    There are more to this set but one is really all one needs. It's not every day one sees a police car buried in the middle of the street. Ironically the wire he was sitting there watching got torn down shortly after this was taken by a bus driver who did not see it....

    Yeah, we are getting the ever present Lake Effect....or as I prefer Lake Defect over here on this side of the state.

    This is a RECENT photo? This is the situation you're facing NOW, as we speak???
    Oh :shock:

    That's a lot of snow.
    But somehow, despite the fact that it sure looks cold, for why else should there be such heaps of snow (?), the colour temps are not cold, which I like. Dusk/dawn light and the lights of the police cars (red, yellow, but no blue!) help things a lot.

    So he was sitting there, watching that cable/wire ... to no avail?

    Not quite, this is actually from the first snofall that came, It was shot in mid to late October and it melted away prior to the very similar snow fall we got the other night.

    This had all fallen in a period of about twelve hours and it was all lake effect snow. I don't know if you have experience with lake effect snow but it is a very heavy and wet snow, it literally weighs almost twice as much as the snow that falls in Montana or Wyoming. It gathers additional moisture off the lakes hence the name.

    As we speak we are under just about the same amount but it did not all come at once and was not all lake effect.

    There is a green light....does that help any :D....on a more serious note :lol:, NY police departments for the most part use all red lights, I've seen a couple places with a blue one but not many, but anywho the warm temps of this one are a result of the manor in wich this was shot and subsiquently scanned. The lighting is rather deceptive, this is actually predawn on an overcast morning, the light it self had a blue cast then coupled with my scaners blue casting tendancy, the image required major correction.

    Well, kinda, the snow ripped it down and he had to sit and make sure no one hit it or played with it and in the end one of the busses ended up doing just that, I think the thought it would clear the bus but it snagged on the horn.
