Winter weather woes

The cold and snow are taking their toll on local driving. This morning's Journal reports 43 accident reports by 6:50pm yesterday, though none of them were fatal. A look at this morning's radar shows snow in a narrow diagonal strip from Lansing to Binghamton, concentrated in Tompkins County, and nowhere else in New York.

A re-published interview with Sheriff Peter Meskill about weather conditions and driving mentions last year's three fatal accidents on Route 13 in Dryden. The second half of the Journal's editorial talks about the dangers of plowing snow into the road and increased ticketing for it.
