SNOW IS EXPECTED TO OVERSPREAD THE REGION TUESDAY MORNING. PERIODS OF SNOW WILL THEN CONTINUE AT VARYING INTENSITIES FROM TUESDAY RIGHT THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF WEDNESDAY.
THE PERIOD OF HEAVIEST SNOW IS LIKELY TO BE FROM LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. AS COLDER AIR WRAPS INTO THE SYSTEM...SOME LAKE ENHANCEMENT IS ALSO POSSIBLE FROM LATE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS BY MIDDAY WEDNESDAY ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 10 TO 14 INCHES...WITH THE GREATEST AMOUNTS WITHIN 10 TO 20 MILES OF LAKE ONTARIO.
This may in fact be the first major snow storm up here in NY for me since I have gotten here. If it comes true, I'll be sure to snap some pictures for all to see the glory that is western NY in late Febuary! Stay tuned!

Snow covered shrubs near the cemetary in between where I work and the Medical Institue.
Snow covered trees near the library next to where I work.
As you can tell from these two pictures, it snows often up here. We haven't received 2 feet in one snowfall yet, but I'm sure it will be coming soon enough. It can be quite beautiful, but treachourous up here at times. Again, the best part is that I don't have to shovel it!
Anyhow, having Sneks up here was awesome, and on Sunday, I had my first ever party at my place in celebration of the Superbowl. Sneks' family and friends showed up to celebrate the Patriots going 18-1 on the season. I did not win any money this year (unlike last year when I kicked ass at Dr. B's party). Fun was had by all, and I was very happy to see the Manning kid defeat those cocky asshole New England Patriots.
It was definitly sad to see Sneks go this past week, but the best part is that I will be seeing her in at worst 2 weeks from now. Needless to say, I'm counting down the days till I see her again!!! Here's hoping everyone is doing well!

I finished moving into the place on Saturday, got everything (for the most part) unpacked and organized. I can't say enough how much I love my place and this was B.C. (Before Cable). Much is still needed to be done, but it is minimal compared to where I was days ago.
My first day as a post-doc was exciting yet painful. After talking to my post-doc mentor, it was time for both 10,ooo signatures, pictures for identification......the list goes on and on. Sadly, I am still not done going through these necessary processes. Following cleaning and organization of my house, I now have to do nearly the same thing where I work. At least this is minimal though. I'm nearly complete cleaning stuff up in the lab, and once I get lab certified, I will start in my new field which pertains to neuroplasticity in the auditory circuit of the zebra finch brain (in english, how hearing things makes your brain wire itself properly). It has been nearly a month or two since I last did real work in the lab. It's about freaking time!
I will soon have pictures to post here from Small City, NY. Especially since tonight was the first official measurable snowfall since I have gotten here (my guess is about 4inches and still more to come). The best part, I DON'T HAVE TO SHOVEL ANY OF IT!!!!!!

Now it is time for the next chapter of my life. I am taking a break from packing right this moment to let everyone know that this again may be the last blog for a little while. That is, until I get cable and Internet in my apartment. My family and I driving up to Small City, NY tomorrow morning to finish unpacking and settling in my place in NY. A very crazy but exciting time!
I can not help but say how much I will miss everyone including my best friend from high school and his family, my good college day friends from PA, PA (not a typo), and all of my friends and family from Small Town University. It has been a combination of sadness and happiness the past couple of days, but I can safely say that I am ready to start new. Besides, this is one step closer to being with my girl Sneks for the rest of my life!!!!
