Also, a little factoid here:

Lake effect snow only happens in a few remote areas around the entire world, Lake Erie being one of them, this snow is not generated off of a storm, but off of NW winds which carry moisture to literally produce snow off the lake, in essence its a snow machine.

Those are some absolutely STUNNING pictures.
Wow.
I haven't seen any snow for well over a year...i think all the smog of cardiff just melts it and turns it into rain before it lands here.

One question...how much fun is it playing rugby in 2 and a half feet of snow?

:)

Today it was 20*F or so this weekend on sunday its going to be a high of 7*F and a low of -2*F, that will be one cold day!!!

The lake is starting to freeze over however, i think its the only great lake that completely freezes, and once that happens we will only get major snowfall from clippers and nor'easters and such, no more lake effect :( .

Ahh tough one, i love seeing the snow!! Suprised you guys cant get a lake effect type snow off the Irish Sea!!

Well actually i prefer playing on normal grass pitches! The snow is sooo hard to run through, and the footing is atrocious, but one good thing is, well, it actually feels good to fall into the snow!

If you ever want a great workout run through 1 foot of snow, man oh man i guess that part of the rocky movie was true :eek:
