For once, it looks like we got off easy with the weather in the Catskills. While we've gotten about a foot of snow since yesterday, that looks pretty good compared to 20 inches in Central Park and 31 inches in New Jersey. (We're doing better than our neighbors in Columbia County, as well, where there is an official state of emergency delcared.)
Among the many closings and delays is a planned protest at Belleayre Mountain which was scheduled for today. It has been moved to this Friday at noon in front of Belleayre's gates.
Both Windham Mountain and Plattekill Mountain report that they got about 12 inches of snow. Acorn Hill Farm in Walker Valley is saying the same. Hunter Mountain, however, is reporting that it's gotten 18 inches in the "December to Remember," and that it's still falling.
Mike Wentland, of the Catskills Cycling blog, reports that the real issue in the Catskills might be the wind -- he tweets that 40 mile-per-hour gusts are keeping him from going cross-county skiing today.
