The latest lake effect storm has pushed the season's snow totals to more than 300 inches in the Oswego County town of Redfield. That's more than 25 feet.

National Weather Service observer Carolyn Yerdon‏ posted the information with a photo on Twitter Friday morning.

She tweeted: "300"??? You betcha! We got that and MORE! 14.8" of lake effect overnight in Redfield NY brings us to 307" for the season!!

This makes Redfield a Mecca for snowmobilers.

"I've been riding all day today and the trails are awesome. Tons of snow, as soon as I entered into Redfield it was just a tower of snow," said Mike Cerretto, who has a camp in Redfield.

"It's five feet deep on there in places," said Shaun Carnevalie, who's visiting from Binghamton.

Yerdon said the average seasonal snowfall is 288 inches.

She said this much snow for early February is not unusual and, with the right March, Redfield could break the record set in 1996-97 of 424.25 inches, which is more than 35 feet.
