Winter’s Here…And It’s Pissed

Friday The 13th Blizzard Upstate New York

Low visibility during the height of the storm on Friday the 13th

After the most mild November and December ever, winter ‘s here and it’s really pissed.  Winter had laid dormant for about 2 1/2 months, but then came in swinging with a one-two punch that left much of northern New York without power. Friday morning started as a downpour and quickly transformed into a monster blizzard designed to torment and confuse complacent Upstate New Yorkers. Jefferson county pretty much shut down around noon and everyone scrambled indoors to wait out the storm. The snow had quickly formed on top of all of the sitting water from the heavy rains, making the driving conditions absolutely treacherous and numerous accidents were reported.
