johnpma,

I see the buckets in your avatar, it might be awhile for our sugar season. I know a couple of guys that started tapping this past weekend, they said the snow was still very deep in the woods; they were sinking in a foot with snowshoes. The snow in the woods is up past my waist with no snowshoes! Forecast is above freezing and sunny all week, below freezing at night. Might be a good week for a run, but the snow is deep and the ground is likely frozen.

I can see Ontario from NNY
The snow in Lewis county was 21 feet this year, below normal but high for the whole country as the Watertown 7 News had stated. It seemed like we had snow everyday for weeks, but only an inch or so during most events. The cold made it dry and did it drift! I had drifts over some of my five foot tall fence lines, which meant the eight foot fences were only 3 foot exposed. Thankfully the deer didn't walk into the orchard!

Wow. Hard to visualize that with trees putting on leaves here. It hit 70F today. I was working all day in a t shirt.

Yes, that's the same place. I've seen that footage; very interesting. I measured the snow in the back yard today:
