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.
