WINTER TIGHTENS GRIP WITH SNOWFALL FOUR TO FOURTEEN INCHES ;
OPEN BUT SLIPPERY ROADS

OLD MAN WINTER,WHO HAS BEEN LENIENT WITH THE SOUTHERN TIER THIS SEASON, TIGHTENED HIIS GRIP ON THE AREA TODAY, AS SNOW FLURRIES AND GUSTS OF WIND CONTINUED TO PILE UP THE FALL OF SNOW ALREADY EIGHT INCHES DEEP.  CLEAR AND CONTINUED COLD WAS PREDICTED FOR SUNDAY .
STATE POLICE REPORT ALL MAIN HIGHWAYS OPEN FOR TRAFFIC, BUT ROADS ARE GENERALLY SLIPPERY UNDERNEATH A COVERING OF SNOW RANGING FROM FOUR TO FOURTEEN INCHES. THE SOFT SNOW WAS REPORTED DRIFTING IN PLACES.  MORE SNOW WAS REPORTED TO THE EAST THAN TO THE WEST.

MONTEREY , ROSE HILL , HORNBY AND SPENCER HILL RESIDENTS ALL REPORTED ROADS OPEN ,TEMPERATURES AROUND 14 DEGREES AND DRIFTING SNOW. FARMERS WERE GLAD OF THE HEAVY SNOW FALL, WHICH WILL PUT MOISTURE BACK INTO THE EARTH.  SEVERAL FARMERS REPORT FAILING SPRINGS BECAUSE WINTER HAS BEEN SO DRY.

THE SCRAPE OF THE SNOW SHOVELS WAS AN ALARM CLOCK FOR MANY RESIDENTS TODAY. OVERSHOES CAME OUT OF STORAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS YEAR FOR MANY EARLY RISERS WHO HAD TO BLAZE TRAILS TO WORK.
