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? 


  1. Back in the day when I lived on Lake Erie in Ohio, I swear, every single day of winter it snowed, every single day. “Lake effect” are words to shiver by!

  2. Karen Said:

    Well…our “event” turned out to be little more than a dusting of the white stuff. But there have been winters where it did snow every single day!
