Yesterday was another "Spring" day: more ice melted at "Lake Hanover" ....

........... the pond on Sally Road was full ............

.......... villagers enjoyed the sunshine ........

......... and I almost expected to see Fr. Tom out on the front porch of the St. Bernard's rectory planning his garden display!

The new windmills at Spring Farm Cares, north of Paris, were whirling ......

......... Main Street certainly looked different that it had a week ago ....

........... and what snow was left was really grungy!


It's 26 degrees.
We have about 3" of new snow and it's still snowing.

We're in a narrow but concentrated band of "lake effect" snow, shown very clearly HERE.

WKTV's forecast: "Wind Advisories have been posted for most of the region. Winds should subside later Tuesday afternoon. Some sunshine is also possible Tuesday, with temperatures in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees.
A new storm system, a clipper, will move into CNY on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. This one looks a bit more potent, and it also appears to be tracking further south. Moderate snowfall accumulation will be possible with this, especially south of Route 365 after Midnight Tuesday night. This storm will usher in quite a change. Temperatures should drop a bit Wednesday afternoon and evening, through the 20s and into the teens. Snow showers will continue through the afternoon, and begin to become more isolated for New Year's Eve night. The celebrations should go off without much of a hitch, but do bundle up as cold, windy conditions are expected. In fact, New Year's Day may not see high temperatures get out of the low to mid teens."

(Blame me: I left my car out!)


Drive Safely and Have a Great Day!

Forewarned is forearmed!

More snow pictures tomorrow!
