Okay, I won't complain

It was awful walking in to school today from the parking lot. I am dreading the walk when it is icy and cold and awful. But I won't complain.

We could be having weather as bad as this:

BUFFALO, New York (AP) -- A rare early October snowstorm that buried parts of the Great Lakes region under as much as 2 feet of snow was blamed Friday for at least three deaths in New York state, widespread blackouts and stranded travelers.

The wet, heavy snow downed tree limbs and toppled power lines, leaving 350,000 homes and businesses without electricity in western New York and closing schools, officials said.

Workers on snowmobiles delivered food and water to motorists stuck along the New York Thruway, which was shut down for more than 100 miles by the storm.

Two people died in traffic accidents blamed on the storm -- one in Niagara County and the other in Lancaster -- and another person died after being hit by a falling tree limb while shoveling snow in Amherst, the Erie County Health Department said.
