28 degrees and light snow at 10:30.

Please use caution walking on pavement: it's VERY SLIPPERY!

Yesterday Ione Barney sent me an E-note saying that she and Dave had an unusual trip to see their daughter in Ohio: " Waterville was the only village that had a WHITE Christmas in our travels this week...we were in Ohio with Lynn and family for Christmas. We were in Ohio for 10 days and no snow all that time. We came back Monday and NO snow in Ohio, Pa, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Clinton , or Deansboro......never a drop on the ground or in the air until we got to Waterville !!!! It's the first time in the 28 years that Lynn has been in Ohio that we have traveled to and from there without any snow."

However ................

this could be the day that Winter comes!

From WKTV: "Wind advisory in effect for Hamilton, Herkimer, Fulton, Montgomery, and Otsego County from 10AM this morning until midnight tonight.

A cold front will deliver big changes to our weather today bringing wind, cold, and lake effect snow showers. The front crosses through this morning bringing a round of rain and snow. Winds pick up and temperatures fall below freezing late this morning. A flash freeze on the roadways will take place late this morning and early this afternoon. Watch out for icy spots on untreated surfaces. Gusty winds along with lake effect snow this afternoon.

Skies clear out tonight and temperatures fall into the single digits! Dry and much less windy for Thursday with highs in the upper 20s. A light snowfall is possible again on Friday, perhaps mixing in with some raindrops. Highs in the upper 30s.

The weekend looks seasonably chilly with temperatures in the 30s. Another chance for snow showers late Saturday and early Sunday."


"Lake effect advisory for Madison, southern Oneida counties" from the Utica O-D.


From the Utica Observer-Dispatch

"Waterville students collect more than 6,000 items for charity."

In answer to a blog reader's query:

No - I don't know when the Garden Club's Lighting Contest / Judging
took place or, even, if it did at all.

Perhaps someone has a better answer?

The white stuff on the pavement? It is NOT soft snow!


More when it happens!

Have a great day, everyone.
