Got about five inches here, but it's starting to melt.

We have the Lake (Braddock) effect to worry about.

... combined with Lake Barcroft and Lake Fairfax it creates a vortex of updrafts that causes the upper thermals to cool creating a "wintry mix".

I wonder if you can still smell the Cheerios out on Lake Erie, when the snow is coming down hard?

Cheerios plant is at extreme left.  This picture was taken on a warm  :? spring day May 2010 day on Erie, at Buffalo.

The Micropterus dolomieu was about 5.5 lbs.

Guess we can't take a family vacation there - the dog and baby would jump right in hoping for Cheerios.

Not all of Erie smells good.  The rock jetties just offshore, for example.  If you get too close, the sea gulls rise up en-masse and dive bomb you.

I took that picture of my friend, the spittin' image of Raffy Palmeiro, sans 'roids.

We either use tube baits with heavy leadheads, or deep diving Rapala type baits, really big ones.  Fish are from 15-40' deep.

-27F at 7:30 a.m. here in Crested Butte.  Whether the car will start is a bit of a toss up.  And if it snows, will DCA be open? Ah, winter travel...

Only expecting 2-4" here.

Of course, Custer was only facing a few Indians, too.

It was 2-4 inches.  Then last night (this morning) when I went to bed, it was 1-3.  Then before work, 1-2.  Now it's less than an inch?  Good.  It's the busiest month of the year at work and they expect us to show up no matter what.  They offer hotel rooms if you don't think you can make it home, of course I actually live closer than the hotel :lol:

I like either no snow or a foot of snow, in between people try to get where they want to go and kill each other.

can you eat fish out of that lake. my only impression of its cleanliness was that old SNL commercial for Lake Erie Swill spring water or something like that
