Feb 13 New York State braces for yet more snow – As 12 feet (4 meters) of snow were not 
enough, parts of New York State are bracing themselves for yet more snowfall this week!

This morning the National Weather Service posted an urgent warning of heavy snow for
western and central New York State. Up to a foot or more of fresh snow is forecast.

Parts of up state New York were said to be more akin to the Arctic, with only the tops of 
street signs and barn and church roofs visible. Mrs. Yerdon who measured the 358cms 
(141 inches ) of snow said that her home now resembled a giant marshmallow and said 
that if she wanted to walk down her driveway she would not only need her snowshoes 
but a bulldozer too!

Feb 12  Major Winter Storm Developing – A major winter storm developing today over the 
southern Plains will spread a swath of heavy snow from the northern High Plains to 
the Ohio Valley and severe thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast. The storm will bring 
heavy snow to the Northeast on Tuesday, with near-blizzard conditions developing in 
New England from late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Feb 12 Snow Just Won’t Stop in Upstate N.Y. – Intense lake-effect snow squalls that buried
communities along eastern Lake Ontario for nine straight days diminished Sunday – 
then started up again early Monday.
Unofficially, the squalls have dumped 12 feet, 2 inches of snow at Redfield. If accurate, 
that would break the state record of 10 feet, 7 inches of snow that fell in nearby Montague 
over seven days ending Jan. 1, 2002, said Steve McLaughlin, a meteorologist for the 
National Weather Service in Buffalo.

“We may get one more burst of snow. But then it’s over. Finally, some mercy,” 
McLaughlin said. However, the forecaster noted that a coastal winter storm expected 
midweek could bring another 6 to 12 inches.

Feb 12 Village May Set N.Y. Record for Snowfall – More than 11 feet! –  The village of Redfield
in upstate New York gets a lot of snowfall during the winter, but last week’s total – more 
than 11 feet, unofficially – might be an all-time record.
http://www.comcast.net/news/index.jsp?cat=GENERAL&fn=/2007/02/11/584581.html
 
Feb 10 Upstate N.Y. Snow Rises to 110 Inches – Parish, NY reached a milestone early Saturday 
with 100 inches of snow (more than 8 feet) during the past seven days. Late Saturday, the
 total had risen to 110 inches. A warning said 2 to 4 more feet of snow was possible.
Front doors are buried and footprints lead to second-story windows. Sidewalks that have 
been dug out look like miniature canyons.

Feb 9 Snow keeps coming in upstate New York
Up to four more feet possible – – With more than 100 inches of snow in some areas 
of upstate New York since last Sunday, forecasters now expect up to four feet more, 
as well as a longer blast lasting into next week.
Late Thursday the northern parts of Oswego County were accumulating as much 
as 3 inches per hour, said Dave Sage, a meteorologist with the National Weather 
Service in Buffalo. At times, the snow has fallen at a rate of as much as 5 inches an 
hour. The snowfall was accompanied by high winds, creating whiteouts and other 
problems around the state.

On Thursday, Gov. Eliot Spitzer declared a state disaster emergency in Oswego County.

Feb 8 Eight feet of snow expected in upstate New York – Six feet has fallen so far, with more 
expected. “It’s almost an unreal amount,” said Mayor Randy Bateman of Oswego. “We 
catch up when it stops, but then it just comes again, even heavier.”
“When you get 5 feet of snow in 24 hours, it’s tough,” said Oswego Fire Chief Ed Geers.

Whiteout conditions—the snow has been falling at a rate of 5 inches an hour at times
—forced closure of 15 miles of Interstate 81 between Central Square and Pulaski.

The bitter cold and slippery roads have contributed to at least 19 deaths.

In West Virginia, where as much as 9 inches of snow has fallen, officials called 
snowplow drivers out of retirement to clear the roads.

Meanwhile, ice on the Hudson River forced New York Waterway officials to shut down ferry service from Haverstraw to Ossining.

