As I write, I’m looking out at cornices of snow in my driveway. My pick-up truck looks like someone tried to bury it. Wind howls against the storm windows.
The Adirondack Weather site calls this a “historic” storm.
I can’t believe you’ll find too many storms in the record books that dumped over two-and-a-half inches of rain followed immediately by over a foot of snow around here. The combination makes this storm rare and exceptional.
It’s certainly a whopper. This weather map from the National Weather Service — which calls the winter storm “major” and “hazardous” — shows snow accumulations topping 20 inches.
Todd Moe reports that one caller from Indian Lake had measured more than two feet of new snow in their backyard. Yikes!
So what are you seeing? Big weather, or just another March day in the North Country?
