Got some friends in the Finger Lakes. The media gets people little crazy with 24 hour news these days. My buddies are kind of laughing acting like NY has never got snow before. We were an hour away playing a hockey game in Ithaca when blizzard of 93 started. Parents stopped for a few beers and burgers heading home after game, lol.Negative but I have property and family up there and I was supposed to be up there this weekend but it got postponed. The last "good one" they got was 2 winters ago. 35 inches at my mom's place, she was worried her deck might collapse from the weight. It was the ONLY time their McDonalds was closed in over 15 years.
And about the 10 days out thing, I think Conman here and lots of weather guru's predicted super storm Sandy 9-10 days before landfall.
