Stella, the Blizzard of March 2017, arrived in Long Lake on Tuesday morning around 11:30am. Steady snow fell throughout the afternoon. Areas from Raquette and around Long Lake, NY reported a range of snow from 20 to 30 inches in some localized areas. The snow was very light, which made people going to the trouble of moving it around grateful for the minimal push and pull, even though the relentless snow, did prove to be exhausting by the end of the night. Pathways, and driveways were inundated with snow in the early evening. Reports came in from around the community that driveways had to be replowed consistently as reports varied from two to four inches of snow fell per hour. Between 20 – 30 inches of snow fell in the Long Lake and Raquette Lake area. A special thanks to all the crews keeping the roads safe despite the difficult conditions. Long Lake Highway, Hamilton County Highway, NYS DOT, all emergency crews and the NYS Troopers for closing the road between Long Lake and Blue Mountain to facilitate the removal of a truck that had gone off the road and gotten stuck in over a foot of snow in B ...
