It's Still "Springy!"

30 degrees and a little bit foggy and drippy,

but that won't last long!

From WKTV: "A heavy wet snowfall fell overnight, creating slick conditions for the morning commute. The steadiest snow will continue through 9AM, before tapering off to snow showers. Snow showers will continue through the majority of the day as some weak lake effect begins to develop. A few inches are possible in spots closer to the lake. See the snowfall map for details.

Cold weather arrives today, with temperatures plummeting into the teens by this afternoon. Winds will pick up from the west on the back end of a cold front, gusting over 30mph at times this afternoon. Wind chills will be in the single digits to below zero. With the morning slush followed by plummeting temperatures, a flash freeze is in the cards. Icy spots will likely develop on untreated surfaces.

Cold weather continues this week, with heavy lake effect along the Tug hill Wednesday through Friday. Snow showers continue into the weekend, with a bit of a warmup. No major storms in the horizon."


Yesterday was delightful!

The temperature was in the mid-thirties, and a real "Spring thaw" began.

A beautiful Valentine door appeared on the Babbott Avenue hame of Bonnie Bechy and her daughter!

Mud and Puddles everywhere.
Wayne Stanbro of the Waterville DPW - working in shirt sleeves! - was clearing a drain on West Bacon Street.

Down on Route 12, the State was pushing back or removing snowbanks along the west side of the highway between CVS and the underpass.

The mailbox is still there!


Connie wrote to say that there had been a hen pheasant at the Bocko birdfeeder and........

............ for the first time, a flock of Redpolls!


Early in the day there were a great many Mallard Ducks in the little pond at the foot of Grant Hill.

Later on, I went over to Oriskany Falls to check on ducks in the canal: yes! there were many mallards there, as well!


Directly across Madison Street from the canal, a "painted lady" was wearing icicle trim.

For fear that too great an amount of snow and ice had accumulated on the roof of the market, a major shoveling-off was taking place.


I was REALLY looking for groups of youngsters making use of the warm weather and perfectly packable snow to build snowmen (or ladies) and construct old-fashioned forts.

None; anywhere.

That was disappointing!



Three Years Ago, we had almost no snow, but a spectacular ice storm!

(One of my all-time favorite photos.)

On Sally Road.


From the O-D: "Proposed School Aid for 2011-12"

"A story on Page 1B Saturday inadvertently listed this year’s state aid figures for area school districts instead of the proposed aid figures for 2011-12 that were included in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget last week. Here are the correct numbers.

* Waterville Central School District

Total 2010-2011 funding: $8,984,884
