Pictures and Videos Of Some Snow Storms

There is a pretty good conversation with some good pictures going on in the Golden Snowball forum right now. Check out the posts and pictures at WeatherT posted some pictures that his brother in law took from New Haven. There are also some good maps and some good information about when the lake Erie freeze over and Tony has been keeping us updated on some of the totals from up north and the numbers just since Saturday blow all of our cities season totals away. This is one of the biggest snow events that I can remember. WeatheT by the way has a good site with great snow stats and info for the Fulton area. Check his site out at

New snow reports are out:

Oswego: 62"
Mexico: 57"
Parish: 54"

You can also checkout a picture of the Generals Sabre's hockey pre-game festivities and Tug Hill Tina from the Champion area came up with a phrase that I love "it's lake effecting pretty good" and it will be a keeper here at GSB. Tina also mentions she's starting to get a little battle weary from all the shoveling.

The general put together a video that I believe is from his work parking lot that is time lapsed showing some lake effect snow from February 3rd, 2007 and it's pretty cool.

Below is another video from showing the Buffalo blizzard of 1977 which gives you an idea how bad that storm was. It's from the book written by Erno Rossi. Visit for more information and to get your own copy of the book and extended, full length DVD by Erno Rossi.

I love YouTube :)

Both of these were great, and I know I'll be passing them along... On the first one tho', it's the first time I've ever noticed the counter going *down* instead of up!

Thanks for sharing these ~thumbs up icon here~

The General made both of them. I'm not sure how though. I'm sure he will stop by and explain ;) I agree to the thumbs up on the video's!

A guy from the National weather service was just on the weather channel talking about how to measure snow. He said that you should only measure snow every 5 or 6 hours, NOT every hour.

Doesn't that mean that the way Syracuse measures snow at Hancock is wrong?

Anon, No! The way I understand it and I could be wrong and it won't be the first time, all of the cities measure the snow the same way and report in intervals of hourly, 3 hours and 6 hours. In other words by measuring every hour, they will also be reporting the 6 hour period.

So on the chart there will be a spot for 1 hour readings, 3 hour reading and 6 hour readings.
