Lake effect snow hits southern Oswego County

Most of us woke up to little or no snow Monday morning, but in parts of Oswego County, as much as three feet piled up in less than a day.
Oswego County (WSYR-TV) -- Most of us woke up to little or no snow Monday morning, but in parts of Oswego County, as much as three feet piled up in less than a day.

Neighbors in Southern Oswego County woke up to anywhere from a foot to three feet from Central Square to West Monroe.

After a brief January thaw with temperatures reaching into the high 50s last week, a lake effect storm reminds us where we are.

“It’s just another day in Central New York. We’re pretty prepared, we bought a little Yamaha side-by-side with a little plow to it, so there’s not too much here that stops us,” said Oswego County resident Mike Hart.

In snow country, you won’t find too many people digging out with a good old shovel, instead fancy snow blowers and plows are a must have to speed up the process.

And while most of us only have a car or tow to clear off, imagine working at Reymore Chevrolet in Central Square, where every car gets its own personal attention.

“We’re about 130 up on top and 160 down below, so we’re close to about 300 vehicles on top and bottom that we’re going to be clearing out one by one,” said Brian Hickey with Reymore Chevrolet. “Definitely a day’s work today.”
