You were already gone by January 05 when .7 of an inch of snow fell and caused crippling gridlock that lasted for 10 hours. (it took 3 hours for my kids to get home on the bus that day). Lots of people in RTP had to spend the night at work and some kids had to stay at school overnite as well.

Oh but don't downplay those SUNY schools! SUNY Binghampton is a TOP NOTCH university (I could not get in there with a 1160 SAT and 90 average and my AP courses- I wasn't "smart enough") Several of NYS SUNY schools are TOP ranked schools and are challenging. Stonybrook is pretty good too, as is Genesseo. That is what I love about NY - they have some of the best universities in the world.

Ithaca and Cornell are awesome too. My cousin is going to Alfred, he is in his 2nd year.

Red face Snow Snow Snow

I have lived in NY my whole life I live in a small town called Kendall, we are between Rochester and Buffalo on lake Ontario I just have to say that is is beautiful here when it snows! Sure we complain and get sick of it after a while but it is still very pretty! I LOVe "snowstorms" and would love to get a blizzard and get snowed in with the family. We have not had something like that in a long time.

GLOBAL WARMING!!! lol. That is true though, WNY has had one of it's least snowy winters on record this year, none of the upstate lakes even froze over! That's gotta be a first. You live in Kendall..... are you familiar with the Carlton/Kuckville/Waterport area? My family used to own a cottage there but my parents had to sell it a few years ago because they couldn't really keep it up.

I have some amazing pictures of the two foot snow storm we had in the City last year. I went up to Central Park for the day. Absoutely breath taking.
I will post a couple if I can find them.

I drove through Syracuse/Cortland a couple of days ago, and BRRRRR! Farther east, I realize, but I think the whole northeast got a cold front...

So, how is it Rochester right now? interested to hear from someone who is there!

@just_sayin Which part of NC do you live in now? I am from NYC and I now live in Charlotte and I am considering moving back but I cannot afford to go back to the city. I am single and also have 3 kids under the age of 18 years of age. I am considering the Rochester area because I hear that it is the best place for single parents. I have a house here and it would be hard to sell but I have been here for 7 years and I have gotten used to the surburban life style. I dont want to go to an area where the schools are bad. I have a daughter who is about to start kindergarten and a son who needs to be placed in daycare. Are the daycare affordable?
