The real"snowbelt" is just east of pulaski and the 81 corridor, like Altmar/Orwell area, elevation between 500-800'ASL.. Unfortunately you won't find much out that way.. This obviously doesn't include the last couple garbage years.. Outside of that it depends on the year, some years Fulton has had 50" more than mexico and vice versa..We are at the mercy of the wind direction lol

Watching ovechkin tonight. Sabres been on fire lately. Great game so far 

They have been unwatchable for the last 3 years.

 Now I’m watching most of the games and really enjoying seeing them develop and improve.

Getting rid of you know who and getting Granato are the best things to happen to them in years.

So the parish house was a no go. One thing I've learned in this area, basements or any foundation below ground is a negative. Completely different than philly area, this area and drainage is terrible. Anyways, curious to get yours and @TugHillMatt thoughts on these 3 houses im looking at. These are in the rome area. 1 is about 9.5 miles northeast of rome or about 4 iles nw of holland patent. Nice house, it's up on a mtn, elev about 1250. The other is about 2 miles northwest of remsen, elev about 1350. Final one is about 2 miles west of west leydon, elev 1560. Whats nice about the west leydon house, its in the heart of the tug, but only 16 miles from Rome, which is hell of a lot better than lowville to watertown.

West Leydon house, for sure. Good snow retention there too. The one located near Holland Patent will bring you the same issues you had near Lowville, with even less average snowfall.

Interesting, the nws burlington 30 yr avg map shows the holland patent and remsen area averaging more than lowville.

Doubtful. The Utica to Rome area actually misses out on Lake Effect MANY times. The average there is 80 to 100 inches.

Snow wise, West Leyden is easily the winner. Definitely pretty rural, but like you said it’s not that far from Rome.

I would guess that greater than 95% of houses in upstate have a basement. I would never ever consider purchasing a house without one. The amount of stuff in my basement is pretty ridiculous. It’s such valuable space. 
 

I will say that my basement will flood within hours without supplemental pumping in the event of a power outage,  but I’ve got redundant systems installed and have had little issue over the years.

Do you worry about mold and what not down there with the dampness? Or is it not really damp anymore

I run a dehumidifier whenever it is warm enough to do so which is typically April though early November. During that time, it probably clears close to 70 pints of water everyday. Then during winter the house is so dry there is no moisture concern.  Keeping a good coat of sealer on the walls will also help. It’s manageable with just the most basic amount of effort in my opinion.

Same here for my basement.

Tarheels baby! First ever tournament meeting between UNC and Duke.. This has been a great tournament so far, lots of upsets lol

I think this is what the NCAA likes to see.  Get some upsets in the earlier rounds but then still end up with Blue Bloods in the Final Four.  UNC/Duke, Kansas/Villanova.  The ratings should be excellent.

 

Great run for St. Peter's.  Looks like they just ran out of gas in the end.  Sometimes those Cinderella runs end with a thud like we saw yesterday.  Definitely got a lot of exposure for the school and it appears that Shaheen Holloway will have a shot at the Seton Hall job if he wants it.

Crazy goal just now against Hawks. Sabres were down 4-0 and came back to win it

 

I couldn't believe it when I saw it this morning.

I went to bed after the first period. They were down 3-0.

I figured after 5 consecutive OT games, and a back to back road game, this just wasn't going to be their night.

Amazing.  What a change of character for this team.  Bye bye Jack we don't miss you at all.

First time since 1989 they were down 4 goals and won. Just a crazy game, we outplayed Chicago badly the 2nd and 3rd period after a terrible first. This team is different then the last few years, such a character win.

NFL owners have approved a modified proposal for overtime that will guarantee each team a possession, but only for postseason games. The vote took place Monday afternoon at the annual league meetings.

The current rule, which allows a team to win on the opening possession of overtime if it scores a touchdown, will continue for regular-season games.
