    Redwood, NY (about 25 miles south of my hometown of Watertown) has reported 123 inches of snow (over 10 feet) from this storm. Now NWS forecasters are saying the area could get another 4 feet of snow. That's insane!!!

    Yea, that's my shitty luck.

    I booked a ticket to upstate new york to see the Niagara/Watertown area in snow in late december...and it's the first goddamn year in a decade with no snow atthe time we went. No kidding. It was warmer in Watertown, NY than Atlanta.

    What a waste.

    Great...the second winter I am gone from NY, and this awesome storm happens...

    OSWEGO, New York (AP) -- While the northern Plains and Northeast shiver in dangerously cold temperatures, the folks in upstate New York are keeping warm shoveling snow -- lots of snow.

    Since Sunday, the small towns of Parish and Mexico have recorded more than 6 feet of snow, and forecasters with the National Weather Service say it isn't over yet.

    Another 2 feet or more of heavy lake-effect snow was expected Thursday for the communities along eastern Lake Ontario, and more squalls are likely through the weekend. (Watch snowfall in upstate New York that's created both beauty and frustration )

    "We're just trying to keep up. It's almost an unreal amount," said Mayor Randy Bateman of Oswego, where 70 inches of snow had fallen by Thursday morning. "We catch up when it stops, but then it just comes again, even heavier." (Read lake-effect snow alerts for New York)

    Five inches per hour
    Whiteout conditions -- the snow has been falling at a rate of 5 inches an hour at times -- forced state police to temporarily close Interstate 81 between Central Square and Pulaski, a stretch of about 15 miles.

    Travel advisories against unnecessary travel were posted for Oswego and its neighboring counties. Mexico officials renewed a snow emergency declaration, and many government offices were closed.

    Schools were closed for a fourth day in Oswego and Mexico. (See a map of forecasted lake-effect snow through Friday)
