Redfield, atop the Tug Hill Plateau and no stranger to extreme snowfall, picked up a jaw-dropping 141 inches of snow over the nine-day period.

Could you imagine 140+ inches of snow?

Lake Effect Snow does this from time to time. Those of you around lakes where this occurs, have you ever witnessed something like this firsthand?

Tell us about it!

The snowbelts of the U. P. as well as NW lower Michigan can get pounded with LES. It's not uncommon to get a couple of feet in a couple of days, or more!
