Nah! Nah! Missed Us!

We didn't miss it by much. Just north of us got pounded. We got a few inches - a light dusting by upstate NY standards.
It was as they say, a good ol' fashion lake effect pounding -- a snowburst -- 60 to 72 inches of snow (confirmed). Put simply, they got hammered -- all of this while a major lake effect research project is going on east of Lake Ontario.

The band of lake effect snow that was east of Lake Ontario is now a shadow of its former self. It's south of Syracuse and has broken up into smaller bands of snow.

[...]In the wake of this lake effect event, parts of Oswego, Jefferson and Lewis Counties are now under 2 to 5 feet of snow.

The Framer's Almanac Pegs Syracuse as the Worst Winter Weather City
5 Worst Winter Weather Cities

1. SYRACUSE, NEW YORK “Cold,” “clammy,” “snowy” are three great ways to describe Syracuse weather—from October through April. Winter starts very early and lasts late, with plenty of snow and extremely cold temperatures. Winter daytime temperatures average in the lower 30s, with nighttime lows in the teens, but temperatures as low as minus 25°F have been recorded. Snow also makes winter uncomfortable in Syracuse, averaging almost 120 inches per season. During the winter of 2009–2010, Syracuse was again the winner of the prestigious “Golden Snowball Award,” celebrating the city with most snowfall for the winter in upstate New York, beating out such snowy cities as Buffalo, Rochester, Albany, and Binghamton. Syracuse also made our Farmers’ Almanac “10 Worst” list in 2002. Another reason why this city makes the worst winter weather list — December, January, and February are typically gloomy, with Syracuse receiving only one third of the sunshine possible, because of considerable cloud cover.

Makes me proud. We deserve it....

Egypt is our b***h.

Yeah, the Valley of the Kings has nothing on you guys… both the victims of global cooling.

LL - can you spare a few space heaters?

WoFat said...

Why would you want to heat space? Let the space-stations heat them own damn selves.

Global warming?

+1 on Wofat, LOL. No space heaters. They're on their own.

This is what happens when you don't have freezing temperatures for long periods of time. Space heaters are usually small electric heaters that you can move from room to room.
