Lake Country Roads and Sky

vicinity of Penn Yan, New York

Probably because of 'lake effect' weather conditions, there seems always to be something happening in the sky, any time of day. There are scattering contrails in the middle picture here, but most of the cloud effects seem to come directly from the atmospherics associated with the temperature differentials between the land and the large bodies of water. Years ago I encountered sudden extreme snowfall from lake effect not far from here, just up to the northwest around Rochester, but hadn't realized how much of a year 'round deal these atmospheric effects are.
