Great Pictures of Oswego, Mexico and Other Snow Pounded Towns
There are so many unbelievable pictures of the major snow event that is going on still up in Oswego, Fulton, Mexico, Parish and a lot of other towns and cities between Syracuse and Watertown. Channel 9, WSYR has been having people send in their snow storm pictures and they have quite a few posted at their website at TV 9 Syracuse They also have some raw footage of the lake effect that has and is still pounding them. Hopefully they will get a good break soon. Albany who has a solid 6+ inches so far is sending some plows and other equipment to help out with the snow.
NYCO, whose blog keeps track of what's going on in the CNY area has a good video on the Silent Edge site showing some white out conditions in Palaski. Check it out at http://www.silent-edge.org/wp/index.php She also has a link to the USA Today weather guys section that has a mention of the Golden Snowball contest and a couple others worth checking out. You can check out The Weather Guys section at USA Today which has some great weather info and facts with a fun spin to it at http://blogs.usatoday.com/weather/
There is a possibilty that come tonight or tomorrow that the lead might be switching again. Syracuse has picked up enough to barely slide by Buffalo by a few inches depending on how Buffalo's snow stats come in. The lake effect that has been hammering the Oswego and Fulton area's has finally drifted south enough to Syracuse and has been hanging around awhile now. No where's near as intense as it has been up north but still some good bursts of snow and a steady light snow. Hopefully it will stay to the South for awhile not to put Syracuse in the lead, but to give the North a break. They have to be past the point of exustion by now and my guess is that the snow plow drivers and tow trucks haven't been getting much sleep the last week. Have a great weekend and for you Northerners, lets hope it's a snow free weekend.
Oh, one last thing. Wish me luck on the new lottery Raffle to Riches. Lets try that mind thing where we all think winner, kind of like the Super Bowl ;) The drawing took place this morning and if you were one of the fools like me that bought a ticket, Good Luck!
