Scott thanks for the EWS snow reports!

One gripe though, your use of
the term Lake Effect and applying it to Vermont.  The Lake Effect is a
bona fide weather phenomenon, but requires massive lakes on the order of
the Great Lakes and while I applaude Jefford and Leahy's funding coup,
Champlain is NOT a Great Lake.  It is far too narrow for overpassing
weather systems to gather extra moisture sufficient to noticably change
snowfall amounts.

Boy, though I wish it were true, I could go for some snow this morning.
