Winter 2008 - 09 arrived with a bang, delivering several inches of snow on November 18, only three days after we got most of the leaves piled up.

But, it really arrived on December 19 - 20 (Friday and Saturday), with a delivery of about 18 inches of snow in 36 hours. Traffic on Friday was a mess, but Rochesterians know what to do with snow, and so things were well cleaned up on Saturday.
