Snow Buries Upstate New York: Up To 100 Inches

February 9, 2007

Snow blowers attack walls of snow, and it's taking a team effort to dig out as winter has left much of upstate New York wondering when the snow will stop.

"Five, six days, you lose track" said Don Vosseller, an Oswego resident.

A state of emergency has been declared in Oswego County where 100 inches has already fallen in some areas.

Schools have been closed for five straight days.

"We haven't been in school for a long time" said kindergardener Abigail Weidman.

As parents try to cope with cabin fever.

"We haven't been anywhere in a car in more than a week" said Brandi Weidman, Abigail's mom.

Just to get out of the house folks are having to deal with several feet of snow just outside their door, and now high winds are making matters worse.

White outs are common as an army of snow plows struggles to keep the area from being completely shut down.

"With the winds, and the snow its not stopping, you just keep going for hour after hour after hour" said Lee Scheirer, snow plow operator.

And more snow is forecast through the weekend leaving folks along Lake Ontario's eastern shore literally spinning their wheels.
