Northern U.P. Lake effect storm

Discussion in 'Storm Pictures' started by ChevYooper, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. So we have about 10 inches on the ground now with some huge drifts as the winds have been in the 60mph + range. It started snowing monday and hasnt let up yet. We got 5 more inches this morning and they are calling for 15-20 more inches with a possibility of a two foot dumping by friday night. Then the 10day forecast shows it staying in the 20's with a chance of snow each day!!!!!

    Those piles are getting high out there!!!

    Sorry no pics, i've been busy (as you can guess)...but i'll get some up here soon

    Good luck guys

    Enjoy it while you've got it. I'm still waiting for our turn here just south of Buffalo, N.Y. Maybe we'll get the Lake in gear soon!

    We've had a lot forecasted, but it seems to keep missing us. We probably had 6" or more this weekend-- Nice heavy, slushy crap. :dizzy:

    Schools were closed because of the forecast, but we hardly got any today. :confused:

    Might want to do a little research. Keweenaw peninsula, Calumet, Marquette get a heck of a lot more snow than Buffalo does, and on a more regular basis. Even back in the big storm that you guys got a few years ago during Christmas and New Years, Pellston MI had over 90" of snow, they just don't get the same level of media coverage as Buffalo does.

    Deffinatly going to load up and head up after school thursday. I havent seen that much snow before christmas in a whiel.
  20. yeah, the snow is great, and the trails have a 12" base or so.

    Trails are being groomed and we're getting at least 2" more each night, good riding so far

    Also, lots of powder off trail, i found some 3' -4' spots

    Happy plowing/ riding guys!!
