  • getting pounded?????

    it sure looks like it..........
    ... Lake effect snow warning remains in effect until 7 am EST

    A lake effect snow warning remains in effect until 7 am EST

    Lake effect snow near south of Watertown will be firmly
    established over the Tug Hill today and tonight. The lake snows
    will begin to drift further south late tonight and Tuesday as
    winds shift more to the northwest.

    Snow accumulations of 2 feet or more expected by Tuesday morning
    in persistent snows... especially across the Tug Hill plateau.
    Strong winds will produce whiteouts and heavy drifting with very
    dangerous driving conditions. Some roads will become impassable.

    In lake effect snow... the weather can vary from very heavy snow
    to clear skies just a few miles away. If you will be traveling
    across the region be prepared for very difficult winter
    conditions and rapid changes in Road and visibility conditions.

                Webb cam looks bleak and Christy's Cam shows a little snow. Not nearly what's seen in Barnes Corner's or Flat Rock.
                In this world we're living in, we have our share of sorrow . . . answer now is don't give in, aim for a new tomorrow.

                          LOWVILLE, N.Y. -- Remember winter? It's back _ at least on northern New York's Tug Hill Plateau.

                          Heavy lake-effect snows blanketed the region east of Lake Ontario on Monday, dropping up to 2 feet, forcing schools to close, and prompting the Lewis County Sheriff's office to advise residents not to drive unless entirely necessary.

                          "We've got probably 18 to 24 inches already, and the wind is gusting, so there's bad visibility, especially on the secondary roads," Undersheriff John LeDuc said. "It's just hard getting around right now. We have a lot of vehicles off the road but nothing serious. The difficulty is that without snowbanks, it's hard to tell where the roadways are."

                          According to a snow depth map produced by the Northeast River Forecast Center in Taunton, Mass., much of the 2,000-square-mile Tug Hill area had a snow cover of just 1 to 5 inches a week ago. So, the storm was welcome news for snowmobilers who have been itching for a place to ride during this abnormally warm winter.

                          "They've got enough snow now," LeDuc said. "It's supposed to calm down tomorrow morning, but we are expecting stronger winds and continued lake-effect bands. It's been a relatively mild winter until now, but it's early in our winter. It goes on until April."

                          Forecasters were calling for an additional 2-to-3 feet in persistent squall areas. Montague, which was stunned in 1997 by a storm that dropped 77 inches in a 24-hour period, was one of the expected targets.

                          "It's not really dropping as fast as that 1997 storm did, but it's a welcome sight," said Susan Lucas, proprietor of the Montague Inn, "It's been warm and no snow. So far, we're at about 36 inches since last night, and it's still coming down. We're happy. Last weekend was probably the worst weekend of the year. We were right down to grass. Now, we're snowed in."
