Another inch of snow in Forestport

It is spring but yet here we are with another round of snow that brought a fresh coating to the area.

Though the calendar may say April 17, this is the kind of sight you might see late November/ early December. This is not what people expect to see on their ride into work in spring. Though it does look beautiful, it doesn't belong. Our average high for April is 55 degrees but yet here we are with another round of snow that brought a fresh coating to the area. This has caused for the plows to come back out and lay salt on a cold day. A place that was warm was Forestport Diner. We stopped at the welcoming environment and asked customers how does it feel to see more snow this far into April?


" It's really drawn out and real long and fluctuations in temperatures are really hard to deal with and it makes it hard to work. You go from frozen ground to soft ground to mud and back to frozen ground again. I mean it's tedious... Drags out just hope it ends sooner than it does," Alder Creek resident Chad Burdick said.

And to back that up with some extra statistics, our average temperature in April is 33.6 degrees. We are currently 4 degrees below that average, putting us onto the track to beat a record set back in 1838 for the coldest April on record.
