It’s the wind blowing from out of the west over Big Blue that is creating our current weather.  Almost all of our current snowfall is lake effect. The cold is a result of a polar vortex.

Last year on this date we had 10 inches total.  2014-53 in,  2013-28 in, 2012-10 in, 2011-half inch, 2010-21 in, 2009-29 in, 2008-55 in, 2007-33 in, 2006-35 in, 2005-70 in, 2004-10 in.

Anyway, the cold and the wind have made it difficult for me to get to the shoreline, so many of my photo’s are taken from the Jeep.

Looks like a “long winters nap” for Fishtown as it relaxes after a busy summer, and prepares for the springtime rush of visitors.

Safety first Mr. B. Still cannot figure out where that new rooftop is coming from behind “The Other Side” across from the Fishtown shantys.

From the Jeep–so what. You wont get any complaints from us. The fact that you’re making the effort & still producing great pix, is fine with most of us.
