|Quoting PHX787 (Thread starter):|
Any weather buffs wanna clue me in on what happened here? It apparently came out of nowhere and it was very brief white-out conditions but left about 1in of accumulation.
Probably just a passing snow squall with the cold air getting established. Further north closer to the lakes you see this all the time just outside the main snow belts. Quick "down pour" of snow and then sun. The title of this thread is completely off basis using the word "Blizzard" since that wasn't even the case here. A short white out situation is not a blizzard - that is 3 hours or more of 35+ mph sustained winds with visibilities under a quarter of a mile caused by falling/pre-existing snow cover.
This is just a case of people being stupid and not adjusting to conditions.

Just wondering do the majority of people in snowbelt states change over to full winter tyres or use the rather useless all seasons or stick to summer tyres. Do trucks also change to winter tyres?
Some may, but it has really been hit or miss for years. Some areas haven't seen anywhere near the type of snowfalls they were use to.
