The Lake Erie snow machine got us good yesterday. We got at least 2 foot.
I haven't checked yet today. probably another 6 inches.

snow was really "local" Here in Dunkirk (a bit south along the lake)
we are about forty miles away from Lori and have just enough to catch in
the grass. Perhaps 1/2 inch!Ran

Subject: In the National Spotlight
Well, we made the national new AGAIN!
Two years in a row we have had such tremendous amounts of snow fall in
short order that Buffalonians are in the new again. The Weather Channel
visited us yesterday to announce that Buffalo has been the lucky recipients
of 4-5 feet of snow. Here in Tonawanda, a northern suburb of Buffalo, plows
and snowblowers are keeping good pace, but other ares in WNY have been
the winners of even more spectacular amounts of the powdery white mulch
and are in a State of Emergency! The
snow odessy began on Christmas Eve with a healthy two foot accumulation
in a 5 hour period. Up until that day, we had less than one inch of total
snowfall here. The gods were merciful on Christmas day and decided everyone
should be able to rest for a bit. The rest was short however, and my aching
muscles are testiment enough for the labors of what lie ahead on the 26th
and 27th. We are still in the throes of this storm, and the prediction
is for another 12 - 20 inches overnight. I can only hope and pray that
we get the full 20 inches so that my office will remain closed tomorrow
and I can work on our local society newsletter! I
am once again offering free white mulch to anyone willing to come and claim
it!PS Bring a shovel..... Lori
