ice and my wheelchair can easily get stuck. A patch…

Mid week review

Mid week review

Well the major snowstorm that is going to pound the northeast is going to leave significantly less on part of Long Island. I’m located in that part. We should only see 3-5 inches by the end.

My scooter also can prove difficult. It’s like being stuck in the mud in the…

Weather report

I went to get my nails done yesterday and was so happy seeing a few snowflakes. I wasn’t so happy an hour later when my car was covered and the streets were covered in this wet heavy snow. It came down super fast. In that hour a few inches had fallen and was continuing to fall. I now had to drive home. Wasn’t the greatest ride home. Took me about 20 to make a 7 minute drive. This morning I…
