Winter wit on a cold morning

Indian Lake resident Daisy Kelly helps keep an eye on the weather for NCPR in the southern Adirondacks. She phoned-in a couple of bitterly cold temperature updates early this morning, and later shared some mid-winter wit and wisdom with Martha Foley and Todd Moe.  Go to full article

Ice builds in Ottawa

The Rideau Canal winds through the heart of Ottawa. It's scenic in summer. In winter, it emerges as a dominant feature of city life, nearly five miles of outdoor skating. Students and businessmen commute on skates. Tourists come from both sides of the border. The Skateway is the star attraction for Winterlude. Hundreds of thousands of people crowd the ice during the three-week-long carnival held every February, bringing $150 million dollars into the region's economy. The unusually warm start to this winter cast doubt on any skate season at all. January may be a write-off, but deep cold has finally arrived, making Winterlude's prospects look--nearly solid. Ottawa correspondent Lucy Martin has more.  Go to full article

Farmers facing real winter weather

Temperatures this winter have left a lot of people wondering... December's 70-degree days caused flowers to bloom - but also contributed to concerns over global warming. This week's cold snap - reassuring to some - has raised new questions about the health of the North Country's ecosystem. What do these fluctuating temperatures do to plants, soils and watersheds? Was there any damage to area farms? Or livestock? Jonathan Brown put these questions to farm-business manager Bill Van Loo, at the Cornell Cooperative Extension.  Go to full article

Late winter may not mean late spring

Roads were slick, causing accidents across the state. A harried-sounding officer at the State Police station in Ray Brook yesterday afternoon said, "There are more accidents than I have time to count." Meteorologist Brook Taber with the National Weather Service says the snow and freezing rain will taper off as cold temperatures move in. He told Jonathan Brown that the weather is just getting back to normal.  Go to full article

Winter comes back to the North Country

Winter finally returned to the North Country today with snow, freezing rain and wintry conditions that have mostly been a no-show this season.

Tree limbs and power lines are snapping. In Saratoga County, an estimated 40,000 people are without power. It's not expected to be restored until tomorrow.

The Red Cross is opening a shelter and warming center for area residents at the Maple Avenue Middle School between Six and Seven tonight.

Western and central New York metro areas are also reporting up to a half-inch of ice on roads, trees and power lines. As a result, almost 40,000 homes in the Syracuse area are without power - more than 50,000 homes around Rochester.

Roads are tied up because of snow, accidents and even some fatalities across the region.

A harried officer at the State Police headquarters in Ray Brook said, "There are more accidents than I have time to count." He warns that all roads are now snow-covered and slippery.

To get a better sense of the weather system that has moved in to the area, Jonathan Brown called the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont. Meteorologist Brook Taber, says things are just getting back to normal.  Go to full article
