After a surprise storm in late October, downstate New York hadn’t seen any real snow until yesterday. Admittedly many people prefer it that way (it sure makes driving easier), but I’m of the view that you can’t have a genuine east coast winter without the stuff. Besides, without the snow the countryside just looks bare and dreary.
For now though, winter is back on schedule. There were even people out skiing at Rockefeller State Park.
