Lake effect drops 10-14 inches of snow on parts of Oswego County

Lake effect snow has made its debut in Central New York. Snowfall that started over the weekend continues, leaving more than a foot of snow in Northern Oswego County.
Altmar (WSYR-TV) -- Lake effect snow has made its debut in Central New York. Snowfall that started over the weekend continues, leaving more than a foot of snow in Northern Oswego County.

Mark Sabia, who owns his own snow plowing business, has been going non-stop since this weekend.

“Last night I did some when it was still snowing, so it wouldn’t be hard to push around,” Sabia told NewsChannel 9.

It’s nothing Northern Oswego isn’t used to seeing, but some were a little caught off guard by the amount of snowfall.

“I can’t believe it already. This isn’t even December 1, yet,” said Oswego County resident Scott Downey.

All the snow meant a two hour delay for APW schools and 10-year-old Kody Haywood is making the most of the late start and the snow.

“There’s a lot of it…it’s awesome,” he said.

More snow would make for even better sledding conditions and business for Sabia who hopes to make up some ground from the mild winter last year.

"We're pretty much used to it up here. Last year we got lucky. It was a fluke I think...I don't know what we're in store for this year,” Sabia said. "I hope we get more snow and lots of it."

Parts of Northern Oswego County got the most snow -- from 10-14 inches.
