Here It Comes!

Greetings friends and fans. I'm your energetic doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel and this is a
 special edition of The Daily Bone. 

The other day I did a report on lake effect snow in Western NY. Well, today we have the chance to show you some! As you can see in the picture above, there is no snow. This picture was taken earlier today around 11 AM. It was even sunny out! But over the next couple hours snow clouds rolled in.

It's been snowing steadily since then! 

Dad turned on the TV to watch his favorite football team, the Buffalo Bills. Look what it looks like where they are! (Buffalo is only about 40 miles west of us.) 

FYI: The letters at the top of the screen are the closed captions. Dad uses these because he's hard of hearing.

What a mess! It looks more like a hockey rink than a football field!They had to stop about every ten or fifteen minutes so guys with blowers could clear the lines on the field. Dad says the people in the stadium were throwing snowballs at each other! 

Here's a picture of the lake effect snow that's coming off Lakes Erie and Ontario. The blue areas are where it's snowing. 

I'm going to keep watching to see how much snow we get. I'll provide updates as the day goes on.

4 PM. Check it out!

Here I am outside at 6 PM. Looks like the snow is really piling up! 

8PM. It's deep enough for schnoodling!

Hmmm. I smell squirrel footy prints.

OK. Here's my final photo. It's 11 PM. The snow seems to have stopped for the time being. The weather report says it's supposed to keep snowing like this every day this week. 

I think I'd better be getting some shut-eye. I'll need all my energy to deal with the cold snow tomorrow! Good night pups, kitties, and humans too.


  1. Wow, that lake effect is naughty, its so far reaching! All along the may have all of it, Chester, BOL!
    We might get some too, if the wind comes, but I do not think it will be as much as you are getting. Phew!
    Stay warm!

    PS, it is pretty though, until all the doggy paws make it mussed up:)

  2. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE - you are in for lots of outdoor fun, Chester!

  3. Chester OMCs you are the bestest and most thorough weatherman we put your nose and your to the snows for a most accurate report.

  5. We were so happy to be able to go out and play in the snow today. It's only going to get better as they say we are due for some more. Snow zoomies are the best. Have a great time.

  6. How crazy was that football game! We have not gotten any more snow but we still have what we got last week cause it is cold

  7. We saw all that snow on our TV when the football game was on. We wished that snow was in our yard too. Maybe we will get some for Christmas. Enjoy, Chester.

  8. How wonderful!!! We are in the mid to upper 70s here. It doesn’t feel like winter at all. Thank you for the report. It’s nice to know it’s winter somewhere!!

  9. Oh wow, C. That is a LOT of snow. I like snow, but I do not allow it to touch my belly. When it gets that deep, I need Mom to carry me. Good luck out there, buddy.

    Love and licks,
