We're over a foot, pulled an f150 and a car out of a ditch, then watched this happen right in front of me. Helped the sheriffs shut the road down

So far, just rain. They said 8-16" the other day, now it is 2-4", which is much better. This fricken winter can be over any time now.

It was 38 yesterday, it felt like a heat wave, I was in a t shirt all day. Cleaned out the truck and pressure washed 300lbs of salt off of it.

How much have you had so far?

Seems the snow has turned to sleet, but the temp is dropping. Strange storm.


I heard Syr has 10"'s as of 4 pm.

When I shoveled it felt like 4' but 12" or 14"

That's some heavy wet snow though

The past few days were nice. We've had about the same weather I'm guessing. Wind is howling now though and back in the 20's tonight/ 30's tomorrow. The first taste of spring is sooo sweet, keep it coming.

I feel for you guys still getting hammered, one more storm and I might lose my mind! The coffers are getting thin after this bs winter we've had.

They are getting 2 feet in the NH mountains. I am climbing a summit or two there this weekend. Oh, that will be fun.

Re: Blizzard- Buffalo, NY


It's over here in Buffalo, hard to say how much 10-12" could be less...hard to tell there are wind drifts all over the place.....


Going to have to get up early and start my white powder transfer machine.....


Hopefully,
This is it for winter storms......I'm all stocked up...

This happened while I was sitting in truck eating lunch.
Never seen someone run so fast.

Re: Blizzard- Buffalo, NY


Did I mention we had some wind? Yup that was me in my pajama pants and boots stringing together as many tow ropes as I could. Trying not to have to pull the truck into the neighbors yard to drag the kids trampoline back into the yard it belongs. Guess I should have been thinking of that instead of my posts, lol.

Stay warm guys!

And I was going to head to my cabin on Tug Hill this weekend; I guess I will re-think that and get some work done at the shop.
