    ok guys. This is driving me crazy. What does everyone think about the potential of Tues-Weds. night? Its lookin like a pretty big storm but... as in like the last couple, i'm kinda thinking we are goin to end up in the same sit... a few in. of snow, then ice and sleet. What do you guys think? From what I've read on the storm, its lookin as if its goin to stall around PA, bringin ice and snow there, then NY and VT are goin to get snow from Tues. morning on, then I read that it is supposed to set up shop over Conn., VT, and Mass., and bring heavy lake effect to all of NY from Buff., to Roc and Syr, and beyond. What do you call for precip? I am going to stick my neck out and say Tuesday, atleast 3-5 maybe 4-8 throughout the day with about .25 in. of ice, then Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon, I'll say uh, anywhere from 5-10 maybe 6-12 more on top of that bringin my estimate total to anywhere from 8-16 in.. Any thoughts? guesses?

    i check the NOAA site and the NWS has a storm watch for 6-12 in........ ok its been upgraded (just checked at 4:27) to a storm warning and now total acc. estimates are 8-12 and heaviest accum. tuesday night into wednesday with storm totals of 10-14 inches for areas within lake Ontario to about 20 miles south. Same is said for buffalo but with about a 1-3 inch less estimate, stating that higher tallies will be east, i.e. finger lakes area.

    I wish we had BAD forcasts like that! They usualy call for snow and we get nothing. Or as in the last few, a good 2 trip storms ends up with a few inches of slop and ice, Not good if you have a 3" trigger and salting isn't in the contract.

    I heard 16" by Wed. Why is it every storm this year has been like a spin of the wheel at Vegas! Come on baby! Scotty wants a 3 trip storm!!! Whoo Hoooo!!!

    I got 1- 1/2 trips in . Did some Tuesday night late, then the whole route Wed morning. Alot of the snow melted on the drives that fell on Tuesday, so it was very hit and miss. I heard we got a little over a foot, but that is actual snowfall. The most I probably hit was 10" Oh yeah! it was fun!!
