Hi John. I love the site. I'm not a snowmobiler, but I am an avid xc-skier. I know several skiers like myself that look forward to getting the "real scoop" from you!

I am in Baudette, and we did get measurable LES, about 3-4 inches of fluffy snow on Nov 17th. At times I would guess it was snowing at the rate of 1" an hour. I did not think it was possible to get LES here, but the wind was from the NNW at the time with 35+ miles of open water to work with, it was cool to see. A few miles to west of town got no snow at all.

I teach in onamia on the south west side of mille lacs and I would be willing to be that we got lake effect there about two weeks ago. it snowed all day, on and off, pretty hard at times too, very, very fluffy flakes, sometimes even when the sun was shining it was snowing. the wind was coming out of the NE that day at about 7 mph and most of the lake was still open. When I left at 330 in the afternoon, i got about 5 miles out of town and it quit and you could tell it hadnt snowed there at all. just close to the lake

the kids have been saying people have been out in the bays fishing, They say there is a good 3 inches of ice in most of the big bays and even on parts of the main lake, other lakes in the area like shakopee people have been out on for a week already.
