Snow Day

First off Snow sucks. But I did get my first two hour delay on Fort Drum...so that part was almost worth it. I went back to bed. Got about 10 inches at my house and 16 or so at work, very heavy wet crap and the ground is saturated so it was a mess!

Well he does need a lot of room for all that brass he has whored. While I am nowhere near NY it is about 15* colder here than normal.

When it comes to driving during the winter, here is the list from best to worst to drive on:

1. Snow Pack
2. Black Ice
3. Slush

I don't really agree with that one...Black Ice is the worst, cause it blends in you can't see it until your spinning.

Believe me, I know this is just the beginning of 100 plus inches.
Little primer on where I live I am 20 miles from the Tug.


The Tug Hill region is renowned for its excessive snowfall. One interesting architectural feature related to this phenomenon can be found locally in some hunting camps: supplemental, second-floor entry doors. These are located directly above the ground-level front door, and such apertures are used when so much snow has accumulated that the ground-level door can not be accessed. Snow depths commonly reach five feet or more, on the level, and vastly deeper amounts are routine. The location of the region in relation to Lake Ontario often creates ideal conditions for lake effect snow. The Tug Hill hamlet of Montague owns the single day New York State record of snowfall with 77 inches (6 feet, 5 inches). Another Tug Hill village, Hooker (in Lewis County) holds the state record for annual snowfall. Hooker also received an extraordinary accumulation of snow in the winter of 1976-77, with a total accumulation of 466.9 inches approximately 39 feet.

On February 10, 2007 the National Weather Service reported that the Town of Parish had received 100 inches of snow over a seven day span, while the village of Redfield received 141 inches of snow over a ten day span of February 3-February 12, 2007.
