    Pretty much agree with all of this. We also seem to have a couple of curiosities repeating: 1) early snows in November causing us to go from final lawn mowing / leaf raking to serious snow blowing in about a week's time and, 2) the XMas holidays warmup again, from mid December thru first week of January. I give this past winter a B grade. I had average snowfall IMBY (135.5") and w/in a few inches of last year's total. Can't complain about that. The downside was frequent cutters which slammed snowpack repeatedly. We had a few arctic outbreaks and it all started pre-Thanksgiving yet again and lasted thru most of March. That said, I usually give our Spring weather a D for the reasons Buffalo Bumble stated. 70s and sun forecasted for tomorrow though. So we are slowly ramping up. Here's to a hot & dry Global Warming summer! (Yes, I have a pool in one of the cloudiest areas of the US).

    I thought about that. I didn't snowblow the last one. But...I need to run my snowblower dry for the end of season. So rather than just idle it next weekend, figured I'd put it to some use before I drive it back to the shed. And they havent plowed our road. Think of the children!!

    About 3, maybe 4" here. We may eke out 6". Not a total bust but projections from a day ago were predictably over baked. 3-6" call by Teske looking pretty good for SYR area, other than the hills south. Pretty windy.

    Still RN- downtown SYR. I think most ppl around here are going to be wondering WTF with that WSW by the time this is done.

    Light RN downtown SYR. More like a heavy drizzle. Going out with a whimper in the lowlands? #sad

    Some decent cellular snow bands rolling thru north of Syracuse. Not quite an inch so far. Padding stats tonight.

    I'd agree on the B- grade for winter around Syracuse. I'm at about normal snowfall levels and temps weren't exactly mild...although the frequent cutters were unfortunate. I was going to go C+ but the early start with a 16" dump a week before Thanksgiving, with record cold to follow, bumps it up a touch. Two themes with some recent repeatability...1) early start with big Novembers (2 of past 3 winters IIRC) and, 2) mid Dec to early Jan lull. The timing of the lull seems to be happening with some frequency over the past several years. Probably coincidence but the holidays are a crappy time for winter to go on hiatus.
