Lake Effect Snow

This is what happens when you live near a large lake, and it gets very cold. The wind blows across the lake and picks up moisture. It dumps that moisture, in the form of snow when it hits dry land. Right now, it's 18 degrees (supposed to go down to the single digits tonight)and the wind is blowing hard. There is a road right in front of my house, but you can hardly see the cars.

Good thing I got my grocery shopping done before this started. Nice to be home, all safe and cozy with the snow falling and the wind howling outside. Chalk one up for being retired.

That is a huge positive , not having to drive in to work in this type weather!!!

Plus you have your feeder station set up so you can enjoy the birds coming for visits.

Next Fall winter spring you need to check out the Cornell, "Project Feeder Watch" ( record observations ever two weeks). If you are inside a Christmas Bird Count circle, some circle leaders collect feeder reports as well
