I have been there in the summer and in front of the maint. building for INT. 90 there is a huge wing plow. On it is painted something to the effect that they get over 135 inches of snow a year. Now I went up a week after the big lake effect snow I guess five or six years ago and the storm was two days and the effect went on for a total of just short of ONE WEEK. Just east of Oswego, NY and a little north a town got over 185 inches at one shot! The weather beaura showed two days later to measure the snow and it had started to settle. It came in under the 180 mark and the town folk were fit to be tied but "official" is what they used. When I went through Mexico,NY they had used a rotary snow plow like the big airports use to dig the town out. You hook a tractor and trailer up to this machine backwards and tow it till it is full. Then the next truck backs up the path and so on. I saw drifts that were well over 15 feet deep. That means the top window of the house is your new DOOR! I know out in the Rockies you get some deep stuff like this but in the east I was just dumb founded. The motel in Fulton,NY uses a 10hp snow blower up on their roof when the manager can"t get his office door open. That means the snow load is getting too much. That area up there is so pretty in the summer but I don"t think I want to play with that mess.

I live about 15 miles from Mexico. We have gotten a lot of snow sometimes in the 12 years I have been here, but never that much in one storm. Zach

I remember in I think it 2007 Mexico had over 100" of snow. We went to Williamstown to look at a tractor, dealer told us wait a week for the snow clean-up. Lol

In February 2007 (I think) we had 12 feet of snow in two weeks here in Orwell and the National Guard was brought into the hamlet to shovel out the intersection. Out here on the fringe we were assisted by the town payloader which came and pushed back our snowbanks and piled them up higher. Back then I was still plowing with a back blade so I could only pile snow 4-5 feet high at best.

I think we're both right it was February 2007, I see Orwell isn't far from Pulaski?? my brother goes there salmon fishing on Lake Ontario. I haven't been out that far yet but he tells me it's nice. I've been to Camden and Williamstown which isn't too far from you. The place was Kennedy tractor.

Have family in Mexico Ny.. Apple growers with upick berries just northwest on town. Worked helping them when I was a kid. Nice country in the summer. Lot of rocks in the soil, and it gets way to cold for me in the winter. Usaully only help picking apple till end of Oct before I was ready to head home to Florida.

Oh come on up as it's great here right now.

There are a few vids of 'lake effect snow Central square NY' on youtube but they are pretty lame. This is the town we pay school taxes to. Our zip code is Fulton NY.
A few people from work live in Fulton and they didn't come in for 3 days after the storm your talking about. It was the year before we bought this place. I'm sure happy Sadie, my 43 2N w/FEL runs mostly good so far.
