So far..........

So good.  We got up to 38 today, but we did dodge the R just about all day.  At 6:30 there is some R coming down, but it's not very heavy.  But on the bright side the temps have dropped 4 degrees in an hour.  So my guess would be the R will be turning back to snow very soon.  All the forecasts are calling for snow tonight.  It's just a matter of how much.  Let me update this at 6:40.  Winds have picked up and it is back to snow!  Hows that saying go...If you don't like the weather in Old Forge...wait five minutes it will change.

Today's Video for..............

  3. Hi Steve,

    Just wanted to say thank you for keeping us updated as to the weather and trail conditions. We can always count on you to steer us in the right direction. Even if we can't ride, it always nice to come up and enjoy the area and our friends that we have known for many years now! Thanks again!

    Looking forward to coming up this Thursday afternoon and enjoying an extended weekend!

    3. No you can voice your thoughts as much as you want. But when you start with the "HE" stuff or the "JUNK HGWY DEPT" it's going to get deleted. You may also want to get a new yard stick. Because we got more like 4 to 6 inches and yes it was heavy wet snow. Enough that the State Police where on the radio calling dispatch to get the plows out.

    4. Hey Steve, I read that guy's reply to 1:07 PM's post. The guy up there explained it to him in a nice way and it's probably the truth. Why did you remove his comment when it was fair and just telling how it was up there? With no snow expected through the weekend, I think that gives people an idea what's going on up there & not from the liar's center's BS.

    6. Plain and simple. If you want to bitch about the Highway Dept or the way they plow the roads call them or the Town Offices. This site wasn't set up for that. It was set up to inform people about the trails and what happened with the weather. There are some days that it is a flip of a coin if the plows needed to go out, but today wasn't one of them.

    7. If people feel that the infomation provided by the OF infomation center is not reliable/untrue/
      false, ect. Then why do they waist there time in
      reading it and then come on here to complain about it, and make rud remarks about others.
      Or, is it just so simple that they do not have a life, and this is the only way to get a rise.
      They make this site into a circus, and take away from its true purpose.
      People get a life, and stop with the BS.

    8. You are a moron!! People are just telling everyone if they know the info from the town liars are just a bunch of crap. Its very helpful to hear how the trails are from other riders. Riders have NOTHING to gain from speaking the truth. The town on the other hand loses a ton of money if the trails suck. So of course they lie.

  7. I'd say 6" from about 7:30PM Monday (when it turned over from light mist to wind cranking snow) to 9AM Tuesday was the real total here in town. Picked up another inch or two during the day today as well. Trails were great....roads OK for the most part but why Big Moose Road was plowed so low around 10AM is beside me. Some think the plow assumed another 2-3 inches was gonna fall but still this was a real grind down all the way to Stillwater. I don't think many people know where to find the good riding and on which days. Works for me as I do and seem to more time than not have excellent mid-week rides. The video is hopping onto the lake (not sure the name) from the north side heading south between Long Lake and Raquette.

  8. I'm heading south tomorrow....Trackside always does a great job and nobody goes that way. Boonville and beyond hopefully. Anyone else going that way or want to ??

    I haven't been around here much because it's ridiculous for the most part - no clue about the Pinkypoo thing and what that is but I'm guessing it's not good...haha
