Almost..........

We've had snow in the air today and it was almost enough to cover things back up that at least it looks like winter again.  What we really need is one of those unpredicted blasts of lake effect to get things back into shape.  The biggest thing going on around here today, was a zone value not working right.  Besides that it's pretty quiet.

What to do...........

The switch sure flipped in just a few days this week.  It's hard to believe last Friday at this time the town was jumping like no tomorrow and this week it's a ghost town.  When things wind down at the end of a season, you have a list on what you want to do.  But when it's like this, you question what to do.  Because you really can't get into anything to big, as you don't know when it's going to snow again.

And it begins.............

Now it's the wait and see game.  The see how long it takes to get some fresh snow, so we can get back out riding again. The forecast isn't predicting any great amounts of snow in the near future, just and inch here and there.  But that doesn't mean it can't happen.  Look at last Wednesday, we got a half a foot to a foot and it wasn't even predicted.  I know there's one person confident that there's going to be more riding this year.  Because they went to the info center today and upgraded their weekly permit to a seasonal.

How can I put this?

The weather over night was the same as you do with a straw!  More later.............

It's over.........

The R is over and now it's wait for the temps to drop back down.  It's not pretty out there, but it could of been worse, we could of had a complete wash out.  I did a scan of the parking lot this morning and then late this afternoon so you can see the difference between the two.  I'm not seeing anything in the forecast to jump up and down about.  But don't ever give up hope when it comes to lake effect.  All we need is the cold temps, which are returning and for the wind to line up right.

Boy oh Boy..............

It's all Phils fault! He didn't see his shadow today and according to him spring will be early. You want to talk about quiet.  Come to the north country and you'll see it first hand.   I called one of the other motels today to ask them a question and I got their machine.  Come to find out they took off for the day and went to Utica.  It's that quiet and good for them they got a day away.  Because when the snow returns we'll all be flat out again.  So what's different in today's video?

Looking worse..........

The forecast for Wednesday is looking even worse.   As they increased the amount of R for the day and it could make things really ugly fast.  With an inch of R and the melting of the snow, there could be flooding going on also.  One of the big things that hurt us over night was the wind.  Just like blowing on hot soup, a warm wind eats snow faster than a warm day.
