Tea For Two ~ Lesser Lake Effect, Hamburg, NY, USA by 

This tableau sits invitingly, not on a main street or anywhere obvious, but on a narrow, flat slab overlooking a bank parking lot in Hamburg, NY. This illustrates the amount of snow we got in this neck of the woods, just a few miles from the areas that were socked & hammered with snow (4 to 5 feet in places) from narrow lake effect bands off Lake Erie two days ago. Just enough for me. It also illustrates the immutable laws of al fresco dining – just about anywhere will do. A few days later, all five Great Lakes were firing… eastern shores of the lakes were getting more or less snow, with streamers from Lake Huron/Georgian Bay affecting areas as far south as west-central Pennsylvania. All because of deep troughs of arctic air passing over the relatively warmer waters of the lakes.

    nice capture & treatment Sheila! However, no change on my anti-winter sentiments.

  • Oh, well – I’d offer you a cuppa, but you’d make some unkind remark about the winter seating arrangements, so never mind…. Thanks, Brock!

    great shot Sheila

  • Thanks, Trevor. Ray went into the bank, & I sat in the car gazing at this little scene for about five minutes before deciding it was worth the effort to get out & shoot!!

    Excellent, Sheila. Well spotted.

    Great shot, Sheila! At first I thought that you’ve visited my place. Looks almost identical.

  • Since we both have Winter Climates, maybe we should start an international Winter Tea Room franchise…. Yesterday we got our Christmas tree & visited with the resident reindeer at the tree farm. They were bored…. Thanks, Ritva.

    Great find, Sheila, and nicely captured. I third Brock and Dave. Still nowt down here in the Tropics.

  • Snuffle on, Snottery. Your day will come, by cracky! In the meantime, doesn’t this look cozy? Doesn’t one get hemorrhoids sitting on things like this? Thanks, Mikey.

    I like that …

  • Thanks, Tom; it was just There…. Begging to be captured. Should probably offer it to the local paper! And thanks for the favorite. Just watch where you sit.
