Satellite image of "LAKE EFFECT" snow
http://www.cnn.com/TECH/space/specials/scenes/2002/01/23/content.html
This satellite image vividly demonstrates the "lake effect," which 
occurs when dry and clear air from Wisconsin acquires moisture as it 
moves over Lake Michigan and forms thick clouds before reaching the 
eastern shore. The image is from NASA's Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view 
Sensor (SeaWiFS) Project. For other Great Lakes images, including a 1999 
Lake Michigan Blue-Green Algae bloom, visit the SeaWiFS Image Archive:
