Fingerlakes Weather guy on Facebook said it was -9 in Rochester this
morning and that is the coldest EVER March temperature recorded.  The
closest was -7 in 1872.

Let's hope this warming trend takes hold.

 This has not happened here in many years.
 Was in Batavia yesterday before returning here,  saw one of the Snowy

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Ice mid lake/Snowy Owl Genesee Co.

2014-03-06 Thread Linda Post Van Buskirk
That large ice flow could be the chunk that broke off from the north end of the 
lake.  It floated past Aurora the other morning.  When the winter is cold 
enough so that good ice forms to the north (according to my fishing depth 
guide, where the lake is less than 100 feet deep), late winter and spring are 
enlivened by the sight of floes traveling south.  I particularly like it when 
the floes are populated with geese going for a ride.
Enjoy this perfectly beautiful day-
Linda VB
