Our lake effect snow warning that began on Sunday morning was extended from 7:00 PM Tuesday until 6:00 this morning. I just received an email that says that the lake effect snow warning is extended until 10:00 AM on Thursday. Yesterday morning, I measured 19 inches of snow on the ground. Bob cleared the driveway and sidewalk when he came home from work. He measured 21 inches of snow. I’d say there is 2 feet of snow on the ground now. The latest forecast calls for 6-12 inches of new snow.
Our winters are usually snowy; however, we don’t have many 5-day snow events! Last time I remember it snowing for such a long period of time and a good amount of snow from the storm was during the Thanksgiving Day holiday in 2002! The 2002-2003 season was quite snowy. I remember Leo, our exchange student at the time, wondered when it would start to snow. Leo is from Brazil and had never seen snow. He was very excited when we received our first snowfall, which was sometime in October 2002. After a few snow storms, Leo asked when the snow would end. If I recall correctly, it snowed until early April 2003.
