Deerfield, N.Y. - You often hear people say something like, 'Nothing like the weather here in Central New York , where one day it'll be 60 degrees and the next, a snow storm'.

Well, that's exactly what happened Friday into Saturday.

Saturday morning, Cassandra Murphy and her 12 year old son Brady were getting some major exercise by shoveling out nearly a foot of snow from their driveway after seeing near 60 degree temperatures less than 24 hour earlier.

Cassandra says she expected a big snowfall this winter sooner or later, "I just chalk it up to Central New York. We're used to it. It doesn't bother me either way."

Up the road in Deerfield, Bill Burney got his big covered plow out to help those who need to get their driveways plowed out, "The worst part was getting in the truck this morning, getting the truck unthawed and getting into the doors."

Both Burney and Murphy say they can't help to think how fortunate they are to just be shoveling snow and not dealing with the aftermath of flooding, as some in both Whitesboro and Ilion are doing after Friday morning's flooding, and many in Sylvan Beach are doing after Saturday morning's flooding.

Burney says it's sad to see so many people going through that once again, "I feel sorry for them, I really feel sorry for them."

Murphy says she knows some who are dealing with flooding issues, "I have some friends that live out in Whitesboro and some people out in Ilion, so it's just sad to have to deal with it."
