    We got hammered Monday, Monday afternoon, Monday night and early this am. We ended up in most areas along our lakeshore with no less than 16". The worst part of this was the 25+mph winds. There were quite a few times we had to stop plowing because of zero visibility. Any way, at one point I went into a store and my truck was about 40ft away and I couldnt see it. I get back in a hear the tail end of a forecast and he said with this band we are experiencing snow rates of 4" per hour. Oh what fun! Been up since Monday 1am and its flippin' snowing again!

    We had quite a few hours of that around here last night and today. Although at my house we did not get it quite as bad, (only about 18 inches) 10 miles to the north got 3 feet and counting. Got to love lake effect.

    You can keep that lake effect snow I don't want it
    By me 1 inch causes havoc taxis , bus, and most people can't get up a small incline not even a hill and traffic backs up to no end
    Last storm started at 3 pm traffic was at a stand still due to bald tires it took me 2 hours to go 2 miles All because people don't take care of their cars
    Seriously do you guys get down to blacktop all the time or can you survive with a snow covet
