The Mystique of Lake Effect

weather woes, winter

Weird. It’s WEIRD, people. Lake effect is that weird weather pattern that swoops down from the Great Lakes (Erie and Ontario) onto the unsuspecting citizens of Upstate New York.

About 15 minutes after I posted this post with this photo– showing ZERO visibility during heavy snow squalls with vicious winds…

Backyard Snow2

This appeared out my window. Five minutes later. Wild!

There’s an old saying here in Upstate: If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. LOL!

    That almost makes me homesick for NY. I lived off Memorial parkway in Utica for a few years back in the late 80′s,a good old fashioned snow storm would be nice once in a while, like Christmas. Have a nice Christmas.Sparky

    My husband is from Utica and my mother is from Syracuse. Pennsylvania feels like the tropics to me!
