    House looks to be in a really good spot. The cabin appears to be locked and loaded for a pretty big snow. Will definitely be out there Tues and Weds night. May go tonight. Will take some photos and provide updates from the western end of the chautauqua ridge (just west of Peek Peak and just north of the Wilderness Lodge resorts)

    Cannot believe I have lived in NWPA since 1980 and only this summer got a place in our county's snow capital. I thought Edinboro was a different micro climate and in the snowbelt, by my word out there at the NY state line at our little cabin paradise it is just a different world. Stopped out after work to check before leaving. Looks like deep winter, 8 or 9" on the ground, light snow in the air, 28 degrees. At work along the lake, did leaves outside all day, upper 30's, not snow otg at all. Down here at home, several inches at best with some grass showing under the pines. I cannot wait til we build our home out there on Weeks Valley! Headed out the door to Charlotte to visit family for the holiday. A little disappointed I won't be here for the cold white Turkey Day...:) Anyway, wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Hello all, Nice start for the season. Only about 5" here in Edinboro PA, but was at the cabin all day at the PA/NY border at the start of the Chautauqua Ridge. About 11" out there I would say. Was heaviest overnight, woke up to about 8", then another 3 or so thru the day and early tonight. Meanwhile, the clowns at ERI are at it again right off the bat regarding snowfall measurements. At the 5:00pm report, indicated 13.2" for the day: http://w2.weather.gov/climate/getclimate.php?wfo=cle Not a freaking chance. I left the cabin about 6:30, drove up to and along the lake shore out to the from east Erie out to the airport. I would say there was maybe 5" otg? My friend said no more than 8" when it pretty much stopped by 2:00 pm and he cleared his driveway (about 3/4 of a mile from the airport). With settling/compacting, the 5 or 6 on the ground seems right. So once again, the airport is off by a staggering 38% or so.

    3" yesterday at the house. Went to cabin after work, about 6" out there.

    1.3" overnight. Snowing moderately at the moment, small flake size. As of this mornings measurement, puts me the exact seasonal total from last year, 154.8. Should move past that soon. Never would have guessed that at the end of Feb.

    Thanks so much. Going to track snow in both spots (best I can as it's about 35 mile drive from my Edinboro home) next couple / three years til we build and move there permanently. I'm sure for most LES events and our occasional synoptic storm I'll stay up there. Most likely will put webcam at the cabin property as well.

    Was a factor for sure. Pondered a home purchase just north of Sherman about a year ago, but the commute and substantial extra bite out of each paycheck quashed that.

    Will lurk this sub-forum more in upcoming years, got a property with Cabin on the Erie PA / Chautauqua county NY line at 1765' elevation. Forecast for this spot is much more in line with that put out by BUF for Chautauqua Ridge area. Put up sale pending sign yesterday. Our forever home will be built here in a few years. Is 1.5 miles west of Peak N Peek & 1 mile north of the Wilderness Lodge resort. Incredible snow depth out there yesterday afternoon 14 days into March, considering snow was pretty much completely melted off at the end of February. Sale Pending About 300' off road, in front of cabin, upper thigh Side of cabin, four foot drifts Back covered porch, 2 feet on it or so Buried picnic table
