No new snow here in Syracuse, NY and in the lower 20's. We had 17" of snow earlier in the week with 30-40 mph winds and 12" last week, but we're used to it. We just clear out the driveway and go about our business. We're still way below our average of 120"-130" a season. We just keep watching our ticker and can't wait to get out of here!

My husband is currently driving our son in law to the airport, for a flight to San Diego. His original flight was canceled, rebooked, and now delayed twice. It is doubtful that he will make any Atlanta connection at this point. His flight is one of only three flights that are taking off today. The rest are canceled. Hubby said the main roads are clear. The worst part was getting out of our driveway and subdivision. We have three four wheel drive vehicles, so we are rarely stuck. The only thing that hinders us is ice.
Here's an update since I just wrote this. Son in law just found out that the plane he is supposed to take to Atlanta is still in Atlanta. They haven't left for Richmond yet because the runways here in Richmond are still too icy for them to land. Hubby is now back home. I hope that he doesn't have to make the 1 hr. trip back to pick him up, and then try to do this all over again tomorrow.
I hope your son gets out today! My friend is flying west on Tuesday to see her new grandchild for the first time so we are keeping our fingers crossed for her too. It's going to be a while for things to get back to normal around here I think. Dulles Aiport total was around 26" and Reagan was 17" I think.
I'm guessing a lot of you in the northeast are smiling at my state of panic...lol. Heck I am too, but really the weather is different down here. Our biggest problem is that day time temps will be 35-40, then night time temps in the teens. So for the next week we will go through a cycle of melting and refreezing, and every morning will be a mess. We have a 4 wheel drive so we went out to see how the main roads were and right now they are not good, so we didn't go far. The scary thing is seeing the snow banks and people walking in the road and the road only has 1 or 1-1/2 lanes actually open, when it usually has 3 and a turn lane. Our other car is a small commuter car and it sits kind of low to the ground. I don't see us getting out of our neighborhood with it till at least Tuesday.
Totally understand Tracey. Last year, here, they made every other road a temporary one way. Then they brought in front end loaders and dump trucks to haul the snow out. No fun! You need a lot of patience!
