Looks like I'll be getting some seat time the next couple of days.
Lake effect is supposed to hit us tonight. I'm in the 12-20" band.

Good luck with that;lived and worked in Central NY for ten years.At least the towns,counties and state are well prepared for it.I am sure our TBN members also are ready.
I was there 1975-85 and saw my share for sure.Hard to believe it can snow that much in such a short time.

I've lived where I am for the past 31 years. I take the weathermans prediction with a grain of salt. Sometimes they are wrong and other times they under predict. We have had over 20" in a 24 hour period before. The prediction for my area is for more than 24" over the next 48 hours. Lake effect areas can change depending on the wind direction. That's why I finally bought a cabbed tractor. If it happens I'm ready.

Started snowing here around 5:15. Has a wave of it moved through there yet George? Went from bare lawn to an inch or so in a hurry. Its amazing how the lake effect can pummel an area and just a short distance away the sun will be out. I'm prepared with a new blower to break in so bring it on! Would love to have a cabbed tractor but the budget didn't allow at this time.

As I mentioned before, lake effect predictions can be true or false. The storm warning says 7-14" tonight followed by 5-10" Wed. then 3-6 more Wed. night but the weather in motion radar map doesn't agree. You also know how lake effect can be. I have seen 12" overnight in my area, yet 20" just 5 miles north of me and less than an inch 5 miles south of me all from the same storm. It started snowing lightly here about 4 PM, now at 6 there's about 2".

Good evening from New Brunswick, we're waiting for the same storm that you are getting. We have almost no snow, except in the wood there might be 2-3 inches. Has been a good winter up to now. Supposed to get 3-6 inches. Here anything less than a foot , need not worry. Have a good night..
