This snow is sticky enough for a base. I bet you could almost get a few slow runs in on your local sledding hill.

Love the snowfall. Sorry to hear about all the trouble it's causing. Sometimes I wish we could just get 2 in., although 22 here is welcome.

That's probably right- those lake effect storms are so localized, you could get 2 feet in one spot and then drive 2 miles down the road and barely have a dusting.

This storm was so wierd that you could actually walk from no snow to 6" in less than 100 yards.

This isn't a good event folks. Thousands of trees destroyed, damage everywhere is enormous. Power won't be restored to everyone for days.

Where I live it's sunny but cold. Not even a flake has dropped.

More fun coming: RAIN
All that snow is shortly going to get rained on. Look out for flooding.

Rain? September was one of the rainiest ever for this area. Something like 13" above normal. Fall is one of the nicest times of the year around here. Beautiful blue skies, colorful foilage, steelhead running in the area streams, fall Walleye fishing at it's best. Not this year.

Ya, we need some more rain.

One of the places I lived as a kid was Orchard Park (used to watch fireworks at the fairgrounds before they built the Bills football stadium). The lake effect dumps we used to get have always been fond images and memories.

We used to ski every weekend from first T-bar to last (then came the chairlift!) at a place called Kissing Bridge and another I don't recall. Is the other ski area Holiday Valley?
TIA

Kissing Bridge, Holiday Valley and Holimont.

KB hasn't changed much.

Tht's a great picture, JHR. You can he is really skiing and that the conditions are "powder" by the plume of cold smoke behind his boots.

I saw this kind of cover referred to as "fast grass" on another website. Is that one in Physicsman's list yet? I think he has "dust on crust" but what about just "dust"?
