It’s a big deal when you can set new snowfall records despite the global warming. Actually this wont be a world record 20,000 years ago the snow and ice were 2 miles thick right here. This record we will break is only over the last 100 or so years.
It might b a warmer lake.

Well it wasn’t too warm last week it was froze all the way to Canada. That puts a end to the lake effect snows pretty good.

A high school friend was the first person to walk across lake Erie. Now they lock you up if you try it.

Nothing dramatic this morning in MSP Minnesota.

Was -4F at 8:00 AM with sun and no wind. I had an 8:00 Drs appointment and did not wear a jacket (tuck-under garage). Now, at 11:20 AM it is -10F. with bare streets and 2"to 4" of snow on the grass.

Just boring similar weather ahead for a few days. - Off to get my car washed and cleaned.

Well as of today we broke the all time snowfall record for Erie. The old record was 149” and we got at least 5-6” over night so we should now be around 155”.

Also way out in front in the snow globe snow race Syracuse isn’t to 100” yet.

Snow plow just came thru so time to plow the driveway.

Bud, have you had enough snow yet?
We got 10” of wet heavy stuff over night just got in from plowing.

Erie is at 167.7” now Syracuse is at 124.6. That would be a winner most years. We are crushing the Erie record this year. Only 2 cities over 100 so far.

My big chore is going to be getting my gravel back into the driveway. These wet snows really take it out.

Ya I’m ready for spring. I have my bike ready to go and I need to get some exercise. I’m trying to find a old roto-tiller I can fix up. No one seems to ever sell them. Looking forward to getting the garden in also.

Temp is in the low 30”s and woke up to 10”+ new snow over night. And expecting another foot or more today. The ice melt on Lake Erie has turned the lake effect snow machine back on.


We are at 188.6 crushing the old Erie winter Record and we are within a few inches of the USA record. Right now we are in third Syracuse and Buffalo both had 190 something inches way back. Looks like we could hit the 200” mark.


Almost noon and haven’t seen a plow down our road yet. Once they get thru it is off to plowing for me.

Yesterday we got 4.5 inches of snow and that brings the winter snowfall to 198.5” and the all time record Buffalo NY holds at 199.4”


Our last chance to take the top spot is coming up tomorrow when the low passes thru. The prediction is .5-2.5” so we have a shot at it all we need 1”.


Last night they did a survey on the news and 65% of the people said go for it even though they are sick of snow.


I inch for bragging rights haha.
