This USA Today article pretty much sums up what living east of Lake Ontario is all about. Welcome to my world. I live a bit more north than this, but we've also received large amounts of this same "lake effect" band. The scary thing is, while this much snow over such a short time is unusual, these events are not all that rare. Fortunately, we're hardy folks up here in central and northern NY.

ONE HUNDRED INCHES OF SNOW

N.Y. SNOW TOTALS

Snow totals are from Feb. 4 through this morning.

OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) While the northern Plains and Northeast shiver in dangerously cold temperatures, the folks in upstate New York are keeping warm shoveling snow lots of snow.

Since Sunday, the small towns of Parish and Mexico have recorded more than 6 feet of snow, and forecasters with the National Weather Service say it isn't over yet.

Another 2 feet or more of heavy lake effect snow was expected Thursday for the communities along eastern Lake Ontario, and more squalls are likely through the weekend.

"We're just trying to keep up. It's almost an unreal amount," said Mayor Randy Bateman of Oswego, where 70 inches of snow had fallen by Thursday morning. "We catch up when it stops, but then it just comes again, even heavier."

Whiteout conditions the snow has been falling at a rate of 5 inches an hour at times forced state police to temporarily close Interstate 81 between Central Square and Pulaski, a stretch of about 15 miles. Travel advisories against unnecessary travel were posted for Oswego and its neighboring counties. Mexico officials renewed a snow emergency declaration, and many government offices were closed.

Schools were closed for a fourth day in Oswego and Mexico.

In West Virginia, where as much as 9 inches of snow has fallen, some schools that had been closed were able to reopen on Thursday, but in most of the state, classes were still delayed, and in a few counties, canceled. Officials had to call snowplow drivers out of retirement Wednesday to clear the roads.

The weather also disrupted travelers, leaving some stranded overnight in airports in the Midwest after flights to the Northeast were disrupted.

Temperatures in the Northeast were inching back up to something closer to normal for this time of year, but the upper Midwest and northern Plains still awoke to subzero temperatures Thursday minus-12 in Minneapolis and 3 below zero in Chicago.

The bitter cold and slippery roads have contributed to at least 19 deaths five in Ohio, four in Illinois, four in Indiana, two in Kentucky, two in Michigan, and one each in Wisconsin, New York and Maryland, authorities said. Three of them died Tuesday when two SUVs crashed on a slick road in northern Indiana. An autopsy Wednesday determined that an elderly woman found in a New York City building had died of hypothermia.

In Oswego, a big concern was keeping the city's 800 fire hydrants clear, said Fire Chief Ed Geers.

"We're just trying to keep on top of digging out the hydrants. When you get 5 feet of snow in 24 hours, it's tough," Geers said.

We don't have much snow here, compared to Oswego, Parish, Mexico, etc.

The greenhouses are 12 feet tall.

we've had 2 inches...all winter.

on an unrelated note: there's nothing better than going to the cardio doc, getting hooked up to the EKG, doing the stress test and then, 3 1/2 hours later, being told, "You've got the heart of a 30 year old".

exercise, quittin' smokin' and eatin' right. Plus, I've lost 20 pounds since last May.

in the words of Cosmo Kramer; "I've got the body of a 12 year old Swedish boy"

I'm going to be heading out this weekend and enjoying this global warming by ice fishing some more. As a matter of fact, a newspaper wants to me to follow up on that ice fishing essay and re-write it for publication. Off to the ice.

I swear. You'd follow Derek anywhere.

now, would you actually venture forth to the frozen lake, standing patiently by as he skillfully and with the precision of a surgeon prepared the evening's fare or would you retreat to the cabin, all snuggled up in blanket by the fire, auburn hair resting demurely by your delicate shoulders, sipping a hot apple cider?

I'm preparing an essay myself for some upcoming literature classes. Keep me informed.

Finally got a chance to get on line. Been doing snow removal. The driveway looks like the grand canyon. The snow thrower cant throw snow over the snow banks. There was about 5 feet of snow on the roof. Not as much as Parish and Oswego. Still a lot of shoveling.
I saw a Bald Eagle while shoveling the roof. It circled about 60 feet above me.
My wife ended up in the hospital. But shes home now and doing good. Driving in this crap was brutal. Its been a tough week.

I thought the snow that they are starting to talk about was coming from Pennsylvania, but apparently there is something off the coast of Carolina, so Lana, do some magic and send it out to sea, NY doesn't need the snow.

There's lots of snow y'all better take a look at the map, all the dark blue areas are SNOW. Probably coming soon to a neighborhood near you, except of course Georgia with their pink and that's the "red flag" for brush and forest fires conditions.

uh oh....your on to me Piacere! Yes, I would retreat to the cabin, snuggled up on a bearskin rug by the fire with a snifter of brandy, a good book and a sexy smile while i wait for Dereks return....at which time i would have had a nice hot bath drawn for him which he could enjoy while I cook the catch of the day.

i'll leave the rest to your ample imagination.

Wow, there's a shot. Maddog 20/20?? I prefer a pocket dose of Wild Irish Rose with a half a pin on my lips - the perfect combination.
