Lake effect snow
It's not officially winter here but it sure looks like it. The weather where I live is often controlled by winds crossing Lake Huron. This time of year when the lake is still unfrozen, snow squalls are common.
On Tuesday we were on a snow squall alert and asked to stay home unless we absolutely needed to go out because squalls can create white-outs with very little visibility.
