Lake Effect Snow

Posted By: Grandin  Posted On: Jan 3rd, 2012  Filed Under: Weather

Well im on the road near the indiana ohio state line. And over here 2 feet of snow fell looks so pretty when snow freshly falls. And i was in michigan near grand rapids and in some places up there 3 feet of snow fell. All from the lake effect snows. But the snows have stoped cause the winds have went away. And now the clean up begins which is good for me cause least got some change in my pocket now sorta. But the warm up begins around here  in the northern indiana part the temps will be allmost 50 on friday. So whatever we get will be gone or alot of it will be gone in just a few days. Tired of this warm patteren over ridding the cold bums me out.All summer and fall long i been hearing how cold it will be and how snowy it will be. Im thinking this winter will mainly be a bust sadly to say. With cold shots here and there with bursts of snow then have a warm up. For what it’s worth im hearing that summer 2012 will be mainly cool and stormy alot of the time for alot of the united states.  And around where i live only 4 inches of snow fell. My town got missed by the heavy snows the wind were to east and not enough northwest. So i got the left overs really.. Happy new year everyone..

    Hi Miss Scott. We live down south of Saginaw and all we got all winter was an inch here and there. just enough to make driving a pain.  We had 2 “storms” that produced 6 inches and that was winter.
