Your Turn: Your Feedback On Winter Tourism & Cold

Tools

If you're going to promote winter tourism in New York, there's no better place to do it than in one of the state's snowiest areas - the Tug Hill region. That's exactly what Governor Andrew Cuomo did last week as he unveiled a multi-million dollar ad campaign:

 

It's all about lining the pockets of elected officials. It's not for the good of the state or the hard working people in it. They don't care who here can afford it.

Ronnie Durand

Does this mean the governor and state idiots won't raid the snowmobile money to fix other budget shortfalls? Oh, that's right, tourism will bring in more money to steal!

A number of local businesses closed last week after the subzero temperatures caused water pipes to burst:

 

When I lived up there, we would wrap our pipes up with a heat pump.

Sharon Smith

Surprisingly enough this cold didn't cause problems at my house but boy, I almost couldn't start my car.

Peter P Harmych

Beaver Meadow's pipes burst around midnight. Our apartment is one many to flood.

It wasn't just business which were affected by the cold. People around the north country shared their experiences with the wind chill plunging to 35 degrees below zero:

 

Water froze up tight.  Melting snow to flush toilet.

We haven't gotten mail since before Christmas because our mailbox is iced in!

Kirsty Murphy

Wearing a parka to bed. Feels like -35. I'll take 4 feet of snow over this crap.

Diana Widrick

My thermometer froze so I guess it's cold.

Ann Marie Wallace

We are dairy farmers so my husband has been out in it all day...everything is frozen at the farm.
