Ground/Streets covered here. I am bringing my son to Syracuse airport tomorrow morning at 0630 for an 8 am flt out to his base in Seattle area. Kind of hoping they are right that the band shifts a tad north by then.

Just got finished with the first heavy snow shower of the event. Fresh covering on everything. Roads are going to be nasty...flash freeze.

Speaking of that, I can already hear the plows/salt trucks going down the roads. They do a great job of staying on top of them here.

The temperature is down to 30 here. Anybody that depends on plowing to make money has had a slow season so far. They should be making up for lost time over the next 36 hours.

If they do seasonal contracts, they've had a few pretty easy years. I imagine more clients are looking for "per plow" after paying for what were weak snow seasons.

I’m still up on Lake Ontario until tomorrow and the wind is roaring. I’ve never spent time right on the lake during winter. It’s a whole different world and right up my alley. Some heavy squalls popping through every few minutes.

Remember a sleet storm in the late 80s early 90s that dumbed 4 inches of sleet in roc. Was insane. It is a bitch to drive in as well. Pulls you off road.

VD and St paddy's day 07 both featured 5-6" of sleet where I lived in Queens. Absolutely epic. Trillions of frozen ball bearings were a nightmare for plows.

Plowing that amount of sleet sounds like they are pushing glass. I remember hearing that when I lived in State College.

Valentine's Day 07 is the one I was talking about. Yes, truly epic.

For me, I believe 1994 was the year on Long Island had an Ice storm I will never forget, a crystalline paradise that stayed in tack for a few days. Temperatures were suppose to rise above freezing but a NNE wind kept it all Freezing Rain

 VD2.0 was epic here. 12+ from synoptic and about same from lake enhanced wrap around / LES. 24+ over 2.5 days. My son had school that first day. Sent home at noon in a fustercluck as it was pounding (as predicted). How times have changed...

The winter of 93-94 was the most epic winter of my childhood in Lancaster. Snowstorm...icestorm...snowstorm..ice storm. You could walk on top of the deep pack without falling through at all.

9:40PM  Heavy Snow in Cicero 29.3 degrees 3/4 inch new snow OTG

I've gotta say... I love having you in Cicero. We've got all the major north suburbs of Syracuse covered. You in Cicero, CNY in Brewerton, Syrmax in Clay (north side), and me in Bville. It's great coverage!

Glad to be part of this group; have to say I have learned much so far from you guys!

Not much sleeping next 24 hours for me.

Understanding wife who agreed to the move up here too!
