Road conditions throughout Oswego County are extremely hazardous due to heavy snow and wind conditions. The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office and Oswego County Highway Superintendent urge people to avoid traveling in the northeast portion of the county.
Visibility conditions are very poor and highway crews are having a difficult time keeping up with the amount of snow and blowing conditions, the officials said. People should use extreme caution while traveling and should check on conditions before they set out.
This morning the lake effect snow bands were creating hazardous conditions north of Route 104 and east of Route 11, but according to the National Weather Service – Buffalo Forecast Office, the bands are expected to drift steadily south during the next few hours. Conditions will improve in the north but the band will drift first to the Oswego/Mexico/Williamstown area and by afternoon is expected to impact the Fulton/Parish area.
The CNY Arts Center Snow Day Committee is working hard to put details together for the second annual Snow Day to be held Jan. 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event will be held at the center at 357 State St., Fulton.
CNY Arts Center will be bringing back some of last year’s popular games (ice fishing, pong toss, and the snowman bean bag toss), while some new games will be added.
There will also be face painting, free art and craft activities, an art gallery featuring local artists’ work, a writing workshop (organized by Writing Programming Coordinator and board member Jim Farfaglia), and a mystery guest will be there as well for the children.
“With the holidays now over, we know people are trying to relax and regroup, both mentally and financially,” said committee member Kiley Casper. “We hope that Snow Day will provide a day of affordable family friendly excitement that parents and children can both enjoy.” Carnival tickets will be available at the door.
The Oswego Music Hall will present the high-powered blue-grass ensemble, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Saturday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m.
This acoustic band plays the true, bluegrass stuff, according to reviewer Devon Leger.
“Alan Lomax famously called bluegrass ‘folk music on overdrive’ and after Frank Solivan’s performance, I’d have to whole-heartedly agree,” said Leger.
Hailing mostly from the D.C. area, Solivan plays mandolin, guitar and violin while the banjo is played by Mike Munford. Danny Booth provides the heartbeat on the stand up bass and Chris Luquette, from the Seattle music scene, plays the acoustic guitar, mandolin, drums, bass, electric guitar, banjo, and Greek bouzouki.
The all-volunteer, family-friendly Music Hall, also known as the Ontario Center for Performing Arts, is located in the McCrobie Civic Center, 41 Lake St., Oswego.

Lysander made it a one-point game at the start of the second stanza. Evan Beckwith responded, scoring on a breakaway. The Lightning stunned Fulton with two in a row at the start of the third period for a 3-3 tie.
Raider Nate Shaw sent a pass to Clarke, who skated through the Lysander defense to net the go-ahead goal, his 15th of the season.
Fulton’s Robbie Carson scored, skating the puck in on an end-to-end rush, before Cameron Whipple sealed a win for the Raiders with a backhand shot, Cooney assisting.
Fulton’s Evan Burdick stopped 24 shots in net.
