After giving them all this credit, I renege on the accuracy of our local weather people’s reports. Yes, I should mention they had downgraded their snowfall predictions from 12″ to 8″. But we saw 3″, maybe.
Granted, lake-effect snow is notoriously hard to predict. I will say this: it usually hits inland, off the lake’s shore, by a couple of miles…and escalates from there. We’re about a mile from the lake, so, by my estimation, we should’ve been somewhat spared. But so was everyone else.
It’s supposed to be in the upper 30s this weekend, though; those chickens will soon see their grass and beloved dusting dirtpatch before too long.
