Looks like winter is upon us on the Great Lakes

Hey SST, did you get what they had predicted for you?
If we get a couple of inches here, Cleveland usually gets a foot, that is the lake effect that goes all the way to Buffalo.

I heard 6ft for Buffalo. So they moved the Browns Bills game. Wussys. Man, the best games are the ones played in snow conditions. Would have been fun to watch. Dang shame.
SST hope you are ready for the white stuff. A white Christmas indeed.

Ya, I remember many years ago watching a Green Bay packers home game and there was so much snow on the field it was a complete white out, and players sliding all over the place.

Hi guys. I made out ok. I got about 15 to 20 inches but that was nothing compared to what happened 10 miles south. They got hammered with 77 inches of snow in places. Friday night I was driving home and it was snowing moderately but still had reasonable visibility. But then it started dropping quick and then POOF! No more visibility! Zero! I missed my exit cuz I simply couldn’t tell where the ramp was. So I kept driving (creeping is more like it) hoping I don’t drive into someone who stopped. About a 1/2 mile further we drove out of the band and back into a general snowfall and made it home ok.

My friend got hammered by that band. His plow guy eventually came with a bobcat to clear his driveway. Crazy storm. Now it’s gonna be in the 40’s all week so all this beautiful skiable snow will melt! Here is a pic from today after our second band during the night. This is nothing compare to my friends.

Wow! My daughter said she seen pictures of the falls, said it was very pretty.
It is one thing to see it on TV, it is a different story to be there.
Every so often we will get hit like that, and trust me I know , it is no fun.
You never get use to it, you just learn to deal with it.
Hope it doesn't melt too fast for you and you get to get your X-country skis on.

What is that area in the photo?
Is it some sort of path in the woods, or a frozen creek?

Just an open area within a nature preserve. It’s very popular but fortunately large. Even when it’s busy you rarely see anyone.
