We saw some online photos from up by the cottage yesterday, looks as if they got a fair amount. Makes me want to spend another winter there.

I assume the sarcasm emoji still isn't working? This is the only place I've lived where it snows sideways.

No, seriously. We spent '72-'73 there and we're wondering about doing it again.

It is pretty cool to see sometimes. Today is pretty nasty and seeming to get worse. I can hear Lake Huron from my house and it's about 3 short blocks away. Locals say "Lake's very angry today".

I've heard some folks who've lived around Kincardine all their lives say that back in the timeframe you're talking about was when we got really serious snow belt weather around here. Driving through open top snow tunnels. Roads getting closed for weeks. Grocery stores completely running out of food, etc.

Someone showed a pic on FB of the roads from here to Walkerton this afternoon. First thing I thought of was "That looks like a grey paint swatch". Total, solid whiteout. Couldn't see a bloody thing, yet people are still driving in it.

Anyhoo, I'm going out in the backyard to watch my Malinois and Husky destroy each other in the snow. Hopefully they can find each other out there.

We only went into town about every two weeks or so, and made it a point to pick the day. It was often pretty slim pickin' at the local grocery store.

I also like to go up the Bruce in late winter. I've seen some amazing photos.

Stop your bitching about snow, unless you live south of Buffalo.

Quote:
Lake Effect Snow Warning remains in effect until 1 pm EST Wednesday.

Lake Effect Snow Warning in effect from 11 pm Wednesday to 1 am EST Friday.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Lake Effect Snow Warning, which is in effect from 11 pm Wednesday to 1 am EST Friday.

Locations: Erie, Genesee, and Wyoming counties including the Buffalo Metro Area. Northern extent of the snow band along a line from South Buffalo to Depew and Batavia through this evening.
Timing: First warning continues through midday Wednesday. The second warning runs from late Wednesday evening through Thursday night.
Accumulations: snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour in the most intense portion of the band. Storm totals will reach 3 to 4 feet in many areas along and south of a line from South Buffalo to Batavia. Local amounts of 5 to 6 feet from Lackawanna to Lancaster and Elma from the first storm ending on Wednesday. Additional accumulations of up to 2 feet in the second storm late Wednesday night through Thursday night in persistent bands. The Heaviest amounts may again focus on the Buffalo Southtowns.
Makes the rest of us feel like we're in the tropics, eh ?

It ain't snowing yet here in Mass,but it is predicted to do so tomorrow, the day before T-giv, the most traveled day of the year. So what did everyone do?

EVERYone decided to head west at the same time to beat the Wednesday jam. AND a tractor-trailer decided to lay down on its side and play dead somewhere in the western part of the state on the Mass Pike.

Get this, 57 mile backup from Sturbridge into Boston. Vids were showing them crawling along at 15 - 20 mph.

FIFTY-SEVEN MILES

WOW

that must be the famous Heinz back up
