Just an update since yesterday.
After arriving, we first unpacked the boxes from Amazon.com, set up a space for Miffy, and inflated the air mattress- which is the only furniture we have right now.
We put away the few things that we had as carry-ons. We went out to explore. About 4 blocks away is Walgreens, so we started there. The snow was slowly coming down. We picked up some snacks and cat food. We grabbed a pizza to go from a place that just opened.
The Comcast cable arrived on time and stayed about an hour setting up everything. We have internet, cable, and telephone service- but no tv or phone yet- but they should arrive by the end of the week.
We went out around 6 to go back out and get a few more things since more snow was in the forecast. We walked to Walgreens, but decided to keep going down the street until we found the grocery store. This was how high the snow piles on the sidewalk are:
The grocery store was on the second floor of a big building and is called Shaw’s. It was about a 20 minute walk back, although it was a little snowy- so we walked on snow, slush, and some sidewalks were really clear. We carried a big duffel bag there, plus 2 plastic bags full back.
It stopped snowing in the late evening, but started again this morning. I think it turned to rain now. We both worked from home this morning, but Benjamin left to go to the office for the rest of the afternoon.
