Storm has passed, it was called a "Blizzard" !    I seem to recall along with a few others growing up here in the North Country that this Storm was just another Winter Storm !  We had a lot of winter Storm like this, an we also got a lot of Snow !
My Man I hired to snowblow the driveway and sidewalk came again yesterday and cleared out the Snow again !  We got a lot of snow in a short time !
Blowing and drifting Snow made it rough to clear the snow and hard to see where it was done !
Neighbor outside shoveling off her deck again !   about 4 feet of snow so far !
The yellow circle is where we are and it is way below what we got !
The other neighbor trying to snow blow thru 4 feet of snow and having a problem getting buried !
Lewis County Sheriff talking to one of the Amish Men on the Horse about his Community and how things were going !
Back when we just had a mere 17 inches of fresh snow on the back deck !
My Honey clearing Snow from the Bird Feeders so our Feathered Friends can eat !
Snow Plow coming back thru, just as soon as you clear out your driveway entrance and drive way and sidewalk, The Village comes back thru and "Fills in back in " !
Today, Storm Over, My Honey checking the roof for snow load,  Snow Load here in Zip Code 13628 is 65 PSF^, some places on Tug Hill the Snow Load is up to 75 to 80 PSF^.
Front of roof looks good, no black spots of heat loss, believe it or not, the house and basement are about 8 to 10 degrees warmer with the Snow, the Snow is a Good Insulation !  Fresh snow is an excellent insulator. Ten inches of fresh snow with a density of 0.07 inches, seven percent water, is approximately equal to a six-inch-layer of fiberglass insulation with an insulation R-value of R-18
Rear Roof overhang will have to be cleared as Monday it is going to be warm, 45 and going to rain on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,    Possible flooding and Snow really gets heavy !
So, what to do while inside during a "Blizzard !
We made "Home Made Bread and Soup !   Delicious !
I have been inside for 3 days, Tomorrow I get out, it is Church which means it is Sunday !!!!!
Don't Forget our Veterans, Past and Present !

February is closing out rough,  NO TRAVEL in Jefferson, Lewis and Oswego Counties due to wind driven blowing Snow and White outs,  Sitting here I can barely see across the Street, Birds are all huddled up in the Evergreens.
Plows are going up and down the street here clearing the "Snow Drifts" !
They have "Pulled" the Plows which means it is to dangerous for them to be out on the roads, this was over on County Route 47 this Noon !
The advisory by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was issued at 7 a.m. due to snow-covered roads and limited visibility and Vehicles off the road. It will be in effect until further notice. The “No Unnecessary Travel Advisory” was issued by the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office at 7:45 a.m.        In Oswego County, an advisory began at 11 a.m. Thursday and will remain in place until 6 a.m. Sunday, according to Sheriff Donald Hilton.
