Lake Effect Snow “Event”

So, after a wonderful Autumn — warm, sunny, very pleasant — we are in for some Lake Effect snow tonight and tomorrow.  The weather forecast is calling the band of snow the “first organized lake effect snow event” of the season.  I have two questions (both have been in back of my mind since I moved to the Snow Belt).  First, what exactly is a “snow event”?  And second, is there such thing as a “disorganized lake effect snow event?
