Buffalo Lake Effect

A time-lapse view of Lake Erie during the lake-effect snow storm of November 18, 2014. This was taken from my office window in the Guaranty Building at Hodgson Russ.

Captured with my Apple iPhone 6, time-lapse mode, default settings! Love my phone!!

    Great video Alfonso. I once saw a lake effect storm brewing driving by
