Unseasonably warm. Should be a great bug year
back in 2010 we received over 3 feet of lake effect snow. It shut our city down for the second time. The first was the blizzard of 1971.If I lived in an area that got lake effect snow I'd shoot myself. Some towns in upstate New York are approaching and might surpass 4 FEET from this current "storm".
3 feet is horrible, we had 3 feet of normal snow about 5 years ago which set a record for snowfall in my area. There's nowhere to put it after a while, when you need to shovel the mounds are over your head. And that's not all that bad compared to what's possible. Some areas of the Upper Peninsula in Michigan can get 6-8 feet of lake effect snow in a single event and 25+ feet in a winter. HTF can a town cope with 25 feet of snow? Hell, how do you get out of your house to start digging out from 6-8 feet of snow? Climb out an upstairs window maybe, your doors probably won't open.back in 2010 we received over 3 feet of lake effect snow. It shut our city down for the second time.
