Big snowfall causes power outages in Cherry Valley

Cherry Valley had two feet of heavy wet snow, bringing down some trees and power lines.

Posted: Apr 27, 2020 6:46 PM

While the Mohawk Valley saw no snow at all, Cherry Valley was buried with heavy wet snow. Their snowfall totals were around a foot and a half. 

Cars were also covered in this heavy snow in Cherry Valley. Many residents had to dig their way out of their driveways, but they are used to it. One Cherry Valley resident, Mrs. Elisabeth Crady, said "I wasn't surprised. And it wasn't really coming down in buckets, but it was still snowing and I thought, this is going to be bad." Another resident, Mr. Art Ritter, said "It's part of living in Upstate New York. You've got to expect it."

The type of snow they got, was very wet and heavy. Draping over roofs and clinging to trees, bringing some of them down. Many people were outside cleaning up the fallen trees for quite some time. The Cherry Valley Superintendent, Mr. Taylor Miles, told us "I've been out here, well we started probably 5 o clock last night, 5:30, and I was out until 11:30. Then back out here again at 5 o clock this morning."

Some of these trees fell on power lines, leaving some residents without power. Crews were out restoring power in Cherry Valley this morning, but it will be a while before the job is finished. Mr. Miles said "We'll be out here all day and probably the rest of the week cleaning up from everything. Getting power restored to some houses that lost it."

The snow doesn't look to stick around much longer. A snowman that was built Monday morning, had mostly melted in just two hours. 

Even though it looks like winter now, with warmer weather forecasted for the next couple of days, a lot of this snow is expected to melt. It will fill up creeks and rivers and also rain is forecasted later in the week. Be cautious for areas of localized flooding in the village of Cherry Valley and Roseboom.
