Woke up to a slush sandwich in the driveway. Layer of ice, inch of snow, freezing rain, 3 inches of snow and still falling.

Ski conditions appear to be improving if they would just NOT GROOM IT OUT after today!

A little bit of Ice 9 would be helpful now; it's just so hard to control it.

Not to shabby, if you could only keep it from raining in between , but down here in Pa. we're jealous.
My job is right on the ridge overlooking Lake Erie about half way between Westfield and Mayville. It's nicknamed "Snow Ridge" for obvious reasons. I litterly couldn't see thirty feet when I was attempting to get there this morning. My house where I live is just outside Bemus Point near Chautauqua Lake. It's let up some at this moment but I have a solid 6" since I shoveled my walk two and a half hours ago. Holiday Valley is a 45 minute drive East of here. They are at the tail end of the Lake Effect activity usually depending on the direction of the wind and the strength of the wind. They need a strong Northwest wind across the Lake for snow whereas we rely more on a more Westerly flow. My house almost always gets more snow because of that. We have received at least two more feet of snow here than HV. HV needed the snow because it was nothing more than a skating rink. Boilerplate everywhere. Heavy rains and cold took a beautiful base and turned it into very hard ice that only the best of carving skis shine on. Hasn't been fun. This should be a nice stretch of good skiing for a while though. We could get another foot or two this next four days and the temps are going to be well below freezing the next week at least.

i'm going skiing tomorrow if I can't work. (if I can get there )

Well, my Silverado did get me there to an epic WNY powder day. The official total that fell in Ellicotteville was 27.5 inches.

It was light blower powder and such an ease to ski in.

Today, it's still snowing but this is a general storm that has dumped 6 inches so far and still coming down.

Rode the trails all day on my snowmobile. Nice

You live in the NE and you claim to have never seen a wintery mix before? You been living under a rock?
