lake effect

After two months of empty promises, the weather finally delivered. We have a significant amount of snow (over an inch) that has stuck around (literally).

For months, weather reports have bantered about "lake effect" snow - the increase in snow caused by our proximity to Lake Erie. This was something I awaited with anticipation. Unfortunately, we are just beyond the lake-effect shadow. So, while everyone around us got 6-8 inches, we got wet streets. It was a let down.

But no more. The lake effect has arrived. I will spare you more pictures of snow (for now). Suffice it to say, it's pretty.

Spare us? No way! Pictures of the pretty are always good! Congrats on the snow finally arriving (we're now getting some sort of sunny warm weather -- guess it all evens out).
