Historic Christmas Lake Effect Blizzard


 Share

Recommended Posts

With the comparisons to the 1977 Blizzard, is it the length of time with 0 vis that is being used to benchmark? It was also a different type.

Amazing stuff that way. Historic for all 5 great lakes!

Unfortunately not for me, its been lackluster and an epic bust locally for my region however its a solid winter storm. For my lake (Huron), its annihilating Parry Sound currently with a dream band. Wish I was in Buffalo rn.

95 minute jeb walk. I maxed out at 1600 viewers, some people even donated lol. They all thought I was insane but I absolutely loved every second of it. I wasn't even cold, just wore my winter hiking gear. I don't think you can see the comments, so ignore the talking.

 

I am sure that bit at the end of your video is exactly what 77 was.  This could be worse in many ways.

The guy I sub contract for was plowing back then and today while talking with him over the phone I asked if the conditions were like in 77. He told me the winds and lack of visibility was on par with or maybe worse then 77 but the overall impact of the storm won't nearly come close. He said back in 77 the storm took everyone by surprise for the most part which lead to so many stranded people in cars.

The 72.0" through December 23rd is the 4th highest figure through that date. Only 1945, 1976, and 2000 had more. Both 1976 and 2000 had a lot more snow during the remainder of winter.
