    I am curious at how much they are calling for you up there? Here In Columbus I have heard 1-3 and 2-4 from local forecasters. I hope we get it too. I am getting bored sitting around.

    Last night I saw 3 completely different forecasts on the 3 major new channels. I'll believe what we get when it actually starts piling up.

    Watch FOX8 they seem to be right more then the other channels.
    Dick Goddard seems to know his stuff. He will be the first one to say you just can't figure out how much we will get.

    Update for Columbus, Ohio. I have only seen two guys so far and they are saying anywhere from .5 inch to 3 inches. :angry: So we might get 1.5 inches. My predictions.

    We might be getting anywhere from 0-10 inches per NOAA. I am right on the state line by illinois/indiana and I bet I'm just outside the line of fire. Won't know til the snow flies!

    Rain/Sleet/Little Snow in Buffalo... Supposed to be 1-2 inches tonight and maybe more tomorrow. But with the temp dropping to near zero tomorrow evening and the lake still not frozen anything could happen.
