Never-ending snow causing chaos

It was a record-breaking 48 hours as one Oswego County town picked up five feet of snow. Between Tuesday and Wednesday, syracuse.com reports Redfield saw 62.2 inches, a record amount for a two-day period.

The old 48-hour high-snow mark was 57 inches in Bennetts Bridge set back in 2008. A similar snowy story played out in southern Jefferson County, where the suffocating snows actually trapped a woman inside her Lorraine home.

According to 7 News, emergency crews using a front-end loader cut a path early Wednesday for the woman to safely exit the house on French Settlement Road. Snow drifts and snowbanks are reportedly about six-feet high in that portion of the county and due to the weather, officials recommend checking in on the status of any ederly residents.
