You guys sure get your fair share and then some of snow in the wintertime, though, I imagine.

Erie likes to complain about the winters, but it's usually not all that bad. If the lake fails to freeze completely or conditions are right, we can get considerable snow, but it's rarely enough to shut down the city. Buffalo prefers the lake not to freeze, since the westerly winds often blow the snow off the frozen lake and dump it onshore right in their lap. But open water usually means copious snow for us.
