Adirondack snow enthusiasts’ hearts are light this morning. A Northeaster snowstorm barreled up the coast last night and left a foot of fresh snow in and around the Adirondack North Country. Thank you Atlantic Ocean.
It is still snowing and the storm, in classic Northeaster form, will perform some kind of swirling meteorological magic and dump up to 22 inches of additional snow. At least that is what the NOAA weather forecast promised, and I plan to hold them to it.
Schools and other public gatherings are canceled or closed throughout the region. You can find updated information on closings and schedules at North Country Public Radio. This is a heavy, wet snow, so please be careful moving it. Snow shoveling is a workout and not to be confused with a fun workout like, oh maybe, skiing!
You know where I’ll be today.
