Well over 14 inches of snow here, Along with cat. 2 hurricane force winds. Power is still out for thousands in this area. And now the wind chill is well below zero, And still dropping fast.
While that type of snowstorm is not all that unusual here, It sure is this EARLY in the year! It is not even winter yet!
Just where is AlGore and his "warming" B.S. I have several huge snowdrifts for him to sit in while he ponders his warming B.S.
It is a balmy 1 degree here this morning. Winds are out of the West at 11 Mph. I'm thinking it would be a good day to walk to work. Not quite harsh enough for the heavy winter coat yet though, the windbreaker should be enough.
That even happens out here when it doesn't rain.

Lake effect rules the weather where I live. While we see it all the time, few get to see white out snow conditions come from a clear blue sky. The worst is driving west toward the Lake Michigan in the winter. One second the sun is so bright you have to squint, the next second it's snowing so hard you can't see the car ahead of you. Literally.

Actually, snow removal out here is done by private companies. They do a pretty good job too. And to boot it's cheaper than the $80-$100k+ plus overtime that they pay in the city to union NYC sanitation workers, even though we get more snow.
