    I am thinking I will see my first snowflakes of the season this upcoming week here on the Tug. At least I am hoping...

    And, unfortunately, BUF NWS doesn't have the summary for that winter.

    Oh, yes. I have been spent many an hour perusing through these maps. Lol

    I have noticed that as well. I was wondering if it was normal for the area. Thanks! I have never experienced a band off of Lake Ontario. I am starting to get excited with snow shower possibilities showing up for next week. My boss here said that he has seen 2 feet of snow on October 24th before.

    Dry as of late? It has been raining LOTS the past couple weeks...at least here to your east. The first half of July was super dry...but since then it has been rain rain rain.

    Well, Bo had his first snowfall! A sign that winter is coming for the rest of us...in 2 months.

    Thanks! If you drew a line from Redfield to North Osceola, I live almost right in the middle and just south of that line. I am working right here on the Tug where I live. I agree...about time for a LES thread!

    Appreciate that. I sure am familiar with that site. Love it.

    Every machine possible! Being a small community, I have quickly learned people share things with each other, barter with services, etc... Plows, Four wheelers with plows, Tractors with snowblowing equipment attached, Bucket Loaders, etc...these are already provided and will be used. The plow trucks here are beasts. Their snowblower equipment just cuts right in to feet of snow. Definitely don't plan on seeing any snowflakes here for at least the next week with this STUBBORN SE ridge. Have you already had snow up there in the UP?

    Looking forward to it, Bo! I am originally from Lancaster, PA. Lived in Spring Lake/Grand Haven area of Michigan the past 10 years. Already have had many conversations with locals that you have to keep up with it. It is a full time job.

    I will definitely be in touch with you about west Michigan weather. Hopefully we will both get socked with snow this winter!

    Ha...sure is! Hope you are doing well, Hoosier. Definitely a different lifestyle here. The closest small towns are Pulaski and Camden, which are 25 minutes away. While remote, bigger cities like Watertown, Syracuse, and Rome/Utica are all less than an hour away. We will definitely be stocking up somewhat, but they take really good care of the roads during winter here. The economy relies on people who come for winter rrecreation and spend money on food/drinks, fuel, and lodging. You should see some of the equipment that is used! Hey, bud. See above. Weekends are incredibly busy with people coming to their camps...and playing on their 4 wheelers, fishing, etc...just can't get away from people! Ha. During the week it is totally different and very quiet...it feels more isolated...which I love!

    Hi, all! This.is "blackrock" who used to post from West Michigan. Made the big move to the Tug this summer...so needless to say, I am excited for some 300 inch + winters and will definitely be joining in on your lake effect discussions. Nice shot, Bo! Foliage is behind here...but has exploded in color the last couple days.

    Hi, all. I have been perusing your forum since moving to the Tug Hill Plateau this summer. Can't wait for winter to start! Nice shots of the ADKS. Similar situation here as to what many of you are reporting. The color show has seemed really slow...but all of a sudden...Poof! The past two days have been quite the change.

    We had lightning, heavy rains, and quite some gusty winds up here on the Tug. Fall colors are very slow to appear with the September summer....
