Last Thursday I was really excited about my weekend – it was pretty much the only thing getting me through the rough days I was having at school. B and I were leaving Friday night for Connecticut. Saturday was going to be my Dad’s 60th Mustache Bash Birthday Party. My mom had been planning it for a month and I just knew it was going to be ah-mazing.
Any party my family throws is usually memorable. Drinking, robot moves, Egyptian dances, shimmying, and there is even sometimes karaoke…
Then Nemo swam into New England and my parents had no choice but to cancel the party.
To say that I was disappointed is an understatement.
I felt like a little kid and wanted to throw a tantrum fit.
My terrible week just got terribler.
Once I realized I was 27 and not 6, I got over myself and just hoped my family would be safe. I also went drunk bowling and hung out with my bffs.
Thankfully, all of my family and friends in Connecticut are doing well…even though they have +38 inches of snow. The Mayor of my hometown has advised everyone to stay indoors until atleast Tuesday…so most people have not left their homes since FRIDAY!
This guy apparently wasn’t listening to the Mayor.
Here are some photos I stole off FB of the insane storm:
My dad and nephews shoveling through the snow
My sister showing her feelings about shoveling the driveway since the plow couldn’t get into it
One lane outside my parents house
My brother couldn’t get out his back door
They had to bring in the big guns
The next two pictures were taken off of the WTNH News Channel 8 Facebook page…I have to give a shoutout to the incredible people who WORKED through this storm.
My brave fiance battling the storm to go to work!! Dedication, Yale New Haven Hospital nurses!!
An EMT pushing an ambulance…
My biggest shout out goes to the men/women who got behind the wheel of their own trucks and PLOWED. They put their personal safety on the line and left their families for days (most are still working) to clear the streets and driveways for others.
**My cousin’s fiance spent 36 hours plowing….came home to rest for a few hours…and then went right back out again.
**My sister-in-law’s father has been plowing since Friday with only 2 3-hour rest breaks.
Much love to the plowers in New England! Sending you prayers of safety!
