    Were outside of the lake effect snow but had enough rain yesterday that I couldn't get to work this morning lots of flooding. I work in olean and they don't often get included in lake snow either,but this time of year they could

    Ha, I was totally expecting this to be a post from someone in Utah! There's about 18" sitting on my lawn right now. And that's AFTER the sunny day we had today. We hates it, we does!
