I like what I'm seeing.........

It looks like we have some more of the storm to come yet.  But I like what I'm seeing off to the west.  It looks like lake effect bands are starting to set up on the western lakes.  So a nice one two punch would be OK by me.

Slow going for now..........

It's been snowing all afternoon and it's adding up slowly.  Forecast is calling for it to snow till 7pm Sunday.  If it does, I'm putting us at about 8 to 10 inches at the rate it's been snowing so far.  But it does look like it going to increase over night.  So we'll have to see  what we wake up to in the morning.  Should be a good week of riding if you're able to get away.

The snow has started...........

It's 1pm and at this point it's snowing hard enough to say it's snowing.  There was snow in the air around noon, but not enough to say it was snowing.

We can only hope.....


* WHAT...Heavy snow possible. Total snow accumulations of 7 to
17 inches possible, highest south of Route 28.

* WHERE...Northern Herkimer and Hamilton Counties.

* WHEN...From Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.

* IMPACTS...Travel could be very difficult to impossible.

Here's my take............

For those of you that have been watching the blog for years, you'll know what I mean.  Right now it's cube steak and it looks like we may just end the holiday weekend with NY strip.  All depends on what we get from the next round of snow.

On another note.  I replaced the system on top of McCauley with my back up on Wednesday.  I'm sure you have seen the top and trail cams are out this morning.  Not sure why it went down and I'll do my best to get it back up before the snow starts to fly.

It's a start...........

The groomers went out packing the trails down and with the below zero temps tonight.  It should be the beginning of building the base back up.  Only saw like six sleds across the street getting gas today.  What was a shocker was seeing three sleds coming off of the trails last night, at the end of North Street.  When they went past me, all I could smell was high fax.  Forecast is still looking good for snow late Saturday and into Sunday.  Doesn't do much for this weekend, but looks like it should be a good week of riding coming up.

It's snowing..........

Woke up to snow this morning and at 7:30 we have 3 inches so far.  It's a good wet snow that is packing down when you step on it.  How much will we get is the thousand dollar question.  But we already got the high side of what the forecast was calling for and it looks like it's going to snow into the afternoon.  I also noticed on the radar that the western great lakes are starting to fire up some lake effect bands.  Who knows maybe we'll see some also.  I'll keep you posted.

1pm update:  Just took the yard stick out and we have between 4 and 5.  Looks like lake effect bands are starting to grow.  Crossing my fingers that we something from them.