More than 600 schools were closed in the Cleveland area, where wind chills reached -20. All Milwaukee schools closed after wind chills dropped to almost 40 below.

The coldest spot was Embarrass, Minn., where thermometers plunged to -42.

Feb 3 Denver spending millions for ice removal At a news conference Friday, Mayor John
Hickenlooper and the city’s Public Works Department explained that the city is spending 
up to $10 million to hire outside help to clear ice from the streets. There are 14,000 blocks 
that need ice and snow removal.

Hickenlooper says the city’s strategy is focused on creating center lanes of 10 to 12 feet 
down side streets throughout Denver.

“January of 2007 has been our 10th coldest month on record.,” said Hickenlooper. “We 
know this is unique, this is a once in a lifetime event.” (I’m not so sure of that.)

Oklahoma, meanwhile, grappled with a second, trailing storm that kept roads slick 
and dangerous.

Jan 27 Record snowfall creating problems – Snow in the road, snow blocking driveways 
and snow piled up so high, it looks like a mountain: there is so much snow, Anchorage
 residents are getting fed up–not with Mother Nature, but with the way the city is 
handling it.
Anchorage‘s snow-removal budget of two million dollars is set by a yearly snowfall 
of under 70 inches. So far this season, Anchorage has seen more than 74 inches of the 
white stuff–more than normally falls in an entire winter. And there are still four months 
left in the snow season.

Jan 24 Massive snowfall in Anchorage
24 Jan 07 –– Having received more than 74 inches of snow this season, 
Anchorage, Alaska has been hit with twice the normal amount of snow 
that falls during the entire winter … and the season is only half over.
According to the city, it’s reaching a crisis level. The city can plow the 
roads, but where to put the snow? Two-lane roads are quickly becoming one.

“I’ve lived in Alaska since 1967 and I don’t remember ever having this much 
snow before,” said resident Joyce Elliston.

The city is already $2 million over budget for snow removal this season.

shivering has now spread to mid-Atlantic states and the Carolinas, with a mix of snow, 
sleet and freezing rain.
Scattered snow showers were also forecast across parts of the western Great Lakes 
and Upper Midwest, while another barrage of storms was set to bring up to 8 inches 
of snow to the Plains by late Friday.

Frigid conditions prevailed around the country. The entire state of Maine fell into 
the single digits or lower, reaching minus-16F in Caribou.

Snow fell briefly in normally sunny Malibu, snow plows cleared a major road through

Winter  wreaks havoc from Texas to Maine; death toll hits 55

Tens of thousands of electricity customers are likely to still lack power a week 
after the ice storm blamed for 55 deaths in nine states.
Houston and San Antonio were under rare ice warnings, while a 300-mile stretch 
of I-10 from Fort Stockton to San Antonio was closed because of fresh snow atop 
a layer of ice.

That same cold air mass moved into the Northeast Wednesday, where thermometers 
plunged to16 below at Caribou, Maine, and 19 above in New York City.

In Buffalo, Missouri, nearly all stores, gas stations and restaurants were closed 
Tuesday. “There are no services,” Mayor Jerry Hardesty said. “I’ve talked to residents 
who have lived here 50 years and nobody can remember it ever being this bad.”

The private forecasting company DTN Meteorlogix expects 2 to 6 inches of snow from 
the Texas panhandle to the Kansas border and 1 to 3 inches in southern Kansas this 
weekend.

Jan 14 Plunging temperatures threaten California citrus crop – As thermometers plunged
on Friday, the Governor of California declared a state of emergency. The freezing 
temperatures, which are expected to continue into early next week, have already 
destroyed millions of dollars of crops.

Monterey set a new record Friday night at 27F (-3C), one degree below the record 
set in 1963. Sacramento tied its record low of 22F (-6C) set in 1949.

Temperatures at Lancaster dipped to just 7F (-14C). Growers were building bonfires 
and setting up large fans to try and keep the cold at bay.

The cold snap even brought a rare dusting of snow to the Monclair, Chino and 
Riverside areas.
