    Pixie Dust, Heat and Light To Buffalo NY

    If anyone has been watching their news or the weather channel, I'm sure you have seen the weather storm that has hit Western NY, or more specifically Buffalo NY. Well this Disney Fanatic has been in the dark since 530am friday morning. My grandparents are without heat and electricity since friday as well. my in laws and my sister were lucky enough to JUST get their power back on (its 10pm on sunday). My own parents were lucky enough to not loose their power so my kids (jeff 7, and emily 4) and my husband bill and i have been camped there all weekend. Our power has yet to come back on but keep your fingers crossed that it will be on soon. my kids do not have to go to school until AT LEAST wed. and some schools in the area are closed until next week.

    So anyways, please send any pixie dust, heat and light to buffalo!!!! And if anyone has a family member in the electrical business and they are working here in western ny (we have crews from mass, penn, etc.) PLEASE tell them THANK YOU!!!!!!

    Geez Karen, I knew that Buffalo got dumped on, but didn't know that you lived there. I also didn't know that there were places still battling to get the power back on. I will certainly be keeping you, your family and all of Buffalo in my thoughts and prayers! Keep warm and stay safe! We will be here waiting for you!

    my grandparents are OK for now. my one set of grandparents have like 3 stoves in their house so they are cooking up a storm and they have a little house so they are keeping their house nice and warm. they are just going nuts cause they are taking care of my 90 year old aunt who is half deaf and senile. she keeps asking why they wont turn the lights on! my other grandma is stubborn. she lives in a retirement building where half the building has power, though not her part. but she refuses to stay with my parents ouse becuase "its boring there!"

    at last i heard 200,000 people are w/o power and alot of people are being told that it wont be until SUNDAY when the power will be totally restored. i hope not my house!!! i want to go home!

    thanks for your pixie dust!!!

    We got our power back on at 6pm last night thank goodness. Alot of towns/villages still have driving bans and states of emergency.

    Alot of businesses and schools were closed so power crews could try to get things somewhat back to normal.

    Karen hope you get your power soon

    I hope your grandma's retirement village gets their power back soon. I'm sure she is driving her "powered" neighbors crazy by now!

    Glad all is well for everyone in Buffalo. We got lots of snow here,(Cambridge, Ontario) but nothing near as much as you did. It's funny, either we get dumped on and you don't - or the other way around, but never at the same time. I am sending you virtual Tim Horton's coffee to keep you warm.
