the worst Lake Ontario snow belt is the south-east and east shores..
Oswego, NY gets hammered every year!
WAY more snow than Syracuse, Rochester or Buffalo..
but because Oswego isnt big enough, it is seldom counted in the "cities with the most snowfall" lists..or the "golden snowball" contest:
If Oswego could play in that contest, it would win EVERY year!
Oswego and the "Tug Hill Plateau" on the east side of the lake gets the most snow..
because the prevaling winds generally flow in those directions..
