    Weather stations say between 2-4 or 3-5 tonight and 1-3 tomarrow! I'm ready but nothing is delivered. I guess I'm going to by busy all night. Hope I can get pic's hooking up.

    Tonight: Occasional snow, mainly after midnight. Low around 24. North wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.

    Shifting bands of lake snow tonight will drop 2 to 4 inches of snow areawide with locally higher amounts near the lakeshore. Low 25.

    Wonder whats going to happen. I posted the weather's "guess" to see who is right when it is all over with. Did that quite abit last year and then found who was usually right.

    We used to get snow in nj, I remember one year we needed a backhoe on my road(private) to move the snow cause we ran out room on the sides.

    I don't have any pictures but I was out last night and today.

    Bout 8-10 inches of very heavy and very wet snow around Cherry Creek and about 12 inches in the hills near Ellicotville.
    Snow is coming down pretty good right now in Gowanda.

    Lot of my drives are gravel and it hasn't frozen up yet. Combined with the wettest snow possible made for some interesting plowing ... sometimes i was pushing the snow and sometimes it was pushing me :dizzy:

    It is very localized and coming down in heavy bands. You could run into 10 inches in one spot and 10 miles up the road there's only 2 inches.

    It does not look like those of us close to the city are going to get much at all. I would think an inch accumulating through tomorrow night.

    I really need to move to the hills south of the city. We rarely get good storms up in the northtowns.

    The snow isn't supose to start until after midnight for me. Suck's cause I get up at 2:30 so if I do have to plow (one account is 1 1/2 trigger its a hospital). So i hope I don't plow and it fill's back in! If all else fail's and it doesn't snow at all I have to salt. It's wet out and all froze!

    2" would be enough to push 95% of my accounts, and for you that's just a quick salt run:cry:

    Who's better than you!?!

    Was snowing quite hard this afternoon in Caledonia, visibility was probably 1/8 mile at times. Unfortunately the snow didn't stick to the roads or driveways. Not snowing anymore.
