THIS BAND WILL ALSO EXTEND INTO THE NORTHERN HALF OF LEWIS COUNTY. HEAVY SNOW IS ALSO EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE TUG HILL REGION DURING THE DAY.

EXPECT SNOWFALL RATES OF 1 TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR TO DEVELOP IN THE MOST INTENSE PORTION OF THIS BAND. IN ADDITION TO HEAVY SNOWFALL... STRONG WINDS WILL CREATE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES WITH SIGNIFICANT TO SEVERE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW.

We have been stuck in the single digits here for days. I was excited because it was supposed to get up to 28 degrees today, but now we've got a blowing snow advisory that is supposed to drop the temps down below zero again. And it's not even officially winter yet...

We've been having -24C for over a week now and it's snowing to boot.

We finally got around to putting heated cables on our roof to get rid of the dangerous icicles that form on our eaves.

You could do the whole roof with it and have it attached to a device that will turn it on when the temps drop to a certain degree. That way - snow or not - the roof is looked after. Saves time travelling and the chance of falling off the roof. (well - once the things are on anyway)

Wow, I heard on the radio today that the Tug Hill region has been getting pounded by the white stuff!

I would love to have a place in Lowville or around that area, complete with snowmobile....I LOVE geting out in snowy weather!!!!!
