Thursday morning

It's Garbage Day. 19 degrees.

Just another inch or two of very light snow.

From WKTV: "*A winter storm watch is in effect for Oneida and Otsego County for Friday-Saturday*

Lake effect snow has dried up just in time for the morning commute. While some areas will still see snow covered roadways, the steady accumulation we've seen over the past few days is done for now. Partly to mostly cloudy today with highs in the upper 20s.

Clodus thicken up again tonight ahead of the next storm system. Some light snow will begin to fall after 3AM tonight.

A clipper system will combine forces with an Atlantic storm and produce a steady band of snow across Central New York Friday into Saturday. Accumulations at this point look to be in the order of a general 4-8".

Snow showers on Sunday before the weather turns rather quiet heading into the second week of January."

Early morning smiles from "The Fingernail Princess," Sharon Stiles, left, and Diane Cornish

at Sharon's table in "Totally-U" on East Main Street!

Afternoon smiles from Mary Beth and Michelle, enjoying the last of the afternoon sunshine before Winter returned.

The sun was shining on "West Hill" when I drove south from Paris on Daytonville Road.

Something about the clouds and the shadows on the snow-covered roofs of this barn made the scene resemble an Eric Sloane painting.........

......... but the bank of "snow clouds" was moving in from the West.


When I was in the Post Office parking lot, earlier in the day, I happened to glance up at the "observatory" on the house built by Julius Candee in the 1850s and I wondered, "Of all the towers or cupolas or observatories that there are on private homes in the village, how many people ever really went up there to look at the sky and clouds - or did they just like to look down on the rest of the world?"
