I haven't done a weather post in a little while so here goes. Doesn't look like there's much going on around here does it?
But check out the satellite map.
Behold the power lake effect. We're recording snowfall in feet 'round these parts now. Warming trends put the temperature into the 10s and 20s (wind chill makes it feel like 1s and 10s). We're due to warm up to almost freezing sometime tomorrow with 10 to 20mph winds.
That slightly brown bump on the map below immediately south of Watertown and east of I81 is the Tug Hill Plateau. Also known as the snow belt. They've gotten the worst of the snow so far.
It's a good thing that the winter has been so mild until now. If we had had to endure this after enduing a more typical October, November, December and the first part of January in addition to the weather we're getting now I'd be really desperate for spring. As it is I'm only a little desperate for spring. Every day it's a little bit brighter at 6:30 AM while I wait for the alarm clock to go off and every 5:00 PM is a little brighter than the one before it.
